Made from 100% organic Turkish cotton with a high thread count for an extraordinarily soft towel. Each one is dyed but never bleached for perfect color saturation.

Used for centuries in Turkish hamams, or baths, the pestemal (pesh-te-mahl) is the original “Turkish Bath Towel”. They are a soft and smooth, flat woven cloth, made by hand, usually from cotton, finished with fringes. The hand or hair towel size is called a peskir (pesh-kir). 

These towels are known for their eco-friendly properties:

  • Highly absorbent, quick to dry, and will not collect sand
  • Lightweight and compact, fold flat, minimizes storage space
  • Naturally anti-bacterial – will not acquire a musty odor
  • Environmentally friendly – quick to wash and dry, saving energy
  • Some of the weaves may need several washings and dryings to reach full absorbency and softness

 

19" x 39" 

Soak in cold water for 4-6 hours one time before use to increase absorbency.  Hang to dry.

Everyday care: machine wash cold or warm, no bleach and  NO FABRIC SOFTENER!  Air dry or tumble dry taking care - do not over dry cotton.
