The Turkish towel is known in history as plush comfortable towel used as an expression of hospitality to welcome guests in the home. Turkishtowels.com wanted the highest quality of products for our customers. Therefore, we selected a towel made in Turkey where towel production is a great industry making Turkey one of the three top suppliers in the world. Here is where quality counts.
The other important feature of a Turkish towel is the cotton. Many towels are claimed to be cotton yet are really just terry cloth. Our towels are 100% Egyptian cotton or a blend of 100% Long Staple Fine Cotton. The Egyptian cotton is regarded as the cream of the global crop with the longest staple of any type of cotton - 1 - 1/2 inches or longer. Although originally from Egypt, Cotton is also produced in other countries, but still complies with the original Egyptian standards. Considered the finest cotton in the world, it is soft, silky, strong and less likely to pull or lint.
So, what makes a Turkish towel special? The simple answers are two - made in Turkey (quality) and the finest of all cottons (soft, absorbent, and wonderful to feel).
