A modern take on the hammam textile with 600 years of Turkish heritage
We bring the finest examples of Turkish hammam home textiles, fairly traded and sourced to your doorstep. You can shop for woven cotton bedspreads & throws of various sizes; hammam beach and bath towels; exquisite quality bath robes; vegan-friendly soap bars from the sunny Turkish Mediterranean all in one place.
Our concept is to provide high-quality, lightweight textiles made of premium natural fibres for high performance to keep up with the busy modern living.
Our bedspreads and throws are perfect as beach or picnic blankets to stretch out on. The XL sizes are handy for alfresco outings or for family gatherings or to be used as children’s play area rug. They are not only perfect as a sofa or bed cover but also great to wrap yourself in when the chilly weather starts. Their patterns and colours make them a brilliant choice for bed layering to give some visual depth and fresh look to your bedroom. You can even use one as a unique tablecloth.
We love biodegradable natural fibre free of plastic. Cotton is our hero. But we love also bamboo, linen, cashmere and wool.
Being lightweight means our products are compact and quicker to dry. It also means that they use less energy in washing, drying and storing. We are committed to using premium quality yarns which ensures higher absorbency, softness and strength. Our compact hammam towels are simply the best if you love the great outdoors, exploring and travelling. We believe that Hammam represents a lifestyle of freedom, style and simplicity.
Easy to care for
Hammam textiles are super easy to look after. They are machine-washable. Our recommended temperature for cotton is 40˚ but you can wash at your preferred temperature. Hammam is especially handy when there’s no washing facilities around, such as when camping, at music festivals, yachting or sailing. Just rinse your hammam towel and let it dry itself. Hammam textiles don’t require any ironing – huge bonus!
What’s in our name?
Cotton – because we love cotton fibre and the products beautifully made from it.
Olive – this stands for the beautifully hand-crafted, all-natural soaps based on olive oil from my ancient Turkish hometown of Antakya. These olive oil soap bars enriched with the natural essence oils are perfect complimentary items to the adorable Cotton towels.
Cotton and Olive sells a wide range of authentic towels, bathrobes, hand towels, bedspread and throws online. We also ship worldwide on wholesale terms.
