A pestamel is a flat woven piece of material that is made as a Turkish bath (hamam) towel. Although in the west we do not appreciate the hamam culture, nor do we have easy access to hamams, pestamel are wonderful travel, sports and beach towels. They pack light and stay light when wet and dry quickly.
The best part about pestamel though, is that they can be worn as scarves, used as table clothes, curtains, blankets and throws. They are beautiful pieces of materials that have uses only limited by your imagination.
These pestamals are woven on old style hand looms from natural materials. All materials are grown in Turkey and woven in there. The intention is to save the art of weaving in Turkey.
