I was first introduced to the “Turkish Towel” by a friend. She had recently traveled to Australia and said that because of their light weave and durability, they were all the rage on all of the beaches. I was impressed by their functionality and drawn to their beauty. Traditional terry cloth towels pale in comparison to the beautiful construction of these towels, imported from Istanbul. They are a beautiful addition to any bathroom. The lighter weaved linen towels can also be used as a beautiful light wrap on cool spring and fall evenings. Their versatility is never ending.
