This beautiful Sawyer Turkish Towel is fair trade/ethically handcrafted by skilled artisans in Turkey. It is considered a Hamman Pestemel and like all Pestemels are woven by hand using time honored traditions. The artist uses the finest natural cotton and bamboo fibers on a wooden loom. Traditional Towels are Terry Cloth and are a loop weave, whereas Turkish Towels are crafted using a flat weave technique. The resulting fabric is light weight, quick drying and easy to pack...the perfect companion for all your adventures!
Besides the obvious uses (beach towel, bath towel, hair towel etc.) Turkish towels are also the perfect light shawl or blanket for traveling, picnic blanket, decorative throw, wall tapestry, scarf... The possibilities are endless!
