Some facts about Turkish towels


1- Towels were first invented in Bursa, Turkey, back in the 17th century. They were used in Turkish baths due to their high-absorbent ability and full length, making them easy to wrap around the body quickly. Made with finely loomed Turkish cotton or linen, Turkish towels are among the most famous brands of towels, for generations.

2- Weavers invented different techniques for Peshtemal towels and the towels known as 'havly' at the beginning are now known as 'havlu', which is the Turkish word for towels. These towels were handwoven, which limited their manufacturing to 3 or 4 towels a day.

3- Turkey is known for producing some of the highest quality cotton products in the world and the towels are as absorbent as traditional towels but take up less space and quickly drying.

4- Turkish towels sometimes called Peshtemal, or Fouta towels–are made from Turkish 100% cotton that has extra-long fibers. Using longer fiber cotton means fewer joins, which results in stronger and smoother cotton threads. Because of this unique material, Turkish towels are known to become even softer, and more absorbent with consecutive washings.
