we’ve all been hearing about the wonder of Turkish towels, but I hadn’t thought to try any because they never looked liked towels to me. In my head, I’m like - how am I supposed to dry off with a blanket? Ha. Then I went to Mexico and they had some in the bathroom. Holy moly, did I not immediately research some for the house immediately when I got back. They’re that good, but not all are created equal. The babies I found from Anatolico are the real deal. Soft, luxurious, handmade by artists in turkey and absolutely heavenly.
from the brand: The waffle-weave towel is the perfect hair towel because of its size and texture. The softest, most absorbent towel you can find. It is narrower than our other Turkish towels but (in terms of absorbency) what it lacks in surface it makes up for in its waffley texture and softness. It's the only solid color towel we make. It is hand-loomed by local artisans in Turkey using the best Turkish cotton, following the authentic traditional technique.
Materials and benefits It is not completely flat-woven, rather it has a "waffley" weave giving it more surface for maximum absorbency, and is 100% cotton.
Turkish towels are: Surprisingly absorbent. Extremely lightweight and easy to carry. Quick-drying even in the most humid environments and always smell fresh. Perfect for everyday use: At home or at the beach, the pool or your yoga class. Super-versatile: Use them like a shawl, a scarf, a throw or a blanket.
