What is a Turkish Towel?

Turkish towels are loomed in Turkey of 100% Turkish cotton. This is a premium long-fiber cotton that grows only in the Aegean region of Turkey. The extra long fibers yield stronger and smoother threads than regular cotton, which creates textiles that are softer but more durable than their regular cotton counterparts. Turkish towels are flat-woven, as opposed to the loop design of terry-cloth towels. This allows them to dry quickly without developing any musty or mildewy odor. They are oversized but compact, as well as soft, absorbent, and sand-repellant. These features combine to make an incredibly versatile towel that can double as a throw, yoga mat, picnic blanket, shawl, sarong, baby blanket, and the list goes on.

Talented artisans proudly carry on the tradition of crafting Turkish towels in much the same way they have been for centuries, creating exceptionally beautiful and versatile towels. Their craft has evolved to include a wider variety of types of weaves as well as stunning designs. At SolWoven, we are proud to share their works of art with you. Wrap yourself up in a luxurious SolWoven towel!

How do I care for my SolWoven towels?

We recommend washing your SolWoven towels before the first use. Machine wash cold alone or with similar colors. Use mild detergent, but no bleach or fabric softener. Tumble dry on low heat or hang to dry. 

A few extra tips: The long-fiber cotton of Turkish towels plump up to their fullest potential when they are pre-soaked. You can soak them in a sink or tub of cold water for up to 12 hours, then launder as described above. My easy breezy approach for my new towels is to select a pre-soak option on my washer along with a long wash cycle. This leaves the threads submerged for plenty of time for them to come out plump and soft. Hang or tumble dry on low. Your SolWoven towels will become softer and more absorbent with each wash.

Definitely skip the fabric softener, which would actually make your towels less absorbent. Wool dryer balls added when tumbling dry are a great alternative. Adding a cup of white vinegar to your wash cycle every once in a while also encourages softness and washes away any build up of detergent.
