A peshtemal, boasting a history of nearly six hundred years in Anatolia, is often referred to as a fouta or hammam. It is a multi-purpose hand loomed fabric used as a traditional Turkish bath towel. It can also be used as a luxurious sarong, shawl, blanket, tablecloth, or a throw for your bed or sofa.
Peshtemals are large, flat and velvety soft. … Because peshtemal towels are flat-woven, they’re extremely light and become very compact when folded. (great for those with limited linen closet space). You can easily carry a peshtemal towel in your bag, therefore, it is very convenient as a sports towel, pool towel, spa towel, or picnic blanket. Despite the flat nature of this fiber, it is highly absorbent (much more absorbent than a terry cloth towel) and dries in a flash.
As an extra bonus is due to its extra long cotton fibers, with proper care, a peshtemal gets softer and softer with each washing.
