Turkish baths, called hammams, can be traced back to the 7th century, and were influenced by Roman and Byzantine bathing traditions, which included towels for drying off. By the 17th century, Ottoman weavers began to apply their deft rug-weaving talent towards embellishing these functional textiles.
Long-staple siro-combed organic Turkish cotton is extremely soft, as well as GOTS and Oeko-Tex certified. It’s woven into a towel of a weighty 700 grams per square meter.
Designed to be mixed and matched, this collection features subtle stripes and a nod to art deco, with a palette of sun-baked terra cotta, sand, and sky.
The Weaving House
Our Istanbul office didn’t rest until they found the perfect partner. Our supplier even built their own facility to invest in high-quality yarn production.
Today, when you want a good-quality towel, you still head to Turkey, where the craft has continued to adapt to modern technologies, and producers continue to refine and innovate their techniques and materials.
