Based on the traditional Turkish towels famously used in Turkish baths, Woolworths’ new Pestemal-style beach towel is a soft and functional alternative to your average ‘pile’ towel. While the Pestemal towel doesn’t feature the ultra-fluffy surface we’ve come to associate with good water absorption, this 100% cotton sheet absorbs water just as easily as a traditional towel. Quick drying and lightweight, the towel is easy to carry making it ideal for use at pools, sport facilities, spas and beaches. Versatile and sporting generous 100 x 180cm dimensions, the towel also makes a good travel companion for backpackers or adventurers who like to travel light. The Pestemal towel is R199 and available in cerise and blue from woolworths.co.za.
