Color coordinates with the hand/hair towel in Aegean ecru

After spending time in Annapolis and Newport we knew we had to do red and blue so these are made especially for our boating friends!  Both Newport and Regatta are 100% organic Turkish cotton, dyed but never bleached so it’s super soft, has a high thread count per inch and nice color saturation. Hand loomed with an ecru background.

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 dryings to reach full absorbency and softness
