"Effortless style, authenticity and easy-going living are at the heart of the Eshma Mardini philosophy. These positive values shine through at every level, from traditional craftsmanship to made-to-last quality, use of natural materials and responsible production.

"Peshtemal textile collection is the central point of Eshma Mardini product line. It combines modern style and world- known quality of Turkish textiles with deep history and heritage of traditional craft. First peshtemals were used in Turkish steam baths and house d├ęcor 600 years ago. Each design and color combination conveys the story of specific region.

"Peshtemal is the most versatile textile in the world! Hand-woven from 100% genuine Turkish cotton, this durable fabric is light enough to be used as a tablecloth or shawl. The fast-drying knit also makes it ideal as a towel when you need to dry off after swim. Take it to Spa, Bath, Gym, Pool, Beach, Fitness class, Yoga, Yacht, Picnic, or just cuddle in its coziness at home. It takes up far less space than a regular towel, so it is the best choice for travel, and a convenient option for guest bathroom. This natural fabric is also great for a baby care.


"Find the perfect cover up for all your beach going needs. Eshma Mardini® offers beach dresses & tunics that look great anywhere. Shop our flirty rompers or comfy shirt dresses to throw over your bikini."

"Great towel! good size for a beach or to wrap around like a sarong. Holds up to washing well. Thicker than some turkish towels I have seen. This is the best price I have seen for them as well and I shopped around on prices and quality reviews before purchasing. Very pleased with my purchase and plan to get more colors."

"I have now bought this towel in almost every color. It is fantastically versatile: towel, beach mat, pareo, shawl, blanket, scarf, etc... It's easy to pack and I keep two in my car. I wash them in cold water and dry in the dryer -- no colors running and no shrinkage (that I noticed). They definitely get softer with use. "
