It has a rustic feel to it, with hand-knotted tassels on the short ends and unfinished threads on the long - the perfect weight and softness to cozy up under. Use as a large throw, coverlet for your bed, or even party beach blanket. Check out the peshtemal size as well.

Located inland from the Northern Aegean coastline, Pergamum was a powerful and wealthy city. Its acropolis as at the top of a mountain, giving the rulers of the day a 360 degree view of any approaching threats. It is said that parchment was first made here and named after the city. Today, its ruins include temples, a gym, and an impressive amphitheater built into the side of a mountain.
