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.
