Derya & Fotis
We live in Brooklyn, but grew up surrounded by the traditional ethnic art of the Mediterranean.
We spent months traveling around the villages and towns of Turkey in order to find the most authentic local artisan families, who run high-quality, eco-friendly and ethical productions.
With their traditional looming techniques and our garment and pattern design, we are happy to be able to introduce the world to these unique items. In the age of robots and machines, we are proud to be bringing thousands years old authenticity from the hands of the masters to yours.
What is a Turkish towel?
Turkish towels (or peshtemals) have been used for centuries in hammams, which are traditional Turkish bathhouses. They are very absorbent, lightweight and easy to carry, dry quickly and always smell fresh, making them perfect for everyday use.
Apart from a great towel, many people use them as a shawl, a scarf, a throw or a blanket.
Their compact size and quick drying time make them perfect for the bathroom, the beach, the spa, your yoga or Pilates class, home décor or a picnic.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Thumbs up! - Jennifer
... I absolutely love everything about this towel. The way it looks hanging in my bathroom. The way it dries after a long shower. Even the way I feel walking around the house all wrapped up in it. This may be the first Turkish towel I have purchased, but it will not be the last! Product quality is great, and customer service was just as amazing.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Wonderfully soft and versatile! - Niki
I bought one of these for myself and three others as gifts for my friends and family and everyone was so excited! They are so soft and can mix and match with an outfit or swimwear easily. Each kaftan is very high quality with its own unique features. Highly recommend!!
