Besides being wonderfully soft, stylish, and versatile, Peshtemal hammam towels has gone from being just towels too so much more!
So, what exactly is a Peshtemal and how can you use it?
A Peshtemal, also known as Fouta, is a turkish towel made from Turkish cotton (ours from the Aegean region) which is a premium cotton that has extra long fibers -meaning fewer joins when spinning the yarn.
Cotton with extra long fiber and fewer joins gives stronger and smoother cotton threads. The cotton is lightweight, compact, highly absorbent and quick drying just to mention some of the benefits. Its versatility makes it a great product for home and travel.
Here, I use my Peshtemal no.6 as a scarf.
Having the perfect balance between absorbency and quick dry, Turkish cotton is the best choice between ordinary terry towels or other more commonly known cotton such as Egyptian cotton (that can have too much absorbency), Peshtemal dries fast and is lightweight.
