What is the Peshtemal?

Peshtemals are thin and extra-absorbent towels that are usually 100% cotton. Lately some are manufactured to have bamboo mixed with cotton. The peshtemal tradition goes back centuries to Turkish baths - “Hammams”.

The peshtemal towels will grow softer with each use and wash. 

Why use peshtemal versus terry towel?

Peshtemals are thin, extra-absorbent, and quick-to-dry versus terry towels. They take up much less space in your beach bag, luggage, linen closet. They are compact and lightweight.

Where to use my peshtemals?

You will love them so much, anywhere...Peshtemals are great for the beach and pool and bath as classic use. However you can also use them in your gym bag, as a yoga mat, as a picnic blanket, a throw, a shawl, even a table cloth.
