What is a Turkish beach towel and what makes it different from a regular beach towel you may ask? There are two answers, quality and uniqueness. The Turkish beach towel traditionally made of cotton has been used for centuries, originating in the period of the Ottoman Turks in the 14th century. Turkish cotton has been grown since then in the Aegean, Southeastern Anatolia and East Mediterranean regions. The cotton fibers are extracted and made into long fibers that are loomed together to create the beautifully crafted Turkish beach towel. The result of this centuries old process is a natural, hygienic, permeable, and absorbent beach towel with unbeatable quality and one of a kind designs.
Turkish Beach Towels were traditionally used by royalty such as Sultans of the Ottoman dynasty. In ancient Turkish traditions, when two people were to be marries, they would each give their partner to be a towel as a gift. Over time the use of these towels diversified and are now used as leisurely beach towels. This came about as the beaches of Turkey became more and more popular with flocks of celebrities and socialites spending their summer vacations along the coast, the Turkish beach towels became very popular among the masses. We were really the first innovators to bring this Turkish style beach towel to the US. The Scents and Feel’s multi colored turkish beach towel was featured in Martha Stewart. Our Spring/Summer collection is created every year by fashion designer Jenny Haik who takes inspiration from colors and patterns seen on the fashion runways, the surroundings of Europe, Africa, and wherever else the world takes her.
