I am excited to introduce an exciting giveaway with one of my favorite small businesses today! PSTML is an artisan Turkish Towel company that got it's start with a successful Kickstarter campaign. PSTML sources their Pestemal & Turkish towels directly from the small village of Babadag in Turkey. The village is the birthplace of the turkish textile industry, and the manufacturer is the last of their kind in the region. PSTML's mission is to showcase the stories of people, customs, and cultures by curating premium, artisan goods for people seeking authentic, sustainable, and responsibly sourced goods. They recently released a handful of beautiful new designs. I received a set of blue stripe Turkish Pestemal Bath Towels and they are perfect for the beach or the bathroom.
A pestemal or peshtamal (pesh-te-mahl) is an authentic Turkish towel. It is flat-woven with a hand-tied fringe, generally made with Turkish cotton. Pestemal are colorful, fast drying, absorbent and an essential element of the Turkish bath experience. Pestemal are used as towels, decorative throws and packable travel towels.
