Double Knit Peshtemal Almond Green 100x180

Luxurious and generously large Hand Woven towels from Anatolia, Turkey. 

These double layer, knit weave peshtemals have been hand woven on ancient looms, using 100% Certified Organic First quality combed cotton. The unusual double layer knit achieves a particularly soft look whilst maintaining absorbency, finished with a short white hand twisted 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.

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. Small imperfections may occur and are part of the hand woven character and beauty. Should a pulled thread occur, simply cut the thread off.
