We all have probably heard about the Turkish towel. Possibly in the movies or on television or maybe you have had the luxury of using a Turkish towel. Not all Turkish towels are created equal. Some are woven by hand by skilled weavers and brought to you by Bella’s Loom.
Bella’s Handmade Turkish Luxury Towels
Bella’s Loom was kind enough to send me a variety of Turkish towels for a review. I received a beautiful brown and white 100% cotton Pestamel Bosphorus Blanket, a black and white Peskir 100% cotton hand/dish towel, an ecru with purple linen Grace Hand towel and a 100% cotton Pestamel in Bright Green. The Pestamel is Bella’s Loom “so-much-more-than-a towel” towel and the smaller version Peskir are both multi-functional being used for a variety of tasks. Use them as towels, blankets, wraps, table cloths or scarf’s. Finding uses for these is as vast as your options are to the endlessness of your imagination.
100% Cotton Breeze Black and White kitchen/hand towel
I wanted to use these as soon as I was able, but first I needed to follow the specific instructions that came with the towels to make sure I was able to take advantage of the maximum absorbency available with these towels. It was really simple. All I had to do was soak the items in water for approximately 5 hours prior to washing. After soaking, I popped the towels in the washer and washed in cold water without fabric softener and then hung up to dry. I plan to hang these outside once the weather gets warmer and they will have that fresh outdoor clothes line scent.
The instructions say that the more you wash the towels, the more they will absorb and the softer they will become. I know this is true because maybe your grandmother has or had a particular dish towel she always said to use because it was the one towel that would do the job. Well that probably was a linen towel that her Mother or Grandmother had given her or handed down.
Peskir Linen Grace Towel
Bella’s Loom is bringing the old world craftsmanship of hand shuttled looms to the eco-sensitive person who appreciates the quality and luxury of hand woven items. Bella’s Loom works with nine choice family weavers who leave their mark or signature, if you will, on each product they create. It’s in the tassels at the end of the towel. Each weaver ties the threads off in a different way. This puts an interesting touch to your items making you feel connected to the artist who crafted the item.
