Cotton Hand Sized Pestemal with Stripes


Used for centuries, Turkish bath towels are the traditional flat-woven towels used in hamams (Turkish baths). Traditionally striped peştemal have been offered at Turkish bathhouses since before the Ottoman Empire.

Traditionally hand-woven on looms in Turkey, they are highly absorbent and fast drying. Our Turkish towels have been handwoven in Anatolia with raw linen, cotton and natural vegetable dye.  


This 100% cotton hand sized pestemal has been hand-woven in a Turkish village using both natural and traditional methods. Available in either the white or grey with accented stripes and tassels on both ends, this hand towel is the perfect complement to your full-sized pestemal.

Measurements: 100cm x 40cm 

Care instructions: Gentle laundering is best but can be 
machine washed up to 30°C. 
Line dry or tumble dry on low heat. Please do not use bleach, harsh detergents, dryer sheets or high heat.  We recommend washing before first use. Your pestemal will become softer and more absorbent over time.
