The Turkish Pestemal towels provided at Simpson Cottage, and for sale on this website, are crafted by traditional weavers in rural Turkey in the same way the towels have been created for generations. We source only local Turkish cotton as it’s the best quality money can buy. The combination of premium quality cotton and traditional weaves and techniques create a product that is of the highest quality, that’s soft, absorbent, unique and lasts. We’re proud to support artisanal craftsmen and women.
BEFORE USE: Soak your cotton pestamel in cold water for 4-6 hours, then drip-dry to 'ignite' absorbency.
EVERYDAY CARE (cotton and linen): Wash at 30-40°C and do not use fabric softener or bleach. Dry at a cool/medium setting in clothes dryer, or naturally air dry. Do not over dry cotton.
