Why should I choose a peshtemals or turkish towels over a plain terry cloth towel?
It’s like the difference between driving a luxury car or an economy car. Eating at a 3-star Michelin restaurant or a greasy fast-food chain. Shopping at an upscale boutique or a cheap thrift shop. Like… well, ok, you get the point! And yes, peshtemals or turkish towels really are that much better than regular terry cloth towels! But don’t just take our word for it! Let us tell you why.
- Superior Makeup- Peshtemals are made of Turkish Cotton — and Turkish Cotton really is some of the most versatile material in the world. This type of cotton has fibers that are much longer than in other, more basic types of cotton (like terry cloth.) In a towel, the rule of thumb is the longer the fibers, the smoother the feel. Therefore, peshtemals — otherwise known as Turkish towels — are much smoother than their bulkier cotton competitors. And because of their super-thinness – as opposed to the bulkiness of terry cloth towels — they will air dry extremely quickly! Also, Turkish Cotton is often hand-woven on looms in Turkey — unlike terry cloth, which tends to be mass produced and machine made. This special care ensures that Turkish cotton is of much higher quality than terry cloth. We might also add that Turkish Cotton is incredibly durable, which means you are likely to be able to enjoy your new peshtemal for a very long time! And yet another perk — this amazing Turkish Cotton also makes peshtemals far softer than regular cotton towels! And you will find that the more you wash them, the softer they become! This is different from other cotton towels, which start to fall apart and become brittle the more you wash them.
- Better absorbency – To some people, the fact that Turkish Towels are so absorbent comes as a surprise, because the material seems to be so incredibly thin. However, it is a well-known fact that they absorb water better than, for example, the average terry cloth towel. Their secret lies in the longer cotton fibers we described above. Yes, those affect the towel’s absorbency, too! And another bonus… When you hang a peshtemal up to dry, it will dry far more quickly than, say, a terry cloth towel. Therefore, there is less time for bacteria — or even mold – to set in!
- Size – Quite frankly, the size of a peshtemal is just perfect! And, because it’s so much thinner than those other, more bulky cotton towels, it will more easily fit anywhere, whether it be the bathroom or a beach tote. Yet it is still larger than a regular-sized towel, making it completely usable as a bath sheet. Really, what’s not to love!?
- Versatility- Peshtemals will be equally fitting in a smaller space. The traditional appearance of a peshtemal gives it a classic vibe that allows it to stand out anywhere! Also, peshtemals can have many interesting uses — besides just a towel. People online have come up with some really entertaining creative uses for the peshtemal, including: A scarf, a boat towel, a lounge chair cover, curtains, a receiving blanket for new babies, or even a blanket fort for your kids! Hey, it’s always great to think outside the box, right?
