Turkey is known for producing some of the highest quality cotton products in the world, and their towels are as absorbent as traditional terrycloth towels, but take up less room and dry very quickly. Known as a peshtemal, it is a traditional towel used in baths. A staple of Persian and Ottoman hammam culture, dating back hundreds of years, the peshtemal was originally designed to help individual bathers maintain their privacy. In addition to being highly absorbent, peshtemals dry faster than thicker towels.

Because peshtemal towels are flat-woven, they’re extremely light and take up very little space, making them the perfect travel companion. Peshtemals are the ideal take-along for your next vacation, you can roll them up and they pack beautifully.

They’re also wonderfully versatile. Of course, they make fabulous bathroom towels. But you can just as easily wear your peshtemal as a poolside or beachside wrap.  The can be worn around the body like a sarong or pareo, for a chic cover-up. It’s light and airy and feels great against your skin!

Peshtemal towels also look fabulous draped over the shoulders on a cool summer evening. And they double up nicely as home textiles like table runners, sofa throws and even impromptu picnic blankets.

Our peshtemal towels are made from the finest Turkish cotton. They’re luxurious, absorbent and quick drying, and maintain their shape and texture beautifully, and continue to soften after repeated washings.
