The Ultimate Travel Companion: Peshtemal

Hand-woven from high quality cotton fibers, Turkish towels have been gaining momentum as alternatives to standard terry cloth towels. They're lightweight, well designed, easy to clean, and very versatile, which makes them perfect for traveling. Use them as a towel, throw, wrap, table runner, at the beach or on a picnic — and, bonus, they take up very little space in your bag or luggage.
