Add texture and contrast to your home decor with bold Turkish blankets! These blankets are extremely versatile. They are ideal as bed spreads, snuggling up on the sofa or even beach blankets. They are made from the same soft, lightweight cotton as Turkish towels, so they are also great travel companions, as take up less space and dry quickly.
Originally used in Turkish baths, Turkish towels, also known as peshtemals or hammam towels, have been traditionally hand-loomed in Turkey for centuries. They are made using extra-long fibers which gives them a lightweight, yet highly absorbent quality. Our Turkish towels have been loomed in Babadağ, a small mountain village in southwest Turkey by a local cooperative. The group prides themselves on keeping the looming tradition alive, utilizing manual craftsmanship without compromising quality. The fringe is hand knotted and they only use eco-friendly, 100% natural fibers such as cotton and bamboo. From start to finish, the entire process is done in house. The patterns feature vibrant motifs conveying the timeless cultural heritage of the Anatolia culture.
SLATE + SALT was founded by an avid traveller who felt the need to share her stories and finds with the world. Through extensive travel to developing countries, Lyndsay fell in love with the people, the cultures, and the craftsmanship of pieces that applied traditional techniques to modern designs.
She recognized the beauty of hand crafted products as opposed to mass produced goods made in factories. She saw an opportunity to give a worldwide customer base to artisans in rural villages.
Through frequent trips and partnerships with Fair Trade cooperatives, she fosters relationships to bring ever-changing handcrafted designs to the globally minded nomad.
