A pestemal is a traditional Turkish towel. Traditional Turkish towels are made of 100% cotton and get softer with each wash. Although thin, Turkish towels are super absorbent. Thin cotton uses less resources for washing, drying, and storing. These hand-made and hand-dyed towels are made by villagers. Pair with our corresponding hand towels for a beautiful look. The generous size of 39 X 71 inches provides for nice coverage when stepping out of the bath or shower.
