When the Turkish towel first caught my eye a few years ago, I was instantly attracted to the pattern; a random stripe in white + grey. Visually appealing + soft to the touch. I then learned how incredibly absorbent these towels are + a staple in Turkish bath traditions, dating back centuries.
Turkish towels (also called Peshtemal or Fouta) are made of premium Turkish cotton, linen or bamboo. They are highly-absorbent, fast drying + soft. They have a thin profile but measure 39" x 70" making them easy to store when folded or rolled.
The use of these towels is endless:
+ Replacement of a traditional bath towel - as mentioned previously in this post, highly-absorbent, but not only that, they are space saving due to their thin profile! These beauties fold up to be half the size of a fluffy-towel.
+ Beach towel
+ Table cloth - this may sound strange, but put one of these towels over a picnic table the next time you are at the beach!
+ Beach cover-up
+ Blanket- use them as a blanket at the beach, at home, or while you are travelling. I take mine on the plane + wrap up in it when I get cold. It fits perfectly in my carry-on.
