This authentic assortment of cotton and linen towels come straight from Istanbul. Peshtemals are key elements within the Turkish bath experience, as they are both absorbent and also dry quickly.
Prior to its first use, soak the towels in cold water overnight (to increase their absorption capacity) and hang to dry. After that initial soaking, the towels can be machine-washed at 30-40° C – the towel should get softer with each wash.
Peshtemals can be used on a variety of occasions and have for both inside and out. Bring your pesthemal with you as a beach blanket or a picnic cloth. It can be used as a throw on furniture or even worn as a scarf when you travel to colder climates.
