Peshtemal towels are a Turkish towel that historically have been used as a bath towel in spas and hammams because of its highly absorbent and quick drying weave. These days, they’re a very popular, classier alternative to your average pool or beach towel. Large and soft to the touch, the towel’s flat, tightly woven fabrics reduce the towel’s weight, making them easy to carry and store in your travel bag. Multiple washes makes the peshtemal towel even softer without degrading its tough and durable strength. One of the towel’s defining features is its versatility: their tight weaving blocks out dirt and sand, which comes in handy when you want to practice yoga on the beach. Their elegant design with handcrafted fringes makes them a stylish yet practical fashion accessory as a sarong at the pool or beach.
