MAYDE began as an idea some years ago and was finally put into action in 2012. The concept was simple - what is something everyone needs/uses and what can be done to make it more unique and accessible?
That's where MAYDE's Turkish towels (better known as peshtemals) came into play.
Turkish towels were historically used in Turkish hammams (baths). Most commonly made from cotton (and more recently linen and cotton/bamboo blends), they are wider (approx. 80cm x 180cm dependant on design) and lighter than your usual terry towels, which presents many benefits. They are:
- Fast drying
- Easy to travel with
- Eco-efficient (takes up less room in washing machines)
- Increased softness after each wash
- Space saving
- Versatile in use
