Here’s a brief history of the hammam towel
Used in bath houses of Ancient Rome, the hammam towel was originally a rectangular shaped cloth used as a towel. It is one of the first garments of humankind dating back to the Anatolian Culture (200 B.C.). Now revisited and designed in a modernized form in flat and honeycomb weave.
History of Hammam Towels, the tightly woven loom work gives the hammam towel a high level of absorbency and durability. Made in the traditional way, Tunisian men handle the heavy loom work while the women finish the intricate fringe work to create these luxurious towels. 100% cotton super lightweight and compact, they still have the same absorbency as normal towels but are more quick drying and versatile.
Thanks to its extraordinary durability and versatility, the hammam towel has emerged as the new generation of bath, beach and pool towels all over Europe and America. Eco friendly and tight woven, the more you wash it the softer and more absorbent it gets. The time honoured tradition of looming has proven impossible to duplicate. Hammams have various titles depending where in the world you are, two of the popular names are fouta and peshtemal.
