Turkish Towels (also called the Peshtemal) were originally used in Anatolia, Turkey where the fabric was used to cover the body in the traditional bath called hammam. With time, they evolved out of their drab image as a simple bath accessory and became an essential part of the social lives of people in Turkey – thanks to the Ottoman clan of weavers.
No one is ready to head to the beach without the essentials: sunscreen or tanning oil, a good pair of sunglasses, and an amazing towel. However, not all these things are easy to get hold of. You probably find yourself reaching into the closet for a towel, getting to the beach to spread out, and boom, the towel is too rough. Or perhaps the towel isn’t all that flattering or doesn’t match your carefully selected swimsuit. Or maybe the towel isn’t personalised in any way. It is just a plain ordinary towel.
