Hammam Towels are the traditional flat woven Turkish towels used originally in Turkish Hammams. They come in two sizes; ‘Peshtemal’ is the larger size and ‘Peshkir’ is the name given to the smaller size, used traditionally as hair towels in Turkish Hammams. 

Our Peshtemals and Peshkirs are hand loomed by a small community of weavers in Southern Turkey. We help revive and nurture the art of weaving on traditional shuttle looms, which has been threatened by the popularity of this ‘Turkish towel’ made in mass producing factories. We use only the finest long staple threads  – 100% GOTS Certified Cotton – and non toxic dyes. Designed for beauty and endurance in limited edition colours and designs, these pieces will outlast factory made equivalents by four to five times longer. Our luxurious towels have hand-knotted tassels and a selvedge edge trim, only achievable when loomed by hand. 

The multitude of uses of the flat weave technique means that Peshtemals can be used as throws, towels, scarves, meditation or picnic blankets, and Peshkirs can be used as hand towels, tea towels, table runners, place mats and so much more.
