Turkish Towels


Pestemals (or peshtemal), the fringed cotton towels traditionally used in Turkish baths, originated in Bursa, Turkey in the 17th century. Thanks to their flat, light-weight cotton weave, pestemals absorb water faster, dry quicker, and take up less space than standard towels. Pestemals aren’t limited to the bath, spa or beach. Use as a shawl or blanket, a decorative throw for a couch or bed, a tablecloth, or wrap for baby or nursing.
