Add texture to your home decor with the Plush Wavy Turkish Towels! They are extremely versatile and larger in size than traditional towels. Ideal for use as bath towels, beach towels, beach blankets or even sarongs. Turkish towels are also great for travel, as they are lightweight, take up less space and dry quickly. Beware you will never want to go back to using terry towels after experiencing these! Also available in a larger version.
Originally used in Turkish baths, Turkish towels, also known as peshtamels or hammam towels, have been traditionally hand-loomed in Turkey for centuries. They are made using extra-long, tightly woven fibers which gives them a lightweight, yet highly absorbent quality. The patterns feature vibrant motifs conveying the timeless heritage of the Antatolia culture.
Our Turkish towels are loomed by small, family owned workshops in the Denizli region of Turkey. Weaving is the main source of income for these skilled weavers, who pride themselves on keeping the looming tradition alive, utilizing manual craftsmanship without compromising quality. They only use eco-friendly, OEKO-TEX certified, 100% natural fibers such as cotton and bamboo and colors are achieved through non-harmful dyes. Tassels are hand-knotted by women in their homes.
