What are Turkish Towels?

A Turkish towel is a traditional towel commonly worn in the Turkish baths. It is also used to specify which region people are from and is a part of a deep cultural tradition. Often referred to as a pestamal or peshtemal, there are many kinds with different styles and colours associated within each local area of Turkey.

Sarosha’s Turkish towels absorb water as fast as a towel, dry very quickly, take up minimal space and are very easy to carry. They can be used as an alternative to a standard bath towel in bathrooms, and can be used in a variety of ways, such as a beach towel, spa towel, sports towel or baby wrap.

Our Turkish bath towels are made using the best quality local fabrics in Turkey. All of our peshtemel sarongs are made using 100% Turkish cotton and linen. Peshtemal sarongs become softer and more absorbent the more they are used and washed.

We only source our Turkish towels from ethically run, family operated businesses, making sure that your purchases are supporting local producers of traditional Turkish towels.
