Must Have Turkish Style Towels

We call our Turkish style Hamman towel “the everyday towel”.  It is a beautifully handwoven textile with multiple purposes!

Handwoven with Superior Cotton

With its durable and light-weight design, Turkish towels make for the most versatile of textiles.

Also known as "fouta" (the word for towels in Tunisia) or "pestemal" (the word for towel in Turkish), Turkish towels were originally used in Turkish bathhouses (hammams) back in the 17th century.

Over the years, these towel designs have come to be known for their countless uses.

From stepping out of the shower to lounging in the sun, your Hamman towel is a superior choice to any regular cotton alternative because of its fibrous integrity.

Its long fibres make your Hamman towel quick-drying and highly absorptive. These handwoven, artisan-made towels are also made to last.

So you can feel confident that when it comes to your home décor, you’ve chosen a long-lasting and durable staple useful for all seasons.

With their simple yet stylish design, Hamman towels have many uses.  How can you make the most of your Hamman towel?

Towel (of course)

Larger than a typical bath towel, Hamman towels are generously sized to fully wrap around your body. They’re the perfect fit for right after the shower or hopping out of the pool.

Yoga Mat/Blanket

 The durability of the fabric, and its unique ability to ‘wick away’ dirt and liquid (like sweat!), make Hamman towels a wonderful alternative to your traditional yoga mat.

At The Beach

 Easily used both indoors and outdoors, cotton repels grass and sand. This “wicking away” feature makes Hamman towels the perfect portable picnic blanket and accessory for a day at the beach, or an afternoon in the park.

As a Scarf

Made with 100% natural materials, our Hamman towels are great chic alternatives to your average wool scarf. Soft and gentle on the skin, cotton is perfect for those with wool sensitivities.

Ditch those scratchy woollen fabrics, and create a vibe that is elegant, contemporary, luxe and coastal! Wear your towel as a scarf and dress up even the simplest of outfits.


The soft and luxurious feel of our Hamman towels makes for a perfect throw at the end of your bed, or across the back of your couch. Browse our collection to find the aesthetic that’s right for you and add a touch of design to your space!


Your Hamman Towel is an On-The-Road Multi-Purpose Fabric.  Travel and storage-friendly, Hamman towels are compact and lightweight. 

But did you know that they’re also naturally antibacterial? That means no more musty smell, and your towels will dry 30% faster than those manufactured from regular cotton.
You can roll them up to fit easily in a closet, suitcase, carry on, gym bag, backpack, tote, and more.

More than a towel, this traditional, stylish textile has multi tasking wrapped up!
