A pestemal (pronounced pesh-te-mahl) is a traditional hammam towel used in the Turkish baths for centuries. This beautiful heirloom linen is handmade from start to finish by a family of weavers. These towels are extremely lightweight, easy to launder and become softer and more absorbent through use. Ideal for travel, they roll up tightly and take up little space in your bag.
We love them as everyday bath towels, beach blankets, and oversized hand towels because they absorb water as fast as terrycloth but dry fives time quicker!
