  • How to care for your Turkish towel

    Turkish Towel Collection

    In this blog we'll look at 6 tips for getting the most out of your Turkish towel.

    1. Washing 

    We recommend washing your Turkish towel before use for best results. Cold or warm water machine wash (max 40C) and a slow to medium spin cycle is recommended. Avoid using fabric softeners as these contain chemicals which may reduce the absorbency of your towel. Do not use bleach as this may damage your towel. Just like a fine wine, your Turkish towel will continue to improve over time, becoming softer and more absorbent with every wash 

    2. Drying 

    We recommend line drying for your Turkish towel where possible. If you need to use a dryer, use a lower heat setting to avoid damaging the cotton. 

    3. Ironing 

    Regular ironing, steam or dry, may be performed on a medium setting (150C). Ironing at high temperatures may damage the cotton fibres of the towel, decreasing its longevity and softness.

    4. Maximising Absorbency

    Adding one cup of white vinegar to your wash periodically will help to remove residue and improve the softness and absorbency of your Turkish towel.

    5. Pulled Threads

    Don't worry! Our towels are woven and a pulled thread will not cause your towel to unravel. If your Turkish towel has a pulled thread, simply cut off the thread with a pair of scissors. This will not damage the integrity of your towel and leaves the thread neat and tidy.

    6. Unraveled Tassels

    The tassels on our Turkish towels are hand-knotted and may become unraveled with use or when washing/drying. This will not affect the durability of your towel and unraveled tassels can be easily re-tied. 

  • An island paradise and special parrot that needs our help

    Norfolk Island is an idyllic paradise located in the South Pacific. Steeped in heritage and natural beauty, Norfolk Island is holiday-makers dream. Whether it's relaxing on a white sandy beach or exploring the rich history, Norfolk Island offers something for everyone.

    Much of Norfolk Island's natural forest has been cleared overtime to make way for farming and housing. National Park makes up just 10% of the island's area and is home to some unique flora and fauna including the Norfolk Island Green Parrot. This species of parrot is found nowhere else in the world. Sadly, due to the introduction of cats and rats to the island, it has now become very rare. Thanks to efforts of volunteers and Parks staff, the Norfolk Island Green Parrot is making a comeback. The hard work isn't over yet and your help is needed to secure the long term survival of this species. 

    In the coming months, Parks Australia staff are looking to relocate a population of young fledgling parrots to nearby Phillip Island. Phillip Island offers a safe haven for the parrots away from other predators. This complex task presents significant costs for National Parks and your support is needed to help them reach their target of $77000 to make it happen!  https://pozible.com/project/operation-green-parrot 

    To show our support, we are donating $250 to this project and $5 for every towel sold on our website for the month of March 2017. See our full range of Turkish towels here.

    We visited Norfolk Island in 2014. Take a look at our short video and see the special place it is!

      

    Thanks for your support and happy travels,

    Sandy Cove Trading Co.
