What is Peshtemal ?
A peshtemal (also spelled peshtamal, pestamal or pestemal; from Turkish: pestamal) is a Turkish towel traditionally used in the Turkish baths for centuries. It is also used to specify which region people are from and is a part of a deep cultural tradition. There are many kinds of peshtemal, with different styles and colors for different local areas in Turkey. It absorbs water as fast as a traditional towel, dries very quickly, takes up less space, is easy to carry and is therefore used as an alternative to the towel in bathrooms, pools, spas, beaches, sport facilities and for baby care. Its fabric (for most peshtemals) is made of 100% cotton produced in manually operated looms in Turkey.
