Pestemal (pesh-te-mahl) n.
The traditional flat-woven towel used in the legendary Turkish bath. Famous for its absorbency and softness, it is perfectly suited for everyday use. It is hand-loomed of 100% Turkish cotton with hand-tied fringe.
Requires less laundering, less space and less drying time than a typical terrycloth towel.
Gentle laundering is best. Machine wash in warm or cold water with like colors. Tumble dry on low or line dry. Please do not use bleach, harsh detergents, dryer sheets or high heat. Turkish cotton gets softer and more absorbent with use. Wash before first use.
