Turkish Cotton – are Turkish cotton towels the best?
With our company roots in Turkey, we’d say yes - but to be honest, it’s all about the quality of cotton. It just so happens that Turkey is home to some of the most revered cotton in the world.
Turkey is known for its long staple cotton. Long staple cotton adds strength and smoothness to the yarn that is equally applied to the finished product.
In addition to Turkish cotton towels, we offer towels made in India, known for their long history and craftsmanship.
You might have seen towels advertised as having a certain GSM, leaving you to wonder, “what is GSM?” GSM refers to the towel’s weight or grams per square meter. The higher the GSM, the heavier the towel. While a lush heavy towel can be perfect to wrap yourself in after a shower, they are not the most practical. Typically, the higher the GSM the longer they take to dry. All of our towels are medium weight, meaning they are substantial in weight but are guaranteed to be dry the next time you step out of the shower.
What is terry cloth?
Terry cloth is a pile fabric which can have loops or cut loop (pile) on one or both sides. Terry cloth is super absorbent and is most commonly used in towels, bath mats and bath robes. Many of our bath products are made of terry cloth.
