What are Turkish Towels?
Turkish towels are sometimes called Peshtemal, Hammam, or Fouta. They originated in Turkey and were a tradition when having a "Turkish" bath. These towels are made from high quality cotton and weaved on tradition looms, using various colours and thickness. Due to the fine weave they are made to be thin and lightweight however, highly absorbent wicking water away from the body. This also means they dry super fast.
