With the robes being 100% cotton, it is best to launder them with a warm water and warm rinse. Softener is ok to use if you are not using the terry material interior as a drying cloth. Softener takes away the terry's ability to absorb water. We do not recommend using softener on our towels.
Then dry these robes in one of two ways. When the weather is nice, air drying them outside is a wonderful and fresh way to keep them like new. When dry from the outdoors, bring them in and fluff them up in the dryer to bring out their softness. In the winter time, dry the robes on light dry in the dryer. These robes are 100% cotton and care is needed to keep them from shrinkage.
The Turkish towel is known in history as plush comfortable towel used as an expression of hospitality to welcome guests in the home. Turkishtowels.com wanted the highest quality of products for our customers. Therefore, we selected a towel made in Turkey where towel production is a great industry making Turkey one of the three top suppliers in the world. Here is where quality counts.
The other important feature of a Turkish towel is the cotton. Many towels are claimed to be cotton yet are really just terry cloth. Our towels are 100% Egyptian cotton or a blend of 100% Long Staple Fine Cotton. The Egyptian cotton is regarded as the cream of the global crop with the longest staple of any type of cotton - 1 - 1/2 inches or longer. Although originally from Egypt, Cotton is also produced in other countries, but still complies with the original Egyptian standards. Considered the finest cotton in the world, it is soft, silky, strong and less likely to pull or lint.
So, what makes a Turkish towel special? The simple answers are two - made in Turkey (quality) and the finest of all cottons (soft, absorbent, and wonderful to feel).
