This is our Tembel lounger. 'Tembel' means lazy in Turkish and seemed a fitting name for our new Pazaar loungewear. Essentially Tembel is a kind of Kaftan, perfect for those lazy, lounging around days and evenings. Made from 100% cotton it is soft, comfortable and loose....perfect for relaxing and unwinding.
For me personally, it's my Saturday morning, "phew, no work today" pottering around the house gown !
Tembel, well it's about ankle length & comes in an array of beautiful colours and stripes. Bold stripy greys, reds and whites and delicate, glittery stripy pinks, reds, purples and greens. We think there will be a colour that's perfect for everyone.
They make the perfect gift for your nearest and dearest....husband, wife, mum, dad, sister or brother.
So who makes our Tembel loungewear?
Our Tembel loungewear is made by Tufanlar, a family run textile business. Based in Kalkan on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, they have been working together since 1986. Each Tembel is individually cut and sewn by Halil Tufan, the master tailor in the family. Halil's wife Emine and daughter Asena run the shops. The latest arrival to the family business are his son Mesut and wife Ayşe who are stepping into new roles to develop and market the Tufanlar family textiles.
