About Ilgen Paydas

I am Ilgen - I was born and bred in Turkey and unexpectedly moved to UK with the family in 2005 and even more unexpectedly stayed here for good. The reason for this move was my husband’s job assignment with BP, UK. My passion for peshtemal towels started in 2006. I was always fond of these handy traditional towels as a user. I started to try to sell them in the UK, although it was more like a hobby to me rather than a business. After a few years it became a serious business with great potential for growth but never losing its fun spirit, in the least. I am the greatest fan of these Hammam/Peshtemal towels. Now we have introduced many other products and ranges to complement these towels and we are delighted to bring these high quality products to the UK.
