Cotton Turkish pestemal style towel. This type of towel is traditionally worn in the Turkish bath, Moroccan hammam, or sauna. Throughout history this type of Turkish towel was produced by women in the Black Sea and Aegean regions weaving on hand looms. Our pestemals are produced using similar traditional methods. The fine cotton is quick to dry yet very absorbent. Great for use as bath or beach towels. They also work great as wraps or shawls.
