Turkish Beach & Bath Towels

Since winter has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere, it takes days for a regular towel to dry. By the time it dries; boom it’s your bath time again. I hate the damp feeling of bulky and heavy towels so I went out for a shopping. It was the light-weight traditional Turkish peshtemal towel that was on my mind.  70% lighter, dries 5 times faster, absorbs just as much water and looks 100 times better than the regular towels. I fell in love with the variety ad the quality once I received my towels from Peshtemalart Online towel store.

Okay these are refered to as beach towels but they are just as good for being bath towels. You cna use them at bath, shower, sauna, spa or whatever place that you need to dry your body. Once you use a peshtemal, yo can’t go back to old fluffy, heavy and mouldy towels. No way back!!!

Winter is Coming! Let’s buy a rug

As the winter has shown its cold face around the corner with the strong winds from the North; The bare floor is looking and feeling colder than ever before. So I decided to buy a rug. I started looking for a 5′ x 8′ patchwork rug, but I settled for a 6′ x 9′ Turquoise Blue Over-dyed Turkish Rug with oriental underlying patterns.

I bought it from Cyprus Rug store. They offer free worldwide shipping and it arrived in 5 days. That was very impressing. What I most like about the overdyed rugs is their story. You pay 500-600 US$ for a a 6×9 rug which was hand-woven in mid 1900 by some Turkish villagers. Never been used tucked in a depot in the house for over 60 years and suddenly somebody discovered a way to make them come back into fashion again! they shaved, bleached and over-dyed the rugs and converted them into a completely modern looking vintage rug. The moment I put the rug in my living room, it felt like it had been there for 100 years.  Another good think about it is it is  thin; less tan a centimetre and yet still very soft for bare feet. I’m loving it.
