There’s a reason swimmers all over the world are switching to Hammam towels: they’re robust, durable, soft, light and quick-drying. They’re big (great for changing), but pack up small – great for holidays, multi-swim days and swimming on the way to work days.
They are also versatile: can be used as a van seat cover, picnic blanket, sarong or table cloth. Ideal for bathrooms and guest towels.
Pestemal (pesh-te-mahl) towels are traditionally used in Turkish baths. These towels are hand-loomed, 100% natural cotton and are flat-woven so they are more absorbent, dry faster, and take up less space than regular beach towels.
Available here in lightly striped pale green but also available in other colours and a Diamond Stripe pattern.
