Turkish towels for the ultimate luxury

Turkish towels are a full-bodied woven towels that have been used for centuries in Turkish baths. Sometimes called Peshtemel, Hammam or Fouta towels, Turkish towels are lightweight, absorbent and made from a quick-drying premium cotton that only gets better with time.

Towel from Turkey

Like Egypt, Turkey is known for producing some of the highest quality cotton that the world has seen. Turkish cotton towels, known as Turkish towels, are highly absorbent, dry out completely in a short time, and are lightweight and thin. In fact, they are so versatile that they are often used as beach towels, bathroom towels, sarongs, scarves, wraps or even tablecloths. The premium Turkish cloth is made with extra long cotton fibres, which means that there are fewer joins in the fabric, resulting in smoother and stronger threads. They are durable and stain-resistant, and over time, the cloth actually improves with every wash.

Practicalities of Turkish towels

Turkish towels are lighter, stronger, more durable, and when you fold them all up to stack in your cupboard, they are thinner and take up less space. They come in lots of vibrant colours or more elegant, muted tones, so they go with any bathroom. They are incredibly versatile as they can also be used as scarves or wraps.

Turkish towels are less absorbent than Egyptian towels. Wait - doesn't that mean they're less effective? Actually, in humid environments (like a bathroom), a highly absorbent towel can soak the moisture from the air and get wet without use. Also, they remain wet for a long time after a shower. However, Turkish towels are lightweight and soft, providing the perfect level of absorbency.

Woven Turkish towels

Turkish towels are perfect for travelling because they are more lightweight and are able to fit into your suitcase easily. They double as a beach towel or bathroom towel, and as a sarong or wrap, which makes them perfectly wearable and dynamic. Look for handwoven towels, made in Turkey, on a loom. That way, you can be assured of the highest quality, which will improve with every wash.
