You might say that the art of the bath was perfected in the ancient Turkish culture with the hammam (similar to a sauna) as an important personal ritual for cleanliness. We’ve since adopted many similar aspects of the traditional Turkish bath into our own bathing routines, even including the style of towels that were used. Turkish bath towels, also known as foutas, pestemals, or hammam towels, are exceptionally soft, moisture-wicking, and quick to dry, plus their high-quality fabric and chic designs make them versatile enough to be used as beach towels, throw blankets, or even sarongs. If you’ve never used one, you don’t even know the exquisite post-bath pampering you’ve been missing — check out our top Turkish bath towel picks below.
