Today, Turkish towels are fast becoming a trend all over the world. It is all due to its coziness, lightness, softness, and high absorbency. All these features have made people gradually shift to Turkish towels rather than everyday terry towels. Turkish towels are considered to be very durable since they are made from distinctive Turkish cotton.
Turkish towels are also known as Peshtemal or Hammam towels. In Turkey, they are typically hand-woven on looms and have for centuries been part of the rich traditional Turkish Baths called Hammams. This cotton is woven with longer than normal terry-cloth staple fibers, making the fabric tougher, smoother, and more absorbent.
Even though your Peshtemal towels are thin and lightweight, with their speed to absorb water and also their ability to get dry quickly, they will amaze you. What's even better is that with washing & wearing, their absorbency only increases in time. Peshtemals only get better with time, as opposed to fluffy towels where piles lose their volume and vibrancy after a few washes.
