What is Pestemal ( Peshtemal) ?
A staple of the Ottoman hamam culture, dating back hundreds of years, the pestemal was originally designed to help individual bathers maintain their privacy. Today, this light weight garment lends itself perfectly to quotidian use. In addition to being a wonderful bath towel due to its high absorbancy, the pestemal dries faster than its thicker counterparts. Combined with its compact nature, this makes pestemal an ideal accessory for the beach, spa, gym, sauna, or beauty parlor. Thanks to the vibrant color scheme of QuiQuattro’s pestemals that are soft to the touch, many of our clients also use them for drier occasions as every day scarves or decorative throws.
