Why Turkish Towels..?

Five Reasons to Love them...

The traditional use for these flat woven towels was in a Turkish bath or hamam, so they’ll be perfectly at home in your bathroom.


They are lightweight, absorbent, and quick to dry – they’re a welcome addition to your beach bag, travel case or picnic basket. And weigh next to nothing!


Did we mention that they also work as a scarf, wrap or sarong? Stylish new mothers will appreciate them as a chic baby wrap, and since they’re made from natural cotton they’ll only get softer with age.

You can even throw one over your summer table as a gorgeous runner or tablecloth.


And of course they make wonderful Summer / Christmas Gifts.

We hope the Ottoman Empire weavers who started it all several centuries ago would be happy to hear that their traditional cloth is absolutely perfect for the way we live now. Turkish towels are, without doubt, here to stay.

Some simple steps to re-tie your tassels.

Divide the loose threads into two equal sections.
Twist the two sections separately in a clockwise direction until each piece is twisted to the ends.
Twist the two sections together in the opposite (counter-clockwise) direction until the two sections are twisted completely.
Tie a knot at the end.

I have previously bought 2 from Foxes Den, last year, on one, the other was a gift, the tassels began to unravel after washing, A bit of a nuisance, because of that I’m a little weary. Believe me, I’d love to ‘gift them’. Can you offer assurance that the tassels will sustain laundering. Regards anyway.
