How to use a Turkish Towel

How to use your turkish towel

Turkish towels, also known as  fouta, hammam or peshtemal towels, are known for their versatility. They are lightweight, quick drying, durable and super absorbent, making them nearly perfect for any scenario when you need a pretty piece of fabric. We want to make sure you're maximizing your Fair Seas products, so we're showing you nine different ways you can use your organic Turkish towels all year round. 


The most obvious way to use your Turkish towel is at the beach or pool. The flat weave of the towel (vs. the pile weave of a terry towel) makes it so sand slides right off. Wrap yourself in it after a dip in the water and you'll find your towel dries just as quickly as you do.

Once you start using Turkish towels in your bathroom, you'll never look back! We know at first  they may look thin, but you'll be surprised how absorbent they are. Since they dry so quickly, they're also less likely to mildew. Yes, please.
