WHAT'S A PESHTEMAL?

A peshtemal (also spelled peshtamal, pestamal or pestemal; from Turkish: peştamal) is a traditional Turkish towel used in Turkish baths. It is also used to indicate which region people are from and is a part of a deep cultural tradition. There are many kinds of peshtemal, with different styles and colors in different areas of Turkey.

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. While traditional Turkish peshtemals are usually made of 100% Turkish cotton and hand-weaved on manual looms, there are also cotton/bamboo and cotton/viscone blend peshtemals, either hand-weaved or machine-weaved.

A peshtemal is not just a mere towel but it’s also a pretty fashionable accessory to wear! On the right are a few ways to wear a peshtemal – just to give an idea and many more other ways for you to discover…
