What is a Pestemal?

A pestemal is the authentic Turkish bath towel. These lightweight, flat-woven towels originate from the steamy Turkish bath where a thick towel just wouldn't do.  

They are lightweight and extremely absorbent, making them a practical, earth-friendly towel for the modern home.

What we love about a pestemal:

quick-drying + absorbent

made from natural fibers

easy care with machine wash and dry

made by artisan families in Turkey

Our approach is simple

We connect directly with talented artisans in Turkey and the Middle East who value tradition and insist on quality.  

Our values are genuine.
Fair.  Sustainable.  Ethical.  Authentic.  Simple.  Beautiful.
We love everything we sell.

Why Linen?

Linen is a natural fiber made from the flax plant and is considered the strongest of all natural plant-based fibers.

The benefits of our linen towels:

hypoallergenic, antistatic, antibacterial and antifungal 

becomes softer and more absorbent with use

natural fibers do not add to the alarming amount of synthetic microfibers in our environment

handwoven in small batches by artisan weavers in Turkey
