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.
