Peshtemals, spelled in Turkish peştamal, are thin, very absorbent traditional Turkish towels with more than 600 years of history, linked closely with the traditions of early hammams.
These colorful, soft towels have survived the centuries. Today, the legacy of peştamal meets contemporary design and modern perception. Beyond hammams, the range of eye-catching colors and patterns make them functional throughout everyday life and a perfect travel companion: as picnic blankets or tablecloths, winter scarves, sweat wickers at yoga class or as towels for a long day by the seaside.
Here are two different striped peshtemals, for those looking for a classic design with modern touches.
