What is a Turkish Towel?
Have you ever heard of a Turkish Towel? Me neither. I discovered them during my visit to The National Women’s Show last month, the booth was called POKOLOKO and it was filled with beautifully rich coloured, textured and patterned garments and home decor items. I was impressed and spent quite a bit of time browsing through the stunning collection of woven scarves, blankets, wraps, kimonos and ponchos.

They had some beautifully rolled items labelled Turkish Towels and I was immediately interested. After looking into them I can certainly say that these are a gem. When it comes to purchases for me these days, versatility is the key, the more purposes one items can serve for me the better (clutter drives me a bit mad).
Blanket scarves are one of my favourite accessories because they can be a scarf, shawl, blanket and pillow, Turkish Towels could be the same. “A Turkish towel is essentially a bath towel which measures about 35 inches (90 cm) by 43 inches (110 cm). It is made of cotton or linen that is woven in a certain way to be especially luxurious. It is uncertain exactly when these weaving techniques began to be used, but Turkish towels have become famous all over the world, including in the West.” Source: WiseGEE
