I ran across these beautifully patterned and colored towels at the Etsy store 'bathstyle' recently. It turns out they are "pestemal towels"—the traditional (super absorbent!) cotton towels of Turkish baths. Thinking big picture, though, I can totally see these babies getting put to other uses: a lightweight shawl, a beach coverup, a covering for a boring or threadbare couch, or a makeshift tablecloth. The possibilities are endless!
