The peshtemal features the hand at its heart, a motif that symbolises creativity in the Kilim weaving tradition of Central Anatolia. Placed around the hand are peacock feathers. In India the peacock symbolises beauty, peace and joy. When used in the home, the feathers are believed to bring prosperity. Our 100% cotton peshtemals are highly absorbent, light and dry very quickly. They are ideal for travelling, as well as use at home or by the pool.
