We are proud to work with a small community of weavers in the southeastern region of Turkey. Our unique towel ranges are ethically and sustainably made in small batches, each design being unique to a particular artisan, slowly weaving on a traditional shuttle loom. Our designs, though similar, change frequently to protect the uniqueness of our product.
We help revive the beautiful Turkish craftsmanship of hand looming on traditional wooden shuttle-looms and each purchase helps support the livelihood of these artisans and their communities.
This size towel has a seamed rather selvedge edge. This is because, due to its smaller size, two are made together on one loom. The finished piece is cut and seamed down the middle. This leaves only one outer selvedge edge; for the sake of symmetry, we seam this side too.
Our towels are designed for maximum softness, strength and absorbency. Due to their organic and untreated nature, they will last for decades and become softer and more absorbent with each wash if treated with the right care (see Product Care).
