  • Peshtemal
    Turkish towels, also known as peshtemal, have been used in Turkish baths for over 600 years. Each region of Turkey has its own design. The peshtemal we provide come from the Aegean area of Turkey. According to ancient Turkish traditions, when a couple decided to marry they gave each other a bath set as a gift, with the peshtemal the most indispensable piece of the set.

    Originally handwoven, with the advent of electricity most are now woven on electric looms, with the ecru colored fringes hand finished. The patterns are woven into the cloth, with the colors from vegetable dyes. The towels are thin, lightweight and will dry quickly, The towels are 100% cotton and very absorbent, Machine wash and dry (5-7% initial shrinkage). Made in Turkey.

    Towel or Shawl? Traditionally, Turkish peshtemal were used as both towels and clothing, similar to a sarong or fouta. We think the bath towel sized peshtemal are wonderful casual shawls!
