The Turkish Towel Company® encompasses a combined 50-plus years of towel know-how. This partnership marries American design, development, and marketing experience to the world-renowned skills and quality of Turkish towel manufacturing. The result is unsurpassed style and quality in every towel that we produce.
Deep in the mountains of Southern Turkey there is a small village nestled under snow capped peaks. In this mountain hamlet called Babadag, lived and worked many of the master weavers of Turkish carpets. Legend has it that sometime during the 15th Century, one of these craftsmen decided to try weaving towels in the same manner that he wove rugs. Previous to this, all towels in the world were flat woven and had no loops. This weaver thought that the same loops that were used in carpet weaving would make a better towel and in fact the addition of loops to the towel did make it absorb water much faster. And thus the Turkish towel was born and became the world’s standard.
As the towel weaving business in Turkey grew and became world famous, these descendants of the village of Babadag became the best quality towel producers in the world. The Turkish Towel Company® is owned by these descendants.
We inspect our towels four times:
1. After weaving
2. After dyeing
3. After stitching
4. Random spot checks
…to ensure the perfect towel.
Our cotton yarn is also mercerized, increasing its lustre, strength, ability to hold color, and resistance to mildew.
Particular attention is paid to the stitching and finishing of all products. All our towels are double-stitched along the lengths to avoid fraying and for added stability. The Turkish Towel Company® products are all made in the legendary towel producing town of Denizli, Turkey, the world’s largest center for woven terry production.
While a Turkish towel may cost more initially, in the long run it costs a lot less as it will easily outlast towels of inferior quality.
All our products are woven in our modern production facility with Swiss made computer controlled weaving equipment.
