bedestan curates the best fabrics that Turkey has to offer. these are cozy luxuries... loomed, used, and loved in Anatolia for generations.
what is a pestemal?
pesh - te - mal
pestemals are towels traditionally used in Turkish baths.
the pestemal absorbs water as fast as a traditional towel, dries quicker, and takes up less space. because of this, it is especially ideal for traveling, camping, haircare and baby care.
pestemals are an eco-friendly and ethical alternative to regular terry-cloth towels, both in their make and use. they require ~30% less energy to launder and release no synthetic fibers to the water.
our pestemals are made from 100% natural turkish cotton & linen and can be used for variety of purposes: as picnic spreads, throws, beach towels and scarves. they are made to last for years.
