A pestemal is a traditional Turkish towel. Traditional Turkish towels are made of 100% cotton and get softer with each wash. Although thin, Turkish towels are super absorbent. Thin cotton uses fewer resources for washing, drying, and storing. These hand-made and hand-dyed towels are made by villagers. Pair with our corresponding hand towels for a beautiful look. The generous size of 39 X 71 inches provides for nice coverage when stepping out of the bath or shower. Strem lined, absorbent, never smell musty because they dry really quickly and every time you wash and dry them in warm/gentle in your washer and dryer, they get thicker and softer each time. Luxury, like you, have never experienced.
