The Peshtemal, It's Not Just A Towel





Five Uses For Your Peshtemal

 1. The Towel

Well, need I say more...the peshtemal was where the story of the humble towel all began. The indispensable terry towel that we all know and love, was first brought to the UK from Turkey in the 1850’s by the famous towel company W.M Christy & Sons Ltd. Made from 100% Turkish cotton, they have great absorbing and quick drying qualities and get softer with every wash. Once you start using a peshtemal you will never use a traditional towel again.

Bath & Hand Towel...Turkish towels not only look beautiful, they are as absorbent as traditional towels, easy to wash and they dry in a flash compared to traditional towels, so you can say goodbye to damp towels hanging in the bathroom for good.

Beach Towel...The ultimate beach towel. They are lightweight, compact and super absorbent. They dry in a flash compared to traditional towels, so you can say goodbye to heavy, damp sandy towels on the beach. Turkish towels have changed the definition of beach towel. A towel that looks beautiful and can also double as a beach dress or sarong.

Yoga Towel ...These 100% cotton towels are perfect for yoga. Made from natural fibres, they have great absorbing and quick drying qualities and get softer with every wash.

Kids Towel...Children love our Turkish towels. They are colourful, soft, and lightweight not to mention they catch the wind perfectly on the beach, when attempting flight, and they dry in flash compared to traditional towels.
