Wash in cold water, max 30°C
Do not use fabric softeners or bleach. -Fabric softeners coat the towel fibers so their absorbency is reduced, therefore, it's important that you don't use fabric softeners when washing your Turkish towel.
Air dry, they dry up quickly. But if you are in a hurry, tumble drying at the lowest heat setting is recommended.
Every month or so, add a cup of white vinegar in the rinse cycle in your washing machine load whilst washing. This removes the residue that collects at the beach and maintains the beauty and softness of the towel.
Peshtemal is a lightweight, compact and extremely absorbent fabric that dries very fast. That’s why the most popular use of it is to enjoy at the beaches or at baths or spas.
Today it is not only used as a towel, but also as beachwear, a table cover, throw, scarf, or as a decorative accessory at home.
This multipurpose fabric is hand loomed and flat-woven with hand-tied fringes using the same technique for over 600 years. Peshtemal has a lot of human touch during the looming process and that’s what makes it so special.
