When you purchase a Turkish towel from SOLAQUA, you're getting the real deal. Our towels are hand loomed from 100% Turkish cotton or linen by a group of traditional artisians located in Kayseri, Turkey.
Washing: To maximise the absorbency of your towel and soften it, we recommend washing before use. Wash in warm water on a gentle spin. Tip: Add a cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle once a month. This will restore your towel to full absorbency. The vinegar will remove excess detergent & oil that builds up after successive washing. Do not bleach.
Drying: We recommend air drying for best results, however a tumble dry on a cool to medium setting is also fine.
Ironing: Regular ironing, steam or dry, can be performed at a low setting. Ironing at high temperatures may damage the cotton fibres, decreasing the softness and lifespan of your towel.
A pull or snag: If your towel has snagged and pulled out a loop or thread, simply cut the thread/loop off using a pair of scissors. This will not unravel the towel.
Tassle care & maintenance: All tassels on our towels are hand twisted & tied and over time may begin to unravel. This is not a fault in your Towel. These can be easily knotted by making two sections and twisting each section clockwise until fully twisted. Then, take each section and wrap them around each other in an anti-clockwise direction until fully twisted around each other. Simply finish the process by knotting the end.
Note: Your towel comes unwashed and may shrink a few centimetres after the first wash. This is the nature of locally grown first grade Turkish Cotton. We hope you love your Turkish towel.
