The absolute classic Turkish peshtemal, updated! This stripe pattern is the OG of all Turkish towels and what you see in the hamams (Turkish baths). While the originals have a wider weave and stiff texture that softens over time, our Lygos line is pre-washed and already soft. It also has a tighter weave than the classic for maximum absorbency. Use them as you would any towel - bath, hand, kitchen, beach, pool and so on but don't forget their many additional uses. We love using them as a scarf, shawl, and picnic blanket.

Made from 100% hand-loomed Turkish cotton in the inner Aegean region of Denizli.
