CARING FOR YOUR TURKISH TOWEL OR BLANKET
Every purchase comes with wash instructions attached on the tag for you to take a picture of, or save for future reference! At The Artisans Loft, we recommend you wash your Turkish towel in cold or warm water, on a gentle cycle, with similar colors and fabrics. Pro tip: wash all your like-colored towels and blankets together for the best results and longevity! Don't use bleach or fabric softener, as this can break down the cotton and compromise the integrity. One of the perks of Turkish cotton and weave is how quick-drying they are. That being said, we recommend hang drying them to help preserve the towel. If you wish to machine dry your towel, do so on low to medium heat. Use a warm iron, or steamer to smooth out any unwanted wrinkles.
If your towel gets caught on something and a thread gets pulled a bit out, don't worry! You can cut off the piece of thread that is popping out. As your towel is woven, cutting this single piece will not cause it to unravel. After a wash, you may also find that a piece of fringe has come undone. Again, this is an easy fix, and can happen often due to the handmade nature of these textiles! Simply separate the threads into two equal sections. Twist each section in a clockwise motion. Then twist both sections together in a counter-clockwise motion. Tie the knot off at the end and you're good to go!
