Hammamas - 100% Cotton, Super-Absorbent and Quick Drying Towels (Review)

Have you heard of Hammamas - the clever cotton towel? I had not heard of them until a few weeks back. Hammamas work closely with traditional weavers in rural Turkey. They use premium quality cotton and traditional weaving techniques (hand woven on traditional looms) to create high quality, soft, absorbent towels.

When I received my Hammamas towel a while back, the first thing that caught my attention was the lovely, cheery colour of the towel. Bright yellow stripes and a dash of aqua - that's how the towel was described on the website and that's how it was. Bold, bright, cheery and perfect for taking along on a holiday. The towel is very thin, similar to the Indian cotton, handloom towels that I have used. These Hammamas towels are made from 100% Turkish cotton using traditional weaving techniques and come beautifully packaged in a water-proof zip-lock pouch. The Hammamas Reef towel that I have measures 180cm by 100cm - which is quite large! As with other cotton handloom towels, you need to wash the towel before the first use as washing improves the softness and absorbency of the towel.

Hammamas scores well in terms of absorbency - absorbs well and quickly. Equally impressive is its drying time - it dries much quicker than a regular towel and the colours do not bleed. It is a high quality towel that met all the expectations I had from it.

However, that is not all. Hammamas is super versatile. It is much more than an ordinary towel. You can use the Hammamas in so many different ways - as a scarf, a sarong or a beach dress. You can even use it as a blanket (works for my petite frame) or a picnic mat. With the beautiful range of colours these towels come in, they can also double up as tablecloth - perfect for a garden party. All you need is a bit of imagination and you can find a hundred and one ways to use your Hammamas towel.

Final word: The Hammamas towels are super absorbent, dry quickly, are thin (thereby taking up less space while packing), can be used in a multitude of ways and come in a range of bright and bold colours. At £25.00, this Reef towel from Hammamas is a good value for money.

What do you think? Have you used cotton, handloom towels?
