The Peshtemal is the traditional Turkish towel used in the historical Turkish bath known as the ‘Hamam’. This flat-woven towel is compact, highly absorbent, quick drying, lightweight, and extremely versatile. They are a practical alternative to the towel at home and also make a perfect companion for beach, gym, and travel.
Our bathrobes all come from the legendary region of Denizli, Turkey. This is where the world’s finest cotton for towels and bathrobes has been grown since ancient times. These Turkish Peshtemal bathrobes will make you feel like you are relaxing at the finest hotel or spa.
The luxurious loop towel was birthed sometime in the 18th century. It is called the havlu, which means 'with loops' in Turkish. Turkish towels were very famous due to their strength and longevity. Still to this day a towel made on an old-style shuttle loom is many times stronger and longer lasting than any factory towel on the market.
