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 5 colours; Portishead orange, Jubilee aqua, lime, Hampstead green and purple. Also available in a light striped red or Diamond Stripe Teal pattern.
