Turkish towels have been made and used in Turkey for many, many years. Traditionally they were used as hammam towels, but over the years people have taken Turkish towels out into the world and into their homes. Due to their origins, Turkish towels are often referred to as hammam towels, but you may also hear them being called a peshtemal, a fouta towel or futa towel (if they’ve been made in Tunisia rather than Turkey).
If you’ve looked around at a few different Turkish towels already, you’ll have noticed they come in many designs. As the cotton fibres are woven together to create the design, a unique texture and thickness is created, resulting in each Edition feeling slightly different. At Terzi Editions we sell four different ranges to help you find the design and texture that you like best.
Whatever you call them and whatever the style, there are a few fundamental things that will always be the same.
