Products / Ultimate OBX Accessory- the Turkish Towel
I was introduced to the Turkish beach towel this Summer and though they are not made in the Outer Banks, in fact they were ordered directly from a woman who hand makes them in Turkey, they are the PERFECT addition to your luggage for your next Outer Banks excursion! These towels are also known as peshtemal bath towels, foutas, pestemals, and hammams. Turkish Cotton is a premium cotton known for it’s extra long fibers. ... Because of this unique material, Turkish towels are known to become even softer, fluffier, and more absorbent with successive washings. In fact you are advised to wash your towel before first use! Turkish towels are known to be the first iteration of a towel, how neat is that! Being handmade each is unique piece of artisan craftsmanship and are also quite versatile! These lovely pieces of handmade goodness can be used as a beach towel, a sarong, scarf, travel blanket, a throw to brighten up any room, table cover, you name it! I’d love to see photos how you are using yours! And finally, they are simply lightweight and so perfectly packable. I’ve seen those vehicles streaming in week after week, packed to the gills, ya’ll could use some lightweight towels and foldable beach bags to lighten the load!
