Prudence Island

Air Blue

Our new Prudence Island collection, made from 100% organic Turkish cotton with a high thread count for an extraordinarily soft towel. Each one is yard dyed for perfect color saturation. Bath size 39x70. 

Used for centuries in Turkish hamams, or baths, the pestemal (pesh-te-mahl) is the original “Turkish Bath Towel”. They are a soft and smooth, flat woven cloth, made by hand, usually from cotton, finished with fringes. The hand or hair towel size is called a peskir (pesh-kir). 

These towels are known for their eco-friendly properties:

  • Highly absorbent, quick to dry, and will not collect sand
  • Lightweight and compact, fold flat, minimizes storage space
  • Naturally anti-bacterial – will not acquire a musty odor
  • Environmentally friendly – quick to wash and dry, saving energy
  • Some of the weaves may need several washings and drying to reach full absorbency and softness
