Peshtemal Double Layer Bath Towel Blue & Grey

48 AUD

Double Layer Peshtemal 100x180

Generously Large Hand Woven towels from Anatolia, Turkey.

Blue one side, grey the other. 

These double layer, flat weave peshtemals have been hand woven on ancient looms, using 100% Certified Organic First quality combed cotton. The unusual double layer achieves dual colour and extra absorbency, finished with a double colour hand twisted cord fringe. Soft, light weight and fast drying, this Peshtemal offers practicality and ease whilst providing a contemporary, luxurious aesthetic to the bathroom.

The derivation of the towel is commonly associated with Turkey in the 17th century. These Turkish towels began as a flat, woven piece of cotton or linen called a pestamal. Large enough to wrap around the body, pestamal were originally used in the Hammam bath as they were highly absorbent and fast drying, folding away to almost nothing.

Wash before use with like colours.

To ensure towels stay on optimum condition, machine wash, gentle cycle, cold or warm up to 30 degrees, using mild detergent without bleaching agent. Avoid fabric softeners which will reduce absorbency. Line drying is recommended, otherwise cool tumble dry. Small imperfections may occur and are part of the hand woven character and beauty. Should a pulled thread occur, simply cut the thread off.
