These towels, also named Pestemals, are a very traditional design dating back hundred of years. They were originally used in the Hammams or public baths. Our towels are organic, 100% cotton, handmade in Turkey with traditional wooden looms and are naturally hypoallergenic. Their long cotton fibres make them strong and versatile. They are fine, lightweight, quick drying and they take up very little space in your luggage, beach bag and apartment. If thats not all enough reason to invest then look at the rainbow of colours and patterns available!
