FAQ ABOUT TURKISH TOWELS
Q: What is a Turkish towel (a.k.a peshtemal or hammam towel)?
A Turkish towel, also known as peshtemal or hammam towel, is a particular kind of towel
that is manufactured via looming, where long cotton or bamboo fibers are woven together.
Turkish towels have a long history; popularly used in the Turkish baths since the Ottoman times.
Today, Turkish towels are woven by hand in a traditional waving loom as well as in a factory, and can be used for various reasons.
Only a couple of peshtemals can be produced in a fully traditional waving loom in a day; so handmade Turkish towels
are rare and precious!
Q: What is the difference between a Turkish bath towel and a regular bath towel?
Because of how they are manufactured, Turkish towels are 2-3 times lighter and more durable compared to regular towels.
They dry easily, which keeps them fresh. No more heaviness or bad smell.
These qualities make Turkish towels highly compact and sustainable compared to regular towels.
