WHAT IS A TURKISH PESHTEMAL TOWEL?
Peshtemal is a flat woven authentic Turkish towel dating back centuries to the time when hammams or bath houses were an integral part of people's lives both for cleansing and relaxation. Hammams played a central role as a social gathering place back in those days. The peshtemal has proven itself to be an enduring design as it is still widely used in many countries around the world. It is superior to terry towels in many ways. The peshtemal is ultra lightweight, extremely absorbent and quick drying. It is especially great for the beach as it dries fast and does not pick up sand like terry towels. Perfect for home, travel or a trip to the beach.
