White Turkish hand towel made with pure Turkish cotton

The Big Question

What Are Woven Towels?

Soft, absorbent, lightweight and versatile. Flat woven towels are a luxury product originating from 17th century Hammam bathhouses. The world inherited this superb cloth and has cherished it ever since. Today, this towel is called by many different names: Hammam Spa towel, Peshtemal, Futa, Turkish Towel and Woven Towel. They are a prize of world travelers and luxury home owners who value their many virtues and high style.

Pomp & Sass offers an exclusive line of woven towels made with pure Turkish cotton, by a family owned business in Turkey. The long strand of cotton is both durable and known as high quality. These beautiful towels are ideal for the bath, beach and also as a light blanket or sarong. They offer a large surface area while also folding small which functions for use and limited luggage capacity.
