Wood Print 1 Peshtemal 100x180

Generously Large Hand Woven towels from Anatolia, Turkey.

These flat weave peshtemals have been hand woven on ancient looms, using 100% Certified Organic First quality combed cotton. These ecru towels are hand printed in black according to traditional design, then finished with an ecru twisted cord. Soft, light weight and fast drying, this Peshtemal offers practicality and ease whilst providing a strong aesthetic.

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.
