Pestemal Styles

The pestemal is part of a long cultural tradition. This is the towel used in the Turkish bath or "hamam." The pestemal can be used as

  • an excellent spa companion serving as a towel or wrap
  • an after shower or massage cover-up
  • a pareo over a swim suit
  • a practical towel for backpacking and boating
  • a travel towel taking up very little space and air drying very quickly.

All styles are made of 100% cotton produced and woven in Turkey. Dyes are colorfast.

Due to the unique nature of this imported product, Giden Imports reserves the right to change styles and prices based on availability.
