This is our beautiful Dokuma peshtemal made from 100% Turkish cotton. With its intricate basket weave design, we've named it 'Dokuma' which means 'woven' in Turkish. Woven by artisans on semi-automatic looms, the delicate pattern in the weave creates a stunning texture to this peshtemal. Each tassel is carefully twisted and knotted by hand.
Traditional Turkish textile design at its best, Dokuma turkish towels are super absorbent, quick drying and come in a range colours; soft pastel lilac, baby blue and grey through to vivid orange, pink and turquoise. The range of colours make them the perfect bathroom accessory. The beautifully soft cotton also makes them the perfect beach towel, baby blanket or a great wrap or shawl for those chilly evenings. It's even big enough to use as a throw for your armchair or bed.
So, who is our Dokuma peshtemal weaving partner?
Our Dokuma peshtemals are sourced by our weaving partner Saadet. They are woven by her team of artisan weavers in Buldan in the Aegean region of Turkey. Buldan is legendary in Turkey for its cotton growing and artisan weaving industry. It is believed that the weaving culture there is 7000 years old. Its woven textiles are long lasting due to the strongly spun quality cotton threads. On our first peshtemal shopping trip to Buldan we were shown how the cotton threads were spun and dyed ready for weaving the famous Turkish peshtemal.

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.
