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 pestemal has been hand-woven in a Turkish village using both natural and traditional methods, this very fine woven towel is of an ecru colour accented with thick and thin dark blue stripes and tassels on both ends. Renowned for their softness and absorbency, these towels are a staple for every home.

Measurements: 180cm x 100cm

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.
