Seray Pestemal, Turkish Hammam Bath Towels, very high thread count
A Pestemal (also spelled Peshtamal, Pestamal or Peshtemal; from Turkish: peştamal) is a traditional Turkish towel used in Turkish Baths, Hammams. The Pestemal was originally designed to help individual bathers maintain their privacy. A staple of the Ottoman Hammam culture, dating back hundreds of years.
It is not just a wonderful bath towel due to its high absorbency, the Pestemal dries faster than its thicker conventional counterparts.
Handmade on manually operated looms in Anatolia by artisan weaver families, 100% hand dyed Turkish Cotton, no mass production, no artificial fibres, very high quality, the Seray Pestemal is very lightweight & ultra soft due to its very high thread count.
Only 6-8 of these luxurious Seray towels are produced per day!

The Pestemal fabric is made of 100% Turkish cotton produced on manually operated looms in Anatolia to a 600-year-old tradition.
We are sure you will be pleased to know that they are not mass produced and do not contain any artificial fibre.
The yarns get hand dyed a year prior to being woven and the artisans have full reign over the design and colour of their product.
