Turkish towels originated during the 7th century A.D. and were predominately used in Turkish and Muslim bathhouses called Hammams.

Each Turkish towel is purposefully loomed to be as absorbent as possible and becomes even more absorbent and soft after a couple of washes!
Accentuate any kitchen or bathroom space with Turkish towels that are not only thoughtfully designed but also made with all natural fibers. Now you can wrap yourself up in these towels and robes feeling good about how they’re made with 100% cotton, how the artisans who made them are paid fair living wages and how you’re supporting a heritage craft that’s been passed down for generations.
