Turkish hand towel

  • a peshtemal (also spelled peshtamal, pestamal, or pestemal) is a traditional towel used in baths. a staple of Ottoman Hamam culture, dating back hundreds of years, the peshtemal was originally designed to help individual bathers maintain their privacy.
  • in addition to being highly absorbent, peshtemals dry faster than thicker towels.
  • it is also used to indicate which region people are from. there are many kinds of peshtemal, with different styles and colors in different areas of Turkey and Iran.
  • the peshtemal fabric is made of 100% cotton produced in manually operated looms in modern Turkey, historically in Antioch. Cotton has long fibers that open up with use, allowing the thin towels to be highly absorbent.
  • the peshtemal absorbs water as fast as a traditional towel, dries very quickly, takes up less space, is easy to carry, and is therefore used as an alternative to the towel in bathrooms, pools, spas, beaches, sports facilities, and for baby care.

customer reviews


My friend introduced me to Latika as a gift and it's been a blessing.
We love the white sage & shower bombs. The shower bombs are new to us as we always use bath bombs, but just as refreshing.

So relaxing and smells wonderful

I shipped these to my niece in Florida at her request. She is addicted to your products.


I initially bought these as a gift for a friend and she raved about them so much that I bought them for myself. I’m happy to say that they live up to my high expectations.

Love Latika!

The shower steamers smell amazing and are perfect when you don't have time for a long bath but still need a little luxury in your life. All Latika products are very high quality.

Long lasting, good smelling

These last forever! No more immediate disintegrating down the drain. And they smell great!
