SELMA Turkish Towel


1 review

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!

Lengthwise, SELMA features black stripes. While the background seems like it is a solid beige, if you look closely you'll see thin horizontal orange and light gray stripes. 

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.

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.

Seems to be nice quality and well-made

I purchased two regular towels and one waffle-weave towel. The waffle-weave towel feels plusher and softer than the regular towels. The regular towels fold up very small, which is perfect if you anticipate traveling with it. The waffle-weave towel also folds up smaller than a conventional bath towel, but not as compact as the regular Turkish towel. Both types of towels are very absorbent and dry quickly, although the regular towels seem to dry faster. I soaked my towels in cold water overnight before using them, and there didn't seem to be much dye leaking from even the bright coral towels.
I also had a very nice exchange with someone from the company who reached out to make sure I knew that they were expecting shipping delays.
I would definitely buy these towels from this company again.
