We fell in love with hammam towels because they look great and are so versatile - you can use them as a bath towel, beach towel, wrap, scarf, shawl... They're highly absorbent, quick-drying, and very lightweight, making them perfect for home and travel. In our opinion, some of the best hammam towels are Turkish "peshtemals" from the Anatolia region of Turkey, where they've been making them by hand for over 600 years.
Our towels are handcrafted in the town of Denizli from the best 100% Turkish cotton (Izmir style are semi hand-loomed). They're a contemporary take on an age-old tradition, with updated colors and designs that fit any home.
Note: before washing for the first time, true 100% Turkish cotton hammam towels should be soaked in cold water for 12 hours in a large sink or bathtub. This allows the cotton fibers to bloom and expand, ensuring maximum absorbency and softness. After this initial soak, they can be machine washed normally. They will increase in absorbency the more they are used.
