The idea of Urban Joi was founded in the summer of 2017 by us, Merih and Volkan, in the heart of Istanbul, Taksim. Dedicated and inspired by our heritage, turkish traditions, seaside lifestyle and with our passion for exploring the world and discover sustainable, high quality, versatile products, we decided to create a marketplace that will grow slowly and dynamically, bringing you carefully curated goods that will empower your life. Each of our product is made with natural materials by passionate artisans, who show care and attention to details and quality.
re-inventing iconic and traditionally loomed Peshtemal
Our core is business is to curate the best goods from Turkey and our bestseller is Peshtemal, a turkish hammam towel re-invented with gorgeous design and high quality cotton from the are of Aegean. Made of 100% durable, Turkish cotton
All our Peshtemal are versatile enough to be used as highly absorbent and quick dry bath towels, as lightweight and compact beach towel, as a stylish sarong/pareo or as a home interior textile such as throw, chair cover, bed blanket. Me, I use my Peshtemal as a scarf as well.
social corporate responsibility
We only produce and market Peshtemal in bamboo and turkish cotton, and we select our manufacturers carefully. We are only working with manufacturers that have the right conditions and terms for their employee. For us, corporate social responsibility is one of our ground stones, and we´re putting as much effort on customer service as on choosing the right partners.
Treat your Peshtemal Hamam Towel with love and it will last you a lifetime! For best care machine-wash cold with similar colors on a gentle cycle (low temperature). Wash before use. Avoid the use of bleach, and tumble dry on low to keep your towels soft and absorbent.
