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, flat-woven pestamel are wonderful travel, sports, sauna and beach towels. They pack light and stay light when wet and dry quickly.
The best part about flat-woven 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.
At Jennifer's Hamam, we only carry pestamel woven on old-style looms. Most of our pestamels are produced using 100% GOTS organic certified Turkish cotton, but we also make pestamel from Turkish linen and silk.
