This is our Defne Turkish towel. Made from 100% Turkish cotton with a textured weave combining thick and thin stripes. Woven by artisans on traditional wooden looms, each tassel is carefully twisted and knotted by hand. Peshtemals or hammam towels as they are known in Turkey, are great for the home or holidays. Defne is super absorbent, quick drying, lightweight and easy to pack, and they are perfect for travelling, and for taking to the beach or the gym. The beautifully soft cotton also makes it a perfect baby blanket or a wrap or shawl for those cold winter days. It’s even big enough to use as a throw for your sofa.
So how do our customers use the Defne peshtemal?
The Defne turkish peshtemal has become a firm favourite with our customers wanting a big wrap around scarf or shawl. Its beautiful textured cotton and generous length makes it perfect for wrapping around ....and then wrapping around again! The fun begins in deciding how to wear it .... should I fold it, loop it once or twice, tie it, let it hang loose, or go for the classic pull through?

Because our Turkish towels are hand woven you may occasionally find tiny thread pulls and knots in the fabric. This is because during the weaving process, threads sometimes catch in the loom and the weavers simply snip the loop and then either push the loose threads back into the weave or knot them up. At Pazaar we think this all adds to the character and uniqueness of each of our peshtemal….no one peshtemal is the same as the other. We endeavour to check all our products before we send them out to customers, but very occasionally a little knot or pulled thread will slip by us. If this happens and you want to return or exchange your peshtemal this is absolutely fine. Please read through the Pazaar Returns Guidance here and we will be more than happy to exchange your peshtemal.
