HANDWOVEN & ECO FRIENDLY: This pestemal is handmade in Turkey by master weavers using traditional wooden looms. Hand weaving textiles has a long history in Turkey and the craftsmanship has been passed through family generations. Small imperfections and variations in detail are normal and a welcome reminder of the intricate hand-making process. Made with natural fibers and require less laundering, space and drying than a typical towel.
