This beautiful towel is new but made exactly the same way as one of the old Ottoman towels we have in our private collection. Therefore we called the towel OTTOMAN. For practical use we replaced the original silk threads by viscose.
It is a truly elegant towel with a subtle shimmer, also very nice and useful as tea towel. It looks even nicer after being washed.
Pull the knots of the fringes of the towel before washing (the first time only). Before use, put the 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 towels with similar colours. The towels can be washed at 60 degrees and can be tumbled dry.
The use of fabric softener can make towels less absorbent. So do not use fabric softener or use as little as possible.
