Travel Towel

What is a travel towel? Have you ever considered using quick drying hammam towels as travel towels? 100% cotton, lightweight, compact, and highly absorbent.

There are so many choices, many travellers like the idea of using a micro-fibre towel due to its practicality to use to dry you off but are you aware they contain a minimum of 30% plastic. Some larger companies claim they are using 100% “recycled materials” so 100% plastic, they all shed microplastics every time they are washed? Not good for you, your family, or the environment.

Using hammam towels as travel towels opens up a whole range of uses. In fact, they are probably one of the most versatile towels you will own. Here’s a small list of what they can be used for, and other uses we will leave up to your imagination.



  • As travel towels – Quick drying hammam towels are more absorbent than any conventional towel so they will dry you off quicker
  • As a ground sheet – With our hammam sizes starting at 180 cm x 100 cm up to 200 cm x 200 cm they’re big enough to share
  • Deck Towels – Whether you own a paddle board, canoe, or superyacht our hammam towels are perfect for any use.
  • Sun shield? – With our larger size hammams they’re colourful and make a great awning.
  • Beach Towel – Our traditional woven hammams have a tight weave so as a consequence sand can be shaken off easily, so less mess in your tent.
  • Use it as a sarong or a wrap when leaving the shower area. Hammam towels also dry off quicker compared to a terry towel.
  • Do you love wild swimming? Our traditional or lined hammams are great for drying you off

Therefore the best travel towels are hammam towels

Size and weight

  • Compact – When folded or rolled they are smaller than a standard towel, also great if hiking, and easy to store away.
  • Lightweight – Our standard hammams weigh less than 500 grams, so less weight to carry.
  • Extra Large – We also have a range of extra range hammams, just click “here” to view.
