Recreated from the 19th century painting by Renoir.
Peshtemal towels were always favored across the world as they are now. Spreading to the world from the Turkish bath, the weaved bath peshtemals were the favorite of European bourgeois women during the 19th century. We came across this one on Après Le Bain by Renoir and fell in love at first sight. The elegant peshtemal we weaved based on the Renoir painting mesmerizingly captivating the natural beauty of the female form will enchant you with the softness pure natural Turkish cotton.
We crafted the beautiful peshtemal on the painting with the same weaving techniques that were used centuries ago. We use a special thread blend acquired from local growers across Turkish villages that is composed of 12 different kinds of cotton, each carrying different characteristics determined by the climate of the producing region. The inimitable threads we call The Essential Blend give the peshtemals of the Essentials collection incredible softness, marvelous hang and an exceptional feel.
