The light and very soft Pestemal bath towels (approx. 290 grams) are made of 100% cotton and are a practical companion on the beach. With their size of 180 cm x 100 cm, they are also large enough to serve as a practical base for a picnic, for example.
The pestemals are made by loom in Babadag, Turkey and then knotted by hand. No harmful chemicals are used.The production of a real Pestemal therefore takes significantly longer than in mass production – but these cloths also keep what they promise: they are light, absorbent, quick-drying, robust and colourfast.
Pestemal is a traditional Turkish cloth that was originally used in the oriental steam bath (hammam). Men use it as a loincloth in the hammam, women use it as a kind of dress. Nowadays colored pestemals are often used on the beach as a towel, beach mat or wrap. The light bath towels can also be seen more and more in the sauna.
Made in Turkey under fair conditions! Washable at 30 degrees.
