The Pestemal towel has been evolving over the last 600 years to become the towel of choice both for its highly absorbent and ultra-quick drying properties, but also for its comfort and elegance. Hand loomed from natural fibres of cotton, it is lightweight, smooth and yet durable. Its extensive use over the centuries means that it has undergone many modifications and refabrication to be exactly the preferred multipurpose material it is today.
While durable and long-lasting, to the skin Aelia Anna Pestemal is warm, gentle and comforting, making it ideal to be worn as a bathrobe, shawl or scarf. However, it takes up very little space, is lightweight and easy to carry, so is the ideal travel companion and easy to roll up for an on-the-go blanket, beach towel, bag, clutch, bed throw, and cushion. Its use reaches as far as your imagination!
Its pure cotton base allows us to weave elegant designs into them with a Mediterranean touch. From traditional and conservative, to stand out modern we have created a whole range of designs for various uses. Our designs often combine patterns such as the Wave and Meandros styles with other natural themes and ideas.
We want to bring summer alive in our designs, so have named each one after a Greek island, where each design reflects something of the character of the island it has been named after. Visit the islands for yourself and see how exclusive hotels, beach bars, restaurants and shops have enhanced their image by having us embroider their name and logo into our Pestemal towels.
