Stories of You
The Loomia’s towels are hand-loomed, made completely of cotton, linen and bamboo. To maximize absorbency and softness, we recommend you soak the towels in warm water and then hang them to dry in an open space.
Why do I need to soak my towels in cold water before using them?
Soaking them allows the cotton fibers to bloom (blooming is more of a term for flowering above ground, so maybe another fits better?) and begin to reach its maximum absorbency. After that, each machine wash will make them softer and more absorbent!
We recommend a warm wash.
Line dry, and avoid tumble drying if possible.
Use only a warm, gentle setting when ironing.
Do not dry clean.
Avoid fabric softeners. Never use bleach or fabric softener on your hand-loomed textiles. It is best to wash towels with natural detergents — stay away from all of the toxic gunk out there!
Why don’t I need to use bleach or fabric softener on the towels?
Bleach or fabric softener actually makes Turkish towels less absorbent. Because Turkish towels are made from natural cotton, your Turkish towels smell wonderful. However, bleach and fabric softener will stop the fibers from doing their work. Run a regular wash cycle. Organic cotton textiles will become naturally softer with each wash!

If you've never used one, you’ve been missing out on some exquisite, post-bath pampering! Peshtemals are truly some of the most versatile pieces you could own.
A peshtemal (also spelled pestemal, peshtamal or pestamal; in Turkish, peştamal), is commonly called Turkish towel, bath towel, hammam towel or beach towel. They are the traditional, flat-woven towels used in the Turkish baths (hammams) and hand-woven on looms in Turkey. Peshtemals are woven from high quality Turkish cotton, bamboo and linen fibers.
Peshtemals are well designed, lightweight, easy to carry, easy to clean, very absorbent, quick-drying and very versatile. This makes them perfect for traveling or just everyday use! You can use them to lay on the beach, but also as a blanket, throw, baby wrap, scarf, picnic blanket, table cloth, table runner or bed runner. Whatever you desire!
