Turkish Towels are made of 100% Turkish cotton, known worldwide to be high quality long strand cotton. These towels are thin and lightweight, and highly absorbent. With wear and washing they become softer and more absorbent over time. Being lighter and thinner they also take less energy to wash & dry, (warm wash & dry with gentle detergent, like you would any other towel or cotton garment). Enjoy them at the pool, after a shower, sauna, in the kitchen, and for travel.
