If you are looking for the perfect towel, we suggest you consider buying Turkish towels. They are popularly called pesthemels or foutas in Turkey and have been around for a long time now. It is believed that Turkish towels were once used in hammams in the 17th century and were used in wedding ceremonies. Here are some of the benefits of using Turkish towels:
- They Are Thin And Lightweight:
Turkish towels are made using Turkish cotton – a premium cotton variety that’s reputed for its extra-long fibres and fewer joints in the fabric. This makes the towels thin and lightweight, making them an excellent travel towel. While standard towels weigh around 400 to 600 grams per square meter, Turkish towels have a GSM range of 300 to 400, hence thin and light. They occupy less space while packing and don’t require much maintenance.
- They Are Easy To Maintain:
Turkish towels are lightweight and dry quickly, making them a better alternative to cheap beach towels. Loopys Turkish towels are prewashed well – you don’t have to wash the towels before using them for the first time, andTurkish towels can be machine washed or hand washed in cold water. And you don’t have to use fabric softeners as well. In fact, we advise against using them because the silicone in these softeners makes the towels water repellent.
- They Are Kid Friendly:
Our range of Turkish towels is made using 100% premium organic cotton. They are all-natural and do not include synthetic dyes or other chemicals and pesticides, making them ideal for kids and those with allergies. Turkish towels are hypoallergenic because they’re thinner and can resist mould and mildew.
- They Are Durable:
The extra-long fibres make them last long when compared to other towels. They do not become scratchy and stiff with prolonged use; they become softer and more absorbent over use.
- They Are Versatile
Their attractive design and colour make them the perfect beach towels. In fact, you can tie them as a sarong or scarf or even sling them as a bag. You can carry them to the beach and use them as a sheet.
