Pestemals are traditional Turkish bath towels, originally designed for use in the hammam baths of the Ottoman Empire. Traditionally they are made from cotton, however ours are made from a more sustainable bamboo / cotton mix. We love using bamboo because not only is it better for the environment, it is incredibly soft and durable, not to mention super absorbent (60% more so than cotton!). They dry quickly and fold up small - making them ideal to use as bath towels, for the gym or travel. We’ve sold them as sarongs, baby blankets, beach towels, tablecloths and throws...I’m sure you could find even more uses for them!
