Artisan Turkish towel with fringes, cotton

Only 3 left in stock

Peshtemal & peshkir towels, multipurpose hand-loomed towels, are the most important pieces of the Turkish bath (hammam) ritual.

What is the difference between a fouta and a peshtemal? Peshtemal is from Turkey whereas fouta is mostly from Tunisia. They serve the same purpose but peshtemal is made of Turkish cotton which is a premium type of cotton with long fibers that opens up with use and becomes more absorbent over time. 

Peshtemal's high absorbency and lightweight provide a better alternative to terry towels since it dries faster and is easier to wrap around. The smaller size of a Turkish peshtemal towel is called a peshkir towel and is equivalent in size to a regular hand towel.
