Loombrand Turkish towels - Artisan made in Turkey

A pestemal or peshtamal is an authentic Turkish towel. They are traditionally made with Turkish cotton using a flat-weave and have a hand-tied fringe.

Turkish cotton is mainly grown in a small region close to the Aegean sea. It is a premium cotton that has extra-long fibers. This longer fiber during the spinning process means there are fewer joins, resulting in stronger and smoother cotton. The cotton becomes softer the more it is washed.


All Loombrand Turkish towel products are sourced from Artisans living in a Turkish village called Babadag. Their ancestors have been making these same products for centuries.
