Please wash your beach towel before first use. The pestemal beach towel gets softer with each wash and is very durable. Traditionally used as a Turkish Bath Towel or a Hammam Towel, and also known as a Fouta Towel, the Pestemal Beach Towel is celebrated for being light yet highly absorbent. The practical and cotton woven cloth, which has a history of around 600 years, is used most commonly as a beach towel today. The Mediterranean seaside and Greek islands come to life with the versatile and colorful pestemal beach towel. This beach towel is light enough and fashionable to wrap around the waist. The pestemal beach towel also works great as an outdoor spread. This beach towel won’t collect sand like conventional beach towels.
