I have never uttered or written the phrase “For the win” until now: I was saving it for something special. And that something special has presented itself in the form of Traditional Turkish Towels.
Turkish Towels are also known as Pestemals and Foutas, which sound like delicious snacks. (fast forward to 1:14 – you won’t be sorry)
Not sure where I have been since the 18th Century when such towels first made their appearance, but I purchased them on a whim a month ago and they’ve made an awesome addition to my already fulfilling life.
super soft after a few washings
quick to dry
lightweight for travel
naturally smell and mold resistant
easy to conceal in your luggage if you visit a friend who owns questionable towels, or visit Your Hometown.
You can use them for…
Awesome & affordable gifts
Sarongs or scarves
Trips to Turkey
They are much sexier to wrap around your post-swim body than a bulky Pedestrian Towel. Just ask these sexy beasts:
And, they have been known to make frequent appearances on world-famous beaches such as St. Tropez and Cannes, where people apparently aren’t allowed to carry their own umbrellas.
On a recent yoga retreat to Maya Tulum, (no words) the beach towels we were advised to bring took up about 50% of our suitcases. For shame!
Here is where I bought mine. Depending on the day, they are as low as $10 each.
After reading this, you are probably wondering how you have survived thus far without Turkish Towels in your repertoire. I’m not sure either. (slowly shakes head)
