What is a Turkish Towel?
Turkish towels also known as peshtemal, fouta or hammam towels are flat woven from Turkish cotton or linen using traditional methods. They are ultra lightweight, extremely absorbent and quick drying. Turkish towels are perfect for bath, kitchen or beach.
What makes Olive&Linen Turkish Towels Unique?
It's all about the ingredients! Vast majority of Turkish towels are made from single ply cotton and requires the application of chemicals in order to make the thin and fragile yarn strong enough to be woven. These chemicals cause the yarn to harden resulting in a towel with a rougher texture. We only use extra strong, two-ply long staple Turkish cotton so that we can avoid the application of unnecessary chemicals. Our yarn is already strong enough to be woven. Our towels are hand loomed on traditional looms using minimally processed Turkish cotton. The result is a very soft and absorbent Turkish towel that is naturally durable and free of chemicals!
