The RIVER Turkish towel is hand-woven by local artisans in Turkey using 100% cotton threads, following the authentic traditional technique.
RIVER towels measure 76x37 inches excluding the tassels.
Turkish towels (or peshtemals) have been used for centuries in hammams, the traditional Turkish baths, where bathing is a slow, relaxing ritual rather than a quick, daily need. The art of hand-weaving Turkish towels has evolved over the years to make the perfect hammam companion; Turkish towels
are very absorbent,
are lightweight and easy to carry,
dry quickly even in humid environments and always smell fresh
are naturally made and stylish,
are perfect for everyday use.
RIVER can also be used as a shawl, a scarf, a throw or a blanket.
Since it is compact and dries very quickly you can bring your towel to the beach, the pool, the spa, your yoga class.
