About Turkish Bath Towels
Bath towels are usually selected for their color and other decorative elements. There are several various of bath towel styles. And one that popular is Turkish bath towels. Turkey has historically been one of the world’s largest producers and weavers of cotton. Even today, Turkey has a place as one of the top three suppliers of cotton towels in the world. As far as when and how the weaving methods used in Turkish bath towels came to be, there is much folklore and little verified history. Turkish bath towels are woven from cotton with extra long fibers grown in the Aegean area of Turkey. Weaving cotton with longer fibers produces cotton yarn with fewer joins and results in cotton threads that are stronger and more durable as well as smoother, which creates a luxuriously soft towel. Turkish bath towels must be pure cotton and not terrycloth, plus the cotton fabric must weigh 14 ounces per square yard.
