For many years I believed that the damp-towel scent used to be simply a part of lifestyles. I’d used terry-cloth towels post-swimming for years (on the seaside, on the pool, and lakeside), and it took hours for them to dry, even if they have been frolicked within the sunshine.
Then I met a chum of a chum who completely used Turkish towels. She gushed about how quick-drying, light-weight, and simple to pack they have been. So after I noticed the Huckberry Mediterranean Turkish Towel (a Wirecutter favourite) on sale for Top Day, I snapped up 4 of them.

Turkish towels have been used way back to the 1600s to supply privateness in Turkish baths. They’re maximum continuously woven in Turkey of 100% long-staple cotton, which produces a smoother, more potent yarn to create a smooth and light-weight towel.
“My folks lived in Turkey when I used to be born, so my mother at all times had a host of Turkish towels readily available for our seaside days,” says senior replica editor Holly Gallo. “The Huckberry model is hand-loomed in Turkey, and it’s simply as light-weight and lovely as those from my adolescence. They’re so stunning, actually, that I now use them as bathtub towels as smartly.”
