What is a Turkish Towel?
Turkish towels are flat woven, lightweight towels that are both beautiful and functional. Also known as peshtemal, fouta or hammam towel, Turkish towels are more compact and versatile than terry looped towels. They can be used as a bath, beach or kitchen towel as well as a picnic blanket, scarf, sarong, tablecloth and even curtains. They are the ultimate go to piece that you will reach for everyday.
What makes Olive and Linen Turkish Towels Unique?
It's all about the ingredients! Vast majority of Turkish towels are made from single ply, lower grade cotton -most times not even Turkish cotton even if the product was made in Turkey- and requires the application of chemicals in order to make the low quality, thin and fragile yarn strong enough to be woven. These chemicals cause the yarn to harden resulting in a towel with a rougher texture and much lower absorbency.
We only use two-ply, 100% long staple premium Turkish cotton so that we can avoid the application of unnecessary chemicals. Our yarn is all natural and already strong enough to be woven. Each product goes through extensive quality control and absorbency testing to meet our own high standards. The result is a very soft and absorbent Turkish towel that is naturally durable and free of harmful chemicals!
Olive and Linen Turkish Towels are simply good for you and your home.
Love the weight and the style!
I love olive and linen Turkish towels. My first order was for our bathroom. The towels dry super quick and look fabulous. Then I bought them for the kitchen. Definitely a great price, style and great quality.
Exactly what I was looking for!
I am in love with my turkish hand towels! Not only do they look beautiful and dress up almost any type of decor, but they also serve their purpose nicely! No more terry cloth for me!
I love these towels so much. After one wash they were so soft and absorbent. I will definitely be purchasing more!!
