There is absolutely no doubt that Turkish towels will add greatly to your home comfort level and are excellent investments for long time luxury. But are you aware that these towels are available in various different weavings and also sizes? This certainly is a spot of bother and to take you out of the corner here is a brief introduction to all different types of Turkish cotton towels and for what purposes they are best suitable for.
As a matter of fact they can be broadly classified in two ways: according their weaving and their sizes and usage. Taking into consideration how they are weaved and what special feature is associated with them, the types of Turkish Cotton Towels you will find available in the market are:
Towels for Home
- Sahara: Weaved and finished with hand tied cotton tassels which are also natural and un-dyed these are the softest towel around and perfectly suitable for bathrobes or bathroom usage.
- Sahel: comes with diamond styleweaving and excellent for indoor use.
- Diamond and Herringbone are other popular weaving patterns those also make sft and comfortable towels great for bathroom use.
Towels for beach
Compared to towels for home use, towels those are specially made for beaches have a weave pattern that repels sand particles and also dries faster. Outdoor travels also weighs a little less than those designed for home but are no less comfortable and smooth on your skin.
Many other styles and designs are now also being introduced like the Maghreb towels with African style textile patterns or Kilim towels with Anatolian motifs or designs. You can choose any of the outdoor varieties as per your colour and design preferences and look a lot more stylish the next time you go to the beach.
Classification according to their size
Here are the different types of Turkish Towels that you may require for your home:
- Bath Towels
- Beach towels
- Hand towel
- Wash clothes
- Guest towels
Beach towels are normally larger than the bath towels or other types for they serve a specific purpose. But hope you have understood by now that the type of cotton used and type of weaving are the two prominent factors those determine the quality and suitable use of a towel. One should always prefer towels made with ringspun cotton for they are the softest and also the most durable. In this type of cotton the strongest threads are created by tightly twisting both longer and shorter threads together. Cotton fibres are also specially treated before they are spun into earns.
Another factor that determines the quality and softness of a towel is whether it a single looped weaving or double looped. Towels with double looped weaving feels more luxurious and dense on skin than the single looped ones. But the single looped towels are found to dry quicker and if you intend to use your towel outdoor like in the beach or by the pool side, a single loop variance is going to be the better choice.
