The perfect gift, our Peshtemal towels are hand-loomed by the worlds finest textile weavers in Southeast Turkey with the same Turkish cotton grown and used in this region for thousands of years.

Featuring our original hula girl and logo, with one dark purple and one light natural cotton side and completed with hand tied fringes. These classic towels are eco-friendly and lavish. Because Turkish cotton is premium cotton that has extra long fibers, it is much more absorbent, quick drying, light weight, sand resistant, multifunctional, and long-lasting then an ordinary terry cloth towel. Fewer joins results in stronger and smoother cotton threads. Turkish cotton is the worlds only long fiber cotton and is grown in the small but productive Aegean Region. Turkish cotton becomes even softer, fluffier, and more absorbent with each successive washing. The colors do not fade or bleed over time. Machine wash in cool water with like colors (no harsh detergents, dryer sheets, or bleach) and tumble on low heat or hang to dry.

What Are Peshtemal Towels?

Peshtemal towels are not your average terry cloth. (Though they are just as absorptive.) A peshtemal (sometimes peshtemal is also spelled pestemal or peshtamal) is also called a fouta or hamman towel. Peshtemals are large, flat and velvety soft. Inspired by the bath towels used in legendary Turkish spas, these tightly woven creations are extremely strong and durable, and feature a stylish handcrafted fringe that makes them chic as well as practical.

Because peshtemal towels are flat-woven, they’re extremely light and take up very little space, making them the perfect travel companion. Peshtemals are the ideal take-along for your next vacation, you can roll them up and they pack beautifully.

They’re also wonderfully versatile. Of course, they make fabulous bathroom towels. But you can just as easily wear your peshtemal as a poolside or beachside wrap. Many a celebrity has been spotted wearing one along the beaches of St. Tropez and Cannes (think Jennifer Aniston, Steven Spielberg, Robert De Niro and Demi Moore). They can be worn around the body like a sarong or pareo, for a chic cover-up. It’s light and airy and feels great against your skin!

Peshtemal towels also look fabulous draped over the shoulders on a cool summer evening. And they double up nicely as home textiles like table runners, sofa throws and even impromptu picnic blankets.

Our peshtemal towels are made from the finest Turkish cotton. They’re luxurious, absorbent and quick drying, and maintain their shape and texture beautifully, even after several washings.
