HISTORY OF PESHTEMAL

The peshtemal became even more culturally significant in the 17th century. In the Ottoman palace, the royal women and courtiers wanted peshtemals that were increasingly beautiful and ornate. They hired weavers to design beautifully decorated peshtemals. Also According to the ancient Turkish traditions when a couple decided to marry they were giving to each other bath set as a gift.
