Always read the care label before washing

It is recommended to wash your towels before you use them for the first time

Try not to use the fabric conditioner

We don’t recommend tumble-drying. If it is preferred for the sake of convenience, we only recommend low-heat tumble-drying. The best practice is to leave your peshtemal towels to air-dry on their own. It is much better for the environment as well as for your energy bills

Keep them away from strong, direct heat while drying

Peshtemal is a woven-fabric that has evolved from the historical Turkish hammam tradition. The Turkish peshtemal towels have been traditionally woven on hand looms by local villagers in the South-West of Turkey. Now, they have moved beyond the boundaries of hammam and have become trendy bath and beach towels.

The Peshtemal towels have a very distinctive stripy pattern with hand-finished tassels on the fringes which make them truly authentic. They are 100% pure cotton. Cotton and bamboo blends are also sought-after. The size of the peshtemal hand towel is average 50 x 90 cm and once folded, it is absolutely compact to pack and carry. It is also lightweight, easy to wash and dry. With each wash, these peshtemal  towels will get softer and more absorbent.

The Turkish peshtemal towels are very versatile and long lasting towels. Their compactness allows them to be used in various occasions as a picnic blanket, sofa throw, children’s blanket, tablecloth or sarong. Peshtemal bathrobes for adults and children are also excellent bath and beachwear with their fast drying properties and lightness. Bamboo blends are highly recommended as baby towels and spa towels.

These towels are hugely popular in the Turkish Riviera and increasingly so in Europe and America.

    I have been using Cotton&Olive’s Bamboo Peshtemal towels all summer; they are a joy to have, super absorbent, light, and very pleasing to the eye, so convenient to have, a pleasure to use. Highly recommended!

  2. Mary Suphi

    I have been using pestemal towels for years and love them so much. They are the perfect beach towel – light to carry so it is easy to take one for all five of us, good to use on the sun lounger and then easy to wrap around yourself if you need to go anywhere. The children use them on the hot sand too. I usually take a small version too for wiping off sand etc. They dry out in no time. I have also used them as spontaneous picnic rugs!

    We took our towels with us on our holiday to Turkey; they are light, absorb an enormous amount of water and dry quickly. My 21 year old son took them to France and really liked them too. I can highly recommend these wonderful towels!

  4. Ben Shatz

    Absolutely love this towel. Although it’s not as soft as I expected after I washed it, I have full confidence that like all peshtemal towels it will soften in time. I have a few other Turkish towels already and I think this is my favourite for the shower. What i’m most amazed about is how absorbent it is. It dries me and my hair after a bath easily, and doesn’t stay damp, making my bathroom musty. Completely love it and will look at buying more!
