That’s a towel? We get that question a lot at shows. Our Turkish towels are so soft and beautiful that people assume they are a scarf or a blanket. While these towels are tremendously absorbent and the most luxurious towels you’ll find, they can certainly be used as a scarf or blanket…or cover-up, sarong, yoga mat, etc. And the towels are extra large, but fold down compactly, making them ideal for packing in your suitcase to use however you need it when traveling. Known as peshtemal, these traditional towels have been made in Turkey for hundreds of years, it’s the exceptional mix of Turkish cotton and natural bamboo that elevate these to a whole new level of luxury, and that each of our towels is still loomed by hand.
Here are a few favorite photos where we are using our towels as a scarf:
