Woven on an Automatic Dobby Loom, the Essential Weave is the first weave, the OG, and the ultimate classic. Most similar to the original Turkish Towels (peshtemals) invented in the 17th century, the Essential Weave is lightweight, sleek, and durable. It's yarn dyed so color will remain consistent throughout years of use, and it has 30 yarns per centimeter which is our tightest weave, for a smooth and crisp feel. At 190 GSM, the Essential Weave is the lightest of our weaves in terms of weight/thickness, but not without purpose! The lighter weave means its the fastest drying weave, the easiest/smallest packed weave, and the most durable weave.
Like all of our weaves, the Essential Weave is flat-woven and made from 100% long-staple Turkish cotton, meaning it will get softer and more absorbent with use and wash (as the long fibers in the cotton open up), much like your favorite old flannel.
We call the Essential Weave the "do it all" weave, because well, it does it all. Perfect for those especially on-the-go, those new to Turkish towels in general, and those looking for the most efficient weave, should look no further than The Essential Weave.

- Teemas are made from 100% Turkish cotton, therefore they shrink a small amount under heat. If you'd prefer your Teema stay its full, original size, please follow the recommended care instructions. If you don't mind a small amount of natural shrinkage, then feel free to wash and dry however you please!
Insider Tip: We at Teema wash and dry our Teemas on standard wash and high heat dry cycles and they handle it just fine outside of some initial shrinkage :)

I love mine so I am giving as gifts to people I know that frequent pools and the beach. Pretty and a great cover up!
Wanted to buy for my person this year. Two times when I went to pay it said my credit cards were expired, Incorrect, as they were both good, so I missed the sale price. I kept checking, but the one I wanted was never on sale again before Xmas.
I bought a full priced one because I wanted one. My person was very happy when she opened it, so Xmas was a success. Don't understand why I was "put off" to buy at sale price three weeks before Xmas.
can't wait too use these Beautiful towels!!!!!
