What are Peshtemals? 

Peshtemals are traditional Turkish bath towels. They are made with 100% Turkish cotton, which is characterized by long, soft fibers. Peshtemals are very absorbent, they dry quickly, and they are very lightweight. 

The history of Peshtemal usage dates back to the Ottoman Empire when people used these types of towels to cover themselves up in hammams (Turkish baths). Although the traditional use continues, Peshtemal towels now have found usages in many other situations. Because of their absorbency, people also use them as pool towels and beach towels. Being lightweight, these Turkish bath towels are a preferred travel accessory. 

Moreover, they are thin and so they take up a lot less space than heavier, bulkier towels. You can roll them up for packing, and they still look beautiful. From the bathroom to gym and pool to picnics, Peshtemals can cover you ‘fashionably’ everywhere. You can use them as mats, too. 

Check out How to Use Peshtemals anywhere you are.
