A textile with a long history.
Turkish sandfree towels, also called the peshtamel, have a long and interesting history. They’ve been around for centuries and have been used in various ways. This textile is tightly woven from thick, absorbent cotton, making them incredibly durable, resistant to sand and other particles, and perfect for many outdoor activities.
The Turkish peshtamel was a traditional bedding item for many centuries. In the past, people often placed them between two pieces of furniture to provide extra cushioning and warmth. The thick cotton weave was warm and perfect for absorbing sweat and other body liquids during sleep. The peshtamel was quite a valuable item for those who had to sleep on the ground or in rough conditions.
