MEHMED BLACK/WHITE OTTOMAN ARTISAN BATH TOWEL SET
ARTISAN BATH TOWELS
Our Turkish weavers specialize in creating large, plush towels. They are sustainably handcrafted by two families in Turkey who still retain the knowledge of the looping technique that creates such outstanding quality.
2 Piece Set (Big Towel: 100x170cm / Small Towel, Bath Mat: 55x95cm)
Each Turquoise Istanbul towel is made from the highest quality Turkish GOTS certified organic cotton, which makes our towels natural, eco-friendly and healthy. Traditional weaving makes our towels long lasting with excellent absorbency and plushness. All dyes are also organic, every product is un-treated, non-coated and chemical free.
Turquoise Istanbul supports traditional craftsmanship. Our treasured old-shuttled looms have been passed down from generation to generation, with the oldest one being over 100-years-old. Traditional methods are applied to the entire process including the most magnificent hand-tied fringing and tassels, some of which can take hours to complete.
Before initial use we recommend soaking towels in cold water over night and hang to drip dry. This step allows the cotton to bloom and begin to reach its maximum absorbency. Washing machine 40°. Tumble dry medium or hang to drip dry. Do not over dry. No bleach or fabric softener. If threads are snagged and pulled out, simply cut the thread off. This will not damage the piece.
By purchasing a TURQUOISE ISTANBUL product you are investing in a unique, high-quality product and supporting the livelihoods of our artisans and their families.
