For a stylish and lightweight choice, trade in your terrycloth for a Peshtemal this summer.

The Turkish Bath is a celebrated tradition which dates back centuries and remains popular across the globe. So it is not surprising that the Turks would know a thing or two about creating the perfect towel to accompany this special ritual.
Turkish towels - which are also known as Peshtemals- are hand-woven from linen, cotton, or organic bamboo and colours using vegetable dye. They are lightweight, super absorbent and dry very quickly, making them a practical and stylish alternative to traditional terry cloth towels. They are the perfect summer staple- easy to roll up for an on-the-go beach blanket or towel and to use at home as a light summer throw. This handy accessory is already popular on the beaches of Cannes and St. Tropez.
There is a very good reason why we love Peshtemal Towels. Actually, there is more than one.
  • They come in gorgeous colours
  • They get softer with each wash (unlike terry towels which eventually turn to sandpaper, they are highly absorbent and fast-drying so no more moldy smelly towels.T
  • hey take up less space and travel well.
  • When used at the beach, Peshtemals tend to pick up less sand than terry.
Critical Alert: Always wash and dry three times before first use and never use fabric conditioner.
The Peshtemal also known as Fouta, can be a picnic blanket, a scarf, a bed throw, a sarong, a pareo, a yoga mat, a beach-sauna-pool-yacht towel or even a very stylish idea for your guest's room bathroom.
