Blue and White Striped Pestemal
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.
These light-weight towels are renowned for their absorbency and softness. Hand-woven in a Turkish village using both natural and traditional methods, this very fine woven dark blue and white striped pestemal is made of 100% linen with tassels on both ends. Measurements: 175cm x 100cm (approximately) 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.
*All products are hand loomed – any slight organic imperfections reflect the individual artisan craftwork behind each towel.
