We have our first spoiler for the January 2016 GlobeIn Artisan Box “Bathe” box!
All January 2016 GlobeIn Artisan Box will contain:
~Pestemal Bath Towel from Turkey (Retail $25). Colors will vary.
A small town in Denizli, Buldan has historically boasted production of the finest hand-loomed cottons in Turkey. In the Ottoman period, resident weavers were tasked with weaving the outfits of sultans. Even today, almost every household contains a loom.
Guler Sucu is a member of Atlas, a growing organization of weaving families in Buldan whose members earn a living through sharing their ancient craft with global customers. While her husband looms, Guler creates the towel’s characteristic fringes. Each fringe supports some cost of her home, whether a school book for her children or firewood for the stove.
A traditional accessory to the Turkish bath, your 100% cotton pestemal towel absorbs water faster than a regular towel, dries quickly, and folds up small.
Measurements: 39 x 67 in (100 x 170 cm)
Suggested use: Tote along to the pool or use for baby care. Machine wash in warm or cold water with like colors. Line dry or dry gently, avoiding drier sheets or high heat.
