Peshtemals with purpose

Wave goodbye to heavy traditional towels – peshtemals are not only absorbent and quick drying but also amazing space savers that require less laundering than standard towels making them a little kinder to the environment too.

Hand woven by family ateliers in the Denizli and Hatay regions of Turkey – Lüks peshtemals come with an amazing 20-year repair or replace guarantee – a real testament to the buy less, choose well movement.

Originally woven for use in hammams the peshtemal was traditionally given as wedding presents for the home.

Mixing a blend of heritage weaves including the diamond – synonymous with Turkish culture, to classic herringbone and contemporary stripes Lüks peshtemals come in a range of neutral tones and colour pops to suit any bathroom interior. If you are looking to make a statement in the smallest room in the house these products deliver in spades.

And it doesn’t stop there, being lightweight and compact peshtemals make travel and days out easy too. Folding down to around 25cm 25cm x 4cm you can easily fit one or more into gym bags, shoulder bags and carry-on luggage. Use as sarongs to take you from the beach to bar, or wrap yourself up in cooler climbs they are affordable investment pieces that really can last a lifetime.

Rachel Ward – Founder of Lüks Linen says:  ‘It is difficult to extol the virtues of the peshtemal in a succinct sentence, their endless versatility makes them ideal for modern day indoor and outdoor living, whilst their longevity is a must have for those who like to make conscientious and sustainable purchasing decisions.’
