Merhaba or hello!
On many of my journeys to Turkey, I discovered the hammam towel, peshtemal in Turkish, a long time ago. I was enthusiastic right away. A multifunctional and versatile product that also looks nice! Nowadays and trend item and for many an essential travel item in suitcase or backpack.
About 10 years ago my Turkish sister-in-law started the production of hammam towels in Turkey. Prior to that period, I accompanied her several times on trips to the textile regions in central Anatolia. We enjoyed the scenery, the food, and the warm welcome we received everywhere. The company has grown in the meantime and has expanded its collection with bathrobes, throws and many more (textile) products.
Production takes place in a small-scale weaving mill surrounded by cotton fields. Craftsmen only use the best quality yarns, cotton or a combination with linen and/or bamboo. The weaving mill uses old technique traditional handloom machines, the yarns are less damaged because of the slower speed of these traditional machines.
The weaving mill in the village offers employment to the residents of the village and the craft of weaving is maintained this way. All the fringes/tassels on the hammam towels are knotted by hand by the village women. Not only work but also a social affair where the latest gossip is exchanged with a glass çay (tea).
The sun is important in my life. I miss this sometimes in our gray and foggy country. Yazgibi means summer or literally summer and time in Turkish.
Luckily I always had the opportunity to travel and get to know other cultures. This is where my love for 'Oriental' stuff comes from. This way I surround myself with a holiday feeling that I like to share with you.

Enjoy the Yazgibi lifestyle.
