What is A Peshtemal Towel?
Peshtemal towels are not your average terry cloth. (However, they absorb just as well.) A fouta or hammam towel is another name for a peshtemal, which is also also spelled pestemal or peshtamal. Peshtemals are big, flat, and soft as velvet. These tightly woven beauties are incredibly robust and durable and have a fashionable handcrafted fringe that makes them chic as well as functional. They were inspired by the bath towels used in fabled Turkish spas.
Peshtemal towels are flat-woven, making them incredibly light and compact, making them the ideal travel companion. Peshtemals roll up easily and pack nicely, making them the perfect travel companion.
They are also incredibly adaptable. They make fantastic bathroom towels, of course. However, you may use your peshtemal as a wrap at the beach or at the pool just as readily. Along the beaches in St. Tropez and Cannes, numerous celebrities have been photographed sporting one (think Jennifer Aniston, Steven Spielberg, Robert De Niro and Demi Moore). For a stylish cover-up, they can be wrapped around the body like a sarong or pareo. It feels wonderful against your skin and is light and airy.
On a chilly summer evening, peshtemal towels also look fantastic draped over the shoulders. Additionally, they work well as household textiles like picnic blankets, sofa wraps, and table runners.
