About

My family is from Aydın in the Eagean region of Turkey where hand made towels are made. We have a small family business still running in Aydın. All towels are hand crafted by my mother and father. I help them with some items too.

These towels are called Turkish towels or Pesthemals. A peshtamal is a Turkish traditional towel used in the Turkish baths. They are soft and naturally made.

The peshtamal absorbs water as fast as a towel, dries very quickly, takes up less space and easy to carry and is therefore used as an alternative to the towel in bathrooms, pools, spas, beaches, sport facilities and for baby care. The peshtamal fabric is made of 100% cotton produced in hand-woven looms in Turkey.
You can also use them for sun bathing, as table cloth, after bath or like a beach dress.

In Western Europe, the 'Turkish bath' as a method of cleansing and relaxation became popular during the Victorian era.

A person taking a Turkish bath first relaxes in a room (known as the warm room) that is heated by a continuous flow of hot, dry air allowing the bather to perspire freely. Bathers may then move to an even hotter room (known as the hot room) before splashing themselves with cold water. After performing a full body wash and receiving a massage, bathers finally retire to the cooling-room for a period of relaxation.
