Turkish Hammam towels are on-trend right now. Everybody knows about the ancient Turkish bath tradition known as Hammam. Now you can experience the luxury of Hammam towels and robes in your own home and in your essential travel kit.
These super-lightweight, quick-drying natural cotton and bamboo towels have become the new must-have items for both home and away.
Perfect for travel
If you love the great outdoors, exploring and travelling or are simply curious about intriguingly beautiful things, Hammam products represent a lifestyle of freedom, style and natural beauty.
They are so compact, they take up a tiny space in the cupboard, rucksack or washing machine.
100% cotton, totally flat-woven fabric, making them lightweight.
Perfect to use as a mini comfy blanket when travelling or as a modesty cover when visiting religious sites.
Hammam towels can be worn as a sarong for casual lounging on the beach or used as spa wraps.
At picnics, beaches and in the countryside they are perfect to lie on, use as a sun-shade, hair turban, or shawl.
Easy to care for
Hammam towels are machine washable but are especially handy when no washing facility is nearby. You can rinse them under running water and they dry super-quick.
