Product Description

This cotton throw is full of looks oozing a charming ambience with its fashionable geometric patterns on a grey background. Zigzag throw is a woven fabric hand-loomed on traditional wooden shuttle looms. This Turkish cotton throw will definitely add an aura to your living space with the pattern and the colour contrast.

Reversible, Durable, Machine-Washable

Zigzag throws are not all about the fashionable looks. They are strong and durable fabrics, machine-washable and quick-drying. Due to their compactness, they will not take up much space in cupboards or in the washing machine or in your handbag if you wish to use it as a travel blanket.

Super Versatile

Although they are described as throws, they also make an outstandingly absorbent bath towel. They will look fabulous in your bathroom and are amazingly soft and absorbent. Alternatively, you can use them as a beach blanket, a tablecloth, a massage couch cover or even as a scarf!

Supporting Fairtrade

Like many other Cotton & Olive products, the Zigzag Cotton Throw is also a product of Fairtrade, sourced directly from the Turkish artisan weavers’ handlooms. We design and source our products from this particular region in South West Turkey, which has 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.
