Peshtemal, sauna towel, hammam towel or stole they are called. Pestemals are traditional cotton and / or bamboo fiber wipes often woven in family businesses in Turkey. The gentlemen who visit a hammam are usually wearing them around the hips, while ladies are wrapped around their bodies. Of course, these towels can also be used on the beach, during sports, as a blanket or simply as a decoration. Pestemals are very absorbent and increase their absorbency with each wash. Pestemals are soft and quick-drying.
