Turkish towels, also referred to as Peshtemal , are a unique piece of craftsmanship, taught from region to region, with the knowledge being passed down among families and communities. Even though Turkish towels look oh so modern, the turkish towels we carry are a product of this ancient tradition and centuries of experience. The process has not changed much since the 17th century and each piece is still loomed by artisans and craftsmen.
Turkish Towels are made from luxurious Turkish cotton, which has extra-long fibers and requires less number of joints while weaving. This makes them ultra soft and more comfortable than just regular towels. Because of these unique fibers, Turkish towels are known to become even softer, fluffier, and more absorbent with each successive washing! Basically, the more you use them – the softer they get. You also get a couple of added benefits when you make the “switch-over”. Peshtemals dry super fast so you can skip the dryer and just hang them to dry and they take up much less space in the linen cupboard. A big win for the environment!
