A Heritage of 600 years

Peshtemal is a gift from Anatolia to the world. It is an authentic Turkish fabric with a history of almost 600 years. It was used in Ottoman Hammams (hot steam and cold-water baths) as towels. This multipurpose fabric is hand loomed and flat-woven with hand-tied fringes and it has been done with the same technique for 600 years.




Got the pink/orange/beige chevron one. It looks amazing and it's very soft. I was surprised by the quality of the fabric, it's 100% cotton with no synthetic fibers at all. It's very light but very effective in absorbing water. I washed it and it is still as new. A very well made item that I strongly suggest as an alternative to traditional bath towels.

After we came back from our visit to Turkey we regretted not getting one of those towels they provided in the Turkish baths. I was pleased to see similar options online. The towel seems well made and was the advertised size. It is as soft as we remembered and quite absorbent. Will be using this in our trips to the beach and in the backyard this summer!

I've been looking for a light weight towel but I really didn't want to get a synthetic fabric stuff. I was suggested these turkish towels and this was exactly what I was looking for. It is much thinner compared to regular towels but has good absorbency to use after shower. And it dries fairly quickly. I needed this for travel but I may just replace all my towels with these.

I bring my Turkish towel everywhere I go! I never know when I may need it for a quick day trip up to the hot springs, a picnic, or to wrap around my body for extra covering. It Is light and compact yet sturdy enough to be extremely versatile. I LOVE that it is a quarter of the size and weight of normal towels and dries TEN TIMES FASTER!! Like I said It literally goes everywhere with me!!
