Announcement   I am selling hand-loomed traditional Turkish Peshtemal Towels. Peshtemal is a cultural and traditional heritage that has reached today and is still very popular. The materials used are organic and technique is manual. The peshtemal absorbs water as fast as a traditional towel, dries very quickly, takes up less space, is easy to carry and is therefore used as an alternative to the towel in bathrooms, pools, spas, beaches, sport facilities and for baby care.

About

Beach Towels from Traditional Turkish Peshtemals

I had developed an interest for traditional Turkish crafts as a child. My grandfather and father were carpenters so I focused on wood-working. As I got older and started travelling around Anatolia, I discovered the making of peshtemals. The transformation of wool from sheep to such an elegant piece of cloth is amazing. I enjoy the foot-powered loom that has stayed pretty much the same since 17th century. Over the years what started as a hobby has turned into a business.
