The beautifully striped, timeless hammam towels from Ottomania are made of high-quality hydrophilic cotton, which means they absorb moisture very well.
These lightweight towels are ideal as a beach towel or travel towel as they are large yet fold up compactly.
A hammam towel dries quickly and is easy to wash. An ideal towel for in a suitcase, backpack or beach bag.
This size, the XL, fits completely over a beach chair. But also ideal as a beach towel for two people or the whole family. Many people also use this size as a tablecloth or picnic blanket.
Pull the knots of the fringes of the hammam towel before washing (the first time only). Before use, put the hammam towel in COLD water for about 12 hours (if possible, not necessary). This will make the fibers stronger and the absorption better. It also reduces shrinkage. Then wash it at 40 degrees.
Wash your hammam towels with similar colours. Hammam towels can be washed at 60 degrees and can be tumbled dry.
The use of fabric softener can make hammam towels less absorbent. So do not use fabric softener or use as little as possible. We advise not to iron the hammam towels, as it will close the fibers which makes it less absorbent.
