ELIO Turkish Towel


37 reviews

Feel the luxury right out of the shower and bring the tradition of a Turkish bathhouse into your home. As is tradition, slow down, don’t rush, and enjoy!

With ELIO 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.

ELIO was inspired by the Aegean sunshine and works great with its sibling, LUNA. The RIVER and TERRA have the same blue if you are looking to mix and match.

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.

The size

Striped Turkish towels measure 76"x37" excluding the fringe.

Waffle weave towels are smaller at 72"x28" 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.

Great customer service and product

I love my towel! It's exactly what I was hoping for! Even more than that, I had an issue with the postal service and the customer service from Anatolico was super helpful, responsive, and supportive. Next time I'm looking for a product they have I will definitely order from them again!

I wish I get get more! These are the best towels and there are colors to suit everyone.
They are absorbent, soft, and dry quickly. Once you try them, you will love them


The fabric, the colors, the design, the workmanship—all great. This is such fun to wear and so comfortable on the skin. I’ve now ordered several items from Anatolico and love them all. Many thanks.
