PELE Turkish Towel
PELE's simple orange, red, gray and white stripes were inspired by a trip we took to Hawaii. In the Hawaiian religion, Pele (pronounced [ˈpɛlɛ]), is the goddess of volcanoes and fire and the creator of the Hawaiian Islands.
With PELE you'll experience an absorbent, yet lightweight and quick-drying towel. Flat-woven as they are, Turkish towels are compact and always smell fresh, even in the most humid environments.
Enjoy them at home right out of the shower, or on the beach where the sand doesn't stick. They pack light for the pool or your yoga class and they can always double as a shawl, a scarf, a throw, or a blanket.
If you are looking to mix and match towels, the PELE towel features the same gray color as the GRAY. Derya designed them with that in mind.
What it's made of
100% long staple cotton. Vegan and naturally hypoallergenic.
Our Mauna, Kai, Sky, and Terra are a 85% cotton - 15% linen blend.
How it's made
Our towels are loomed in Turkey, in Derya's hometown close to Izmir, by local artisans that follow the authentic traditional technique.
We design all our textile patterns ourselves, and we work with our makers directly to ensure that we use only the best quality long-staple cotton and linen in our fabrics.
Fringes are tied by hand one by one. The dyes we use for our threads are all OEKO-TEX certified for chemical safety.
Striped Turkish towels measure 76"x37" excluding the fringe.
Waffle weave towels are slightly smaller at 72"x32" excluding the fringe.
Hand or Kitchen towels are 37"x18" and don't have a fringe.
Machine wash warm or cold with similar colors. We recommend not using fabric softener in your wash. Fabric softener smells great but actually coats the fibers making them less absorbent. No bleach and try not to mix the wash with items that have zippers or hooks as they might get tangled in the fringes.
