Turkish Towels


I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ve noticed a big shift in my spending habits this year… opting to spend more on nice touches for my home vs. my wardrobe.  One of my favorite Christmas gifts this year was a set of Turkish towels from my mom.  We picked them out together at a little shop on the Cape called Midsummer Nights.  I was initially a little nervous because they are so thin.  Would they be warm enough?  Get me fully dry?  They do.  And besides being supremely more chic than regular old towels, they also dry very quickly which is a nice little plus.

I’ve been scouring the Interwebs to find some that are just as pretty as mine {I mean guys… the stripes and tassels are highly important!} and so far, my favorites are from Cuyana.  I’ve also rounded up several more options below.

I’m learning (maybe a little late in life) that nice touches at home are so important.  My home has become my happy place… my sanctuary… {and if you have to shower every day, you may as well have nice towels!}

    Lovely towels! I also just recently realised how important is that you have nice touches in home! It is important to feel good in home all the time!

    The towels look great, you’ve inspired me to see if I can find something similar in the UK!
    The fact that the dry much quicker is a bonus!

    It’s one of those tell-tale signs of getting older when you’d rather treat your home to new items that yourself! But at least with towels you get to wear them, if only for a little while…

    I’ve eyed the Cuyana ones before, but they felt so thin that I was reluctant to give up my plush thick towels. The quick drying factor though is definitely an incentive.

    I think it’s important to invest in nicer things that have value rather than a bunch of cheap things. I also think it’s good to pamper yourself and have a little luxury. I have never used these or even seen them in person, but you got me thinking about them. 🙂

    It’s so true that your home should be your sanctuary. I’m so glad you’re finding that to be the case. And I love these towels and am glad to hear your review. What brand are yours?

    I am SO with you, Grace! I have slowly been redoing my apartment over the last few months and it makes such a difference. I absolutely love being here, home and alone, and in my little space. It should be exactly how you want it to be, with perfect little touches!
