Turkish Towel Use
WHAT ARE TURKISH TOWELS?
Turkish towels are sometimes called Peshtemal, Hammam, or Fouta. They originated in Turkey as a tradition when having a "Turkish" bath. These towels are made from high quality cotton & weaved on tradition looms with various colours and thickness. Due to the fine weave, they are made to be thin and lightweight however, highly absorbent which wicks the water away from the body. This also means they dry super-fast.
WHAT SIZE ARE YOUR TURKISH TOWELS?
So glad you asked about the size! Our towels are 180 cm in length and 100 cm in width. This means you have most of your body lying on a towel. Nothing worse than having your legs hanging off the end of the towel, that's why we have the size that works! How's that for size!!!
WHY BUY A TURKISH TOWEL?
I can't believe this is a legit question.....Where do I start?...Light, compact, they pack up small and just a few of the many reasons why you would purchase a Turkish Towel. They are great for travelling or keeping in the gym bag as they aren't as bulky as a tradition beach or bathroom towel. Because they dry really fast it’s a lot more convenient to have a dry towel all the time. So long wet and musty towels!
WHAT DO YOU DO WITH A TURKISH TOWEL?
Gym Towel, Beach Towel, Sarong, Travel Towel the list is endless. Why not roll it up & use as a pillow? You'll find heaps of uses for your new Turkish Towel. We recently used it as a scarf in the Australian winter.
WHY TURKISH COTTON?
Turkish cotton is ideal for towels, grown in the Aegean region in Turkey its some of the finest cotton around. Not only is it hardier and tough it’s also super soft on the skin & will get softer & more absorbent with each wash cycle. It will also stay fresh if its damp when packing away, not like a normal towel that stays damp.

ARE TURKISH TOWEL CO'S TOWELS ABSORBENT?

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY TOWEL?
We recommend keeping your towel clean at all possible times, you don't need to wash them as much & can roll them up ready for next use.
