When I arrived at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, I searched them out to bring home.I picked up a beautiful magenta and beige cotton one to use for the beach, which matched my favorite bikini perfectly. I have used the same towel for years, and am obsessed with how useful it is. Like I mentioned above, the flat weave is much less bulky than the terry-cloth weaves that we are used to. Because they are so thin, you can wrap them around you like a pareo, or even use them like a scarf. They are very absorbent and dry quickly. But most importantly, they are incredibly chic.
Although my name hints at local products, I also love other cultures, and my goal is to integrate special items like these traditional textiles into my line. I hope you enjoy the pestemals I have available in cotton, fiber linen, linen, and bamboo/linen blend.
