BOSPHORUS ~ Authentic Turkish

"Peshtemal", pestamal, Turkish hamam towel, Turkish bath towel... whatever name is given to it, pesthemal has been used for centuries.

It is handwoven with 100% cotton, linen or bamboo yarns.

Today it has replaced the traditional towel perfectly with its compact, highly absorbent, lightweight and versatile nature.

What was designed for the traditional Ottoman hamam is now being commonly used at homes, beaches, spas or gyms, in baby care and makes an excellent decorative item as a throw, table cloth or anything else you can imagine.

Each item you'll find in this shop are all manufactured in Turkey.
