WHAT IS A TURKISH 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.
New! Honeycomb Natural Turkish Towel / Throw
Handwoven from start to finish by a family of craftsman on traditional wooden looms using the finest Turkish cotton available. The cotton fibers are grown, harvested and spun on the family farm. The family members work painstakingly on traditional looms to weave these works of art in a very subtle honeycomb pattern. These peshtemals are as functional as they are beautiful and will get only better with age. All colors feature vertical red stripes running down the sides.
New! Linen Hand - Kitchen Towel
Handwoven from a blend of Turkish linen and cotton with very subtle tonal stripes. Due to the high quality linen fiber content this towel is ultra lightweight and silky soft. Linen is a naturally cool fabric that absorbs water quickly but does not retain the liquid. It dries very fast resulting in a naturally antimicrobial towel. Linen is also one of the most durable materials and becomes even softer with use.
