Turkish hammam towel, also known as peshtemal, have made it out of the traditional Turkish baths and became a part of our everyday modern living in the last decade or so.

This elegant peshtemal, the first piece from The Essentials collection, goes back to the roots of the art of bath towel weaving. This peshtemal is inspired by and recrafted by hand from the 1862 painting Le Bain Turc by Ingres. For centuries the Turkish baths have been spaces where people get together to socialise, entertain and hold special celebrations. The painting by Ingres depicts a celebration in a Turkish bath at the Ottoman Palace. The famous painting has become the symbol of orientalism and has made a notable impression by the nudity and eroticism it contains. This elegant peshtemal of pure organic Turkish cotton will enamour you with its heavenly softness.

We crafted the beautiful peshtemal on the painting with the same weaving techniques that were used centuries ago. We use a special thread blend acquired from local growers across Turkish villages that is composed of 12 different kinds of cotton, each carrying different characteristics determined by the climate of the producing region. The inimitable threads we call The Essential Blend give the peshtemals of the Essentials collection incredible softness, marvellous hang and an exceptional feel.
