As summer sunshine begins to brighten our days, Skylark+Owl Linen Co. is excited to announce our newest comfort — Turkish Peshtemals Towels! Traditionally a Turkish fabric used widely in luxury towels, a peshtemal is a remarkably strong, durable and soft fabric perfect for more than just the bathroom.
And that’s why our peshtemals are more than just… towels. In fact, our peshtemals make wonderful beach towels, picnic blankets, throw blankets and bathroom comforts — the perfect, multi-purpose textile to bring into your home, on outdoor adventures, and everything in between.
While we’re all about helping you to create a warm, comfortable and cozy nest, we want to help you carry your comforts outside of the home, too. With our peshtemals, you can take comfort with you wherever you’re enjoying your summer day… and then bring it right on back. The launch of Skylark+Owl’s Turkish Peshtemals Towels will elevate all of your experiences.
What is a Peshtemal?
A peshtemal is a textile that originated within the Persian and Ottoman Empires, and the large, thin towels were first used to help bathers keep their privacy. Over the years, the peshtemal has earned its place in the luxury textile category as a remarkably durable and soft fabric. Constructed of 100% Turkish cotton and tightly woven, peshtemal towels strike the delicate balance between being deliciously soft and lightweight.
Caring for Peshtemal Towels
When cared for correctly, peshtemal towels can last forever. First off, peshtemal fabric doesn’t need heavy detergents or fabric softeners. Instead, wash with a mild detergent and cool water. Then, tumble dry on low — or, better yet, hang peshtemals to dry — so they can maintain their structural integrity. By washing with minimal detergent, the fibres stay strong and intact, preserving peshtemal’s quality for years to come. We’d also always recommend washing with similar colours and fabrics to avoid any colour bleed.
Besides that, you’re covered (literally) — you don’t need to specially care for peshtemals any differently than you would cotton. Instead, just treat them gently and let them reward you.
