The Ideal Christmas Gift For Anyone That Gets Wet.
Hammam Beach Towels
First of all, welcome and thank you for visiting our website to view our range of hammam towels.
What are hammam towels? They are an incredibly versatile rectangle of woven colourful 100 % cotton (no environmentally damaging micro-fibre plastics) multi-functional towels which you can use for whatever purpose you see fit.
A hammam beach towel comes into its own when the sun shines. Used as a picnic blanket, a beach towel, a sarong or even an outdoor tablecloth, this lightweight and fast-drying piece will see you through spring, summer and for years to come.
During autumn and winter, they are still highly versatile whether you’re at a gym or an indoor swimmer. Also, so many people travel abroad to escape to the sun and may only take hand/cabin luggage, so again perfect.
But it’s equally at home brightening up the bathroom any time of year (minimalists, avert your eyes: these striking tasselled textiles come in an array of colours and patterns and look great when mixed and matched).
Also known as a peshtemal, fouta or kikoy, the hammam towel, crafted in flat-woven cotton, has ancient design roots.
Traditionally, the towels were made for use in the steamiest of Turkish baths and boast hard-wearing properties ideal for humid conditions and have been around for centuries.
Here are just some of the uses our customers have found for them:
- Swimming Towel
- Beach Towel
- Travel Towel
- Cabin/Hand Luggage
- Gym Towel
- Camping Towel
- Motorhome Towel
- Watersports Towel
- Festival Towel
Forget terry towelling or microfiber towels. If you want fast-drying lightweight, highly versatile, absorbency multi-function towels, hammam towels are ideal for anyone who gets wet. Perfect for home or holidays, the ultimate travel companion. There’s nothing better than an easy washable, fast-drying hammam towel.
The history of the hammam towel is undeniably rich. Dating back centuries, hammam towels were originally used in ancient bath houses in the Mediterranean and the Middle East. As opposed to the heavy towels many of us use day to day, hammam towels are crafted from lightly woven cotton. Once you have used one you will wonder why you never had one before. They are like drying yourself on a giant tea towel.

Love the beach?
Owning a hammam towel means you will always be beach ready. Ideal for lying on to take in a few rays or to cover yourself with to protect from the rays. One shake of a tight weave hammam towel and not a grain of sand stays on them. One metre by two metres of colourful 100% cotton means you’ve got a sarong or a wrap too if you want to wear one.
Don’t leave home without a hammam towel. Light and compact they will roll or fold into the smallest of spaces. Perfect for hand luggage or a backpack, owning a hammam towel will mean you are prepared for all eventualities.
Whether you have a quick getaway or taking your first holiday in years, taking just hand luggage, or ramming that suitcase full. They make great travel towels. You could get four hammam towels in the same space as one beach towel (room for another pair of shoes).
Love the gym?
Take a hammam towel in your gym bag. Nothing better than a quick shower after a good workout. Throw your hammam towel into the wash/dry with your sweaty gym gear and you’ll be back up and running in no time.
Whether you go glamping or camping a hammam beach towel is a must, whatever form of transport you are using a hammam towel is so compact and lightweight you can squeeze it into any rucksack or overnight bag. Gone will be the days of lugging around a smelly heavy wet terry towel, hammam towels hung over guide rope will dry in no time at all in the morning sun. Get a little chilly in the evenings? use your hammam towel as a shawl.

Love sailing or any water sport?
If you’re lucky enough to own or use a superyacht you probably don’t need to worry about space, however, hammam towels make amazing deck towels. If you do own a sailing vessel of any other type you’ll know that space can be an issue, hammam towels when you fold or roll are lightweight and compact and they dry you quickly.
What could be better to take to a festival than a hammam towel? Start by wearing it as a colourful scarf, wear it as a shawl or sarong as the evening gets cooler, lie down on it whilst you take in the music vibes, sleep under it in your tent, dry yourself on it when and if you take a shower.
