In Turkey and other countries known for their hamam culture, supple, thin and hand-woven towels are commonly used in the hamam (bath house). These hamam towels, known as ‘fouta’ in French, are very practical because of their light material and large size. Hamam Towel Small: This Hamam Towel was manufactured without fringes on our request to accommodate our pilgrim wishes: small, light, functional and without any unnecessary extras!
These beautifully striped hamam towels have been made of 100% hydrofoil cotton and so they absorb moist easily. light in weight (just 75 gram). Hamam towel small dries quickly and is easy to wash. So, an ideal towel to pack in your suitcase, backpack or beach bag.

Before first use, put the hamam 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 hamam towels with similar colors. Hamam towels can be washed at 60 degrees and can be tumbled dry.
The use of fabric softener can make hamam towels less absorbent. So do not use fabric softener or use as little as possible.
