Who uses Turkish towels? Boaters and beach-goers use them. They dry quickly and come in lovely colors. You can use a Turkish towel as a wrap or cover-up after a swim or when you are bored of your sultry summertime wardrobe of shorts and tank tops. They make great gifts for the hard-to-buy-for folks in your life, as well. Boat-warming, wedding gifts, house-warming, any excuse is a good one for a Turkish towel.
Basic information about Turkish towels that you might wish to know: Turkish towels are also called called Peshtemal, Hammam or Fouta towels. They are made from Turkish Cotton, It is a premium cotton that has extra long fibers. Why does that matter? Because using longer fiber cotton means fewer joins, which results in stronger and smoother cotton threads. Because of this feature of the unique Turkish Cotton material, Turkish towels are known to become even softer, fluffier, and more absorbent with each successive washing. How nice! Online or off you will find that most Turkish towels cost between $30-$65.
