Peshtemal: One Towel to Rule Them All

Peshtemal Beach Towel

Peshtemal towels have been part of our lives for some time, thanks to their absorbance and lightness. Also known as fouta or hammam towel, these tightly woven beauties are incredibly robust and durable and have a fashionable handcrafted fringe that makes them chic as well as functional. They come in various sizes and patterns but they are usually large, flat and soft. They were inspired by the bath towels used in fabled Turkish spas. These towels were traditionally designed for use in the steamiest Turkish baths and have durable qualities that work well in humid environments.

Why prefer Peshtemals?

To begin with, peshtemals are incredibly light and compact, an ideal travel companion. They roll up easily and pack nicely, making them perfect for travel.

Although these towels were designed for use in the Turkish baths, they are also incredibly versatile, they make fantastic bathroom towels, of course. They have high absorbance and dry quickly relatively.

Along the beaches in St. Tropez and Cannes, numerous celebrities have been photographed sporting one. For a stylish cover-up, a peshtemal beach towel can be wrapped around the body like a sarong or pareo. It feels wonderful against your skin and is light and airy.
