Turkish TowelsThursday, March 01, 2012
Spring is just around the corner! The first official day of spring is March 20th and I'm so ready. We never really had much of a winter here in Florida so we might as well forget about it and bring on the sunshine. My latest weird obsession came just in time for spring. I can't get enough of these Turkish Towels!
Turkish Towels are so versatile! They come in every color imaginable and of course, stripes! Turkish Towels have a light weight weave of cotton and linen that makes them soft and thin. They've been weaved a special way for luxury that has been used for over 1,000 years!
These towels are a very important part of Turkish social life. They were originally meant for ceremonial bath for a bride before her wedding day. They continue to be used for other important occasions because they are considered the ultimate luxury towel.
Reasons why I'm sold:
-Can be used as a wrap-around that's way more comfortable than a thick massive towel
-Perfect size for traveling (spring trip, hello)
-Use it as a sofa throw! They come in all sizes and are still really soft!
-One word: stripes
-Quick drying time & great for the beach (no more stuck sand in your towel)
-Thin material gives you more closet space in your bathroom
-They are just...really pretty (the year of color!)
