Questions, answers and reviews about Cacala Peshtemal Turkish Towels.
Perfect for beach!
It packs down very small and works excellent as a light blanket on planes. I have taken it to the beach and used it as a beach blanket. It is absorbent and dries very quickly. I’d recommend this towel and will be buying another towel from turkishbox. Thank you!LeslieM (verified owner) – December 4, 2019

Basically, it is a towel. Probably the reason they referred to it as a “robe” is that you can wrap it around you over your swimsuit or in a spa (or like a parero). This dries quickly, & eliminates the yucky feeling of laying on a plastic lounge chair. It is quite large (see the dimensions) so it covers a lot. You can wrap a baby in it to keep him/her warm. It packs well because it is thin. There are many other uses such as laying down on the ground for a picnic, at an outdoor theater if it gets chilly, in the car, placing a baby on it to change diapers,etc.
We would recommend you to hang it dry. It dries real quick. You can put in dryer for no more than ten minutes then hang to dry. The dryer for a short period of time seems to take the wrinkles out without shrinking the fibers.
This one is 50% hand loomed. We have 100% hand loomed pestemal towels too.
Yes, definitely. Cacala pestemals (Turkish Towels) are soft enough to use for baby. They will be even softer after a couple washes.

No. Only 100% cotton.
Since the temperature in a drying machine depends on many variables, the majority of textiles companies do not recommend this method of drying.
These are 95×175 cm (37×70 inches). You can compare it to the size of a bath sheet. It’s the shape of a large towel. Not as big as the beach blanket towels but a normal big bath towel.
They are perfect for the beach. They are bigger than most beach towels and they dry super fast. And they are thick enough for the beach yet still pack up small.
