Product Description

Accent colour on grey

ZigZag cotton throw is very fashionable with its geometric patterns and vivid colour options. What makes this product even more distinct is using grey as a background colour. Hence, the hand-knotted tassels are also in grey colour. This product is produced on traditional wooden shuttle looms. ZigZag cotton throw will definitely add a different eclectic aura to your living space with its subtle colour contrast. You can use it over a settee or over a single bed for layering and/or protection. You will find this product very handy for your alfresco gatherings, garden parties as a blanket.

Reversible, durable, machine-washable

Zigzag reversible throws are not all about the fashionable looks.  They are soft, compact and quick-dry. You will be surprised how little space they take up in cupboards or in the washing machine. They are machine washable. We recommend a low spin programme, max 30 centigrade. You don’t need to tumble dry unless you wish to. It will dry fast if you leave it flat to air dry.

Supporting Fairtrade

ZigZag throws are coming to your doorsteps directly from our local weavers’ looms. We source our products straight from Denizli, Buldan region at the south-west of Turkey. This tiny village has a centuries-old weaving tradition. You can find out more about this place in our blog article on Buldan, the homeland of the hammams.

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.
