Artisan Profile

Originally used in Turkish baths, Turkish towels, also known as pentamers or hammam towels, have been traditionally hand-loomed in Turkey for centuries. They are made using extra-long, tightly woven fibers which gives them a lightweight, yet highly absorbent quality. The patterns feature vibrant motifs conveying the timeless heritage of the Anatolia culture.

Our Turkish towels are loomed by small, family-owned workshops in the Denizli region of Turkey. Weaving is the main source of income for these skilled weavers, who pride themselves on keeping the looming tradition alive, utilizing manual craftsmanship without compromising quality. They only use eco-friendly, OEKO-TEX certified, 100% natural fibers such as cotton and bamboo, and colors are achieved through non-harmful dyes. Tassels are hand-knotted by women in their homes.
