Versatile Peshtemals

My first peshtemal… 

I bought my first peshtemal years ago and since then it has been my faithful companion on all my journeys. It amazes me again and again with its divine texture, softness, patterns and colors. Holding the tassels and looking at them is a real balm for ones soul. Its versatility in use is incredible. It saved me in countless situations and served me as a cape, a shade, a towel, a scarf,… Over the years of use, it acquired a patina that is unmatched and that makes it even more mine, more personal.



Peshtemals are Turkish towels, otherwise known as hammam towels. In contrast to classic towels, which are made in factories, peshtemals are woven in small ateliers. Master weavers pass down their skills from generation to generation and weaving is the main source of income in those areas.
