Not All Turkish Towels Are Made Alike

Not All Turkish Towels Are Made Alike

Posted by on

Not all Turkish towels are made alike.  

Let's begin by considering where we source our products from.  All of our Turkish textiles are hand loomed in Buldan Turkey. We believe in fair trade, which is why our prices vary by design. The more complex a weaving pattern is, the longer it takes to weave, and the more the maker is paid. Each of our towels and blankets is therefore priced accordingly. 

We value the amount of energy and skill that goes into creating these beautiful textiles. Our philosophy is simple: we buy directly from the artisans who make our products, and the artisans set the prices for their goods and are paid fairly for their work. Our products are made one at a time by hand. 

At Stray & Wander, we believe in the beauty of imperfection and that handmade products carry within them the energies of their maker.  By committing to ethical business practices and fair trade, we are helping to preserve the traditional methods of production that we value.

Our towels and blankets are made from 100% organically grown Turkish cotton which is known as the highest quality cotton in the world. This special cotton is extremely absorbent and drys exceptionally quickly, making our towels the perfect choice for the beach, the bathroom, the yoga studio, and the gym. The majority of our towels and blankets are dyed using 100% natural dyes.

Not only does it matter to us who makes our products, how they are made and under what conditions, these considerations inform every decision we make as a business. We believe that there are ethical ways of doing business. This steadfast belief is at the core of who we are as a company, who we are as global citizens and who we are as individuals. 

We are extremely proud to be able to offer our customers this line of premium Turkish towels and blankets and can proudly say that we know where our products come from, who makes them, how our artisans are treated and that only the highest quality of organically grown cotton is being used.
