Teemas are made from 100% Organic Turkish cotton, therefore they shrink a small amount under heat. If you'd prefer your Teema stay its exact, original size, please follow the recommended care instructions below. If you don't mind a small amount of shrinking natural to 100% cotton items, then feel free to wash and dry however you please.
Machine wash cold on delicate or gentle cycle, and hang or tumble-dry on low
P.S. / Insider Tip: We at Teema wash and dry our Teemas on standard wash and high heat dry cycles and they handle it just fine :)
Did you know? Teemas are made from 100% Organic Turkish cotton, which gets softer and more absorbent with use and wash, much like your favorite old cotton flannel.

Of the 8 I’ve ordered, this is my favorite. I use it as a shawl/blanket when I travel.
Soft, beautiful and versatile.
A lot of these reviews talk about using these towels as blankets and shawls, and sure they work for that purpose, but I want to talk about them as TOWELS.
First I tested them on a beach vacation, and sure enough they get you dry, they dry off quickly and they do shed the sand better than terry towels. Including that post-swim wet sand that can really dig into terry towels. Same great performance at home (minus the sand).
Ecologically speaking, these use way fewer resources to launder, by which I mean I get more uses out of them between washes because they don’t get musty like terry towels. And they need waaaay less dryer time. It’s late summer as I’m writing this and I have not had to machine dry these once - I hang them on the clothesline or just pop them on our bathroom towel hooks during rainy weather and they dry up nicely.
I’ve bought 2 different styles, the ones I bought for the beach are lighter weight and maybe you wouldn’t prefer those on chilly winter days. These diamanté towels feel a little thicker and I think we’ll probably use these more in cooler weather.
Lastly, storage. I do not have much storage space in my apartment and I can fit 2-3 times as many of these Teema towels in my linen cabinet as terry ones! (Attached photo shows 2 full-sized towels folded). I have now donated most of my terry towels (I kept a couple just in case) and only want to use these Teema towels going forward.
Lastly, they are just so pretty, I love looking at them. That’s reason enough to buy a couple.
