There is a lot of Turkish tradition behind a hammam towel, but here too we love it very much. These two we find especially beautiful!
A hammam towel is a handwoven, feather-light cotton towel, originally from Turkey and known there under the name Pestemal . The special weaving technique is passed on from generation to generation. Traditionally, hammam towels are made on special looms and knotted by hand. Meanwhile, the hammam towel has long since left the Turkish steam baths, established itself as an it-piece and also enjoys great popularity with stars in Malibu and Saint-Tropez.
They can be so beautiful
Although hammam towels have a predominantly functional background and are primarily used as towels, but who simply needs something to dry off, will hardly resort to such a great, elaborately manufactured and historic product . So the optics should suit both you and the decor of your bathroom.
The great thing about a hammam towel is that it gets more beautiful with age . Here are two beautiful models with tasteful design.
