I’ve finally found the beach towel of my dreams. These super soft cotton peshtemal are made in Istanbul and traditionally used in Turkish baths. They absorb water well, but dry quickly and roll up into compact travel- and tote-friendly sizes. I’ll also wear mine as a shawl during these last few evenings of summer.
