6 Reasons Why Turkish Peshtemal Are the Most Versatile Towels

Curious as to why turkish peshtemal have the reputation of being the most versatile cotton towels on the market? Here are a few of the most popular uses:

1. Travel

  • 1/3 the weight of a typical bath towel & takes up 1/3 of the space in your bag
  • Dries quicker than a normal towel, so you'll never have to pack a soggy towel again
  • Striking & vibrant colors make it a great beach accessory. Plus it's larger than a typical beach towel, while still remaining lighter & more compact.

2. Bath

  • Roll them up and store them in an open linen shelf
  • They are absorbent and dry much faster than standard terry cloth towels
  • Use them as your daily towel, impress guests with the striking design

3. Beach

  • No more sandy & soggy beach towels... fast drying & they pick up less sand than standard towels
  • Wear it as a sarong, scarf, skirt for walking along the beach/pool
  • Striking & vibrant colors make it a great beach accessory

4. Baby

  • Wrap your bundle of joy up, our towels are made from 100% natural & breathable cotton
  • Sling your baby, use it as a change mat or a light blanket

5. Washing and Care

  • Machine wash warm, up to 100° F (40° C)
  • Tumble dry cool to low heat
  • Feel free to dry clean, just avoid dry cleaners that use trichloroethylene
  • Iron on medium setting 300° F (150° C) and feel free to use the steam setting
  • Don't worry about pulled threads! Our towels are woven, and won't unravel. Just cut off any pulled threads that might appear with a pair of scissors
