Ela Peshtemal in Gorse
The Ela cotton peshtemal is woven on a vintage automatic loom from heavy weighted cotton with simple, textured design, finished with hand twisted and knotted fringe.
This hammam towel is a great all rounder which adds a burst of colour draped over a bath tub or chair, rolled in baskets or used as a super soft blanket scarf.
Endlessly versatile the Ela rolls and folds down to about a third of the size of a loop and pile bath sheet so is great for when space is at a premium.
It will easily fit into a shoulder bag, tote or rucksack and can be used for gym, swim and yoga.
Absorbent and quick drying it's flat weave means it is more antimicrobial than traditional towels so requires less laundering.
The Ela is garment dyed (which makes each one unique) and then stone washed, releasing the natural starch which is what makes it so soft.
