Turkish-T

July 30, 2014

Are y’all sick of the beach-related posts yet? Promise this is the last one. I’m sure that many (if not all of you) are familiar with Turkish towels – many retailers sell variations of the woven cotton towels in different sizes and color variations. What makes them special: most that claim to be authentic Turkish towels are made with 100% cotton that’s processed by hand-woven looms in Turkey. The country is known for producing some of the highest quality cotton products in the world and the towels are as absorbent as traditional towels but take up less room and dry very quickly. They…

Are y’all sick of the beach-related posts yet? Promise this is the last one. I’m sure that many (if not all of you) are familiar with Turkish towels – many retailers sell variations of the woven cotton towels in different sizes and color variations. What makes them special: most that claim to be authentic Turkish towels are made with 100% cotton that’s processed by hand-woven looms in Turkey. The country is known for producing some of the highest quality cotton products in the world and the towels are as absorbent as traditional towels but take up less room and dry very quickly. They are soft, light-weight and often striped in various colors.

Sally and I fell madly in love with the Turkish towel products by Turkish-T that we found in the Alys Shoppe. Megan, the shoppe’s buyer and curator of all the amazing brand’s and products, gushed to us that Turkish-T made the best of the best Turkish towel items and that the quality and softness is what’s earned them such a cult following. The brand is owned and operated out of Nashville by Sue Joyce and has been made popular by fan fanatics like Gwyneth Paltrow (she had limited edition Turkish-T set made for Goop) and Oprah (who added the Boyfriend On The Block sweaters to her list of 2013 favorite things). Even without the celebrity following, I’d still be drawn to Turkish-T. I love how white and bright the scarves, blankets and robes are and if I had the room and the funds, I’d own everything they make.

Sally, our mom and I each got one of the scarves (I got this one with beige stripes) and an extra large bath towel to be used as a blanket from the Alys Shoppe. I can say that my scarf is now always in my handbag so I can pull it out in overly air conditioned restaurants and I’ve been fortunate enough to wear it around Dallas with the cold (mid-80s) and rainy weather we’ve been having. The blanket is heaven – cozy but not heavy – and Sal and I love how the tiny waffled pattern looks a little luxe. The Turkish-T brand was too good a discovery not to pass along and after doing a little look around to see what other Turkish towel products are out there, the price point also makes them a total winner in my book. Now I just need to decide which robe I need to add to my birthday wish list…

  1. I bought my beautiful Turkish towels from The Anatolian on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheAnatolian) and I am extremely happy with the style, quality and the service. The towels are chemical free and 100% handwoven. Especially their beach collection is incredible (I would actually call them candy towels as they are in beautiful summer colors). The prices are ranging between $24 and $32 being the organic ones. But they offer some free shipment or sales deals too. Certainly recommend Turkish towels and this shop!

  2. Great post about turkish towels.
    using them in the bathroom is great if you are living in a high humid places because turkish towels dry really fast and they are made of natural fibres.
    another online store with beautiful options especially for your bathroom is koza turkish towels
    their collection for bathroom is really beautiful.

  3. I got their towel in my Pop Sugar must have box! Also, Cuyana makes an amazing turkish towel and robe!

  4. Hamamas makes some great ones, they sell on net-a-porter, but these are cute too! i definitely want to invest in one. nothing is less chic than a 5 year old disneyworld towel wrapped around a wet bum after a swim haha

  5. I’m not sick of them yet 😉 These towels look amazing. After spending the weekend at the lake and having to drive home with sopping wet towels I may be convinced!
