Product Description

Striking Geometric Patterns on Grey Base

This pure cotton throw is full of looks and charming ambience with its highly trendy geometric patterns on a fashionable grey background. Zig Zag throw is a woven fabric and hand-loomed on traditional looms. What makes this Turkish cotton throw really charming is not only the in-fashion geometric patterns but also the fact that they have been woven against a grey background. This makes the colourful patterns really pop out nicely in a well-balanced fashion. This Turkish cotton throw will definitely add up an aura to your home living. We have created a shortcut for you to browse the other throws and bedspreads.

Reversible. Sturdy. Machine-Washable

Zig Zag throws are not all about the looks. They are a very strong woven fabric that you will be enjoying a long time wash after wash.  They are machine-washable – preferably low spin, low temperatures. No tumble-drying would be essential as they dry in no time which is a ‘green’ contribution to our planet. Due to its compactness, they will not take up much space in the cupboards, neither in the washing.

Super Versatile

Yes, we call them ‘Throws’ but nothing stops you using them as outstandingly absorbent bath towels. They will look fabulous in your bathroom and amaze you with their soft feel and absorbency. Alternatively, you can use them as tablecloths, beach blanket or a very trendy scarf. We see a lot of people creatively use this highly trendy peshtemal as a scarf. Let us give you one more inspiration – they look super charming as a bed layering whilst giving protection to your bed.

Supporting Fairtrade

Like many other Cotton & Olive products, Zigzag Cotton Throw is also a product of a fair trade, presented to you straight from the Turkish artisan weavers’ handlooms. We design and source our products from this particular region in the South West of Turkey only, specialised in traditional cotton cloth weaving for centuries.

Always read the care label before washing

After each wash, your peshtemal towel will get softer and more absorbent

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

Wash on a gentle cycle programme, max 40C.

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.
