We refer to Teema’s as towels because quite literally, they are Turkish towels, but Teemas are different than what most people in the US would consider a towel. Teemas are flat woven, meaning they do not have exposed loops like terry cloth towels do. This means that Teemas use significantly less fabric, which makes them much lighter and faster drying then regular terry cloth towels, at the cost of being slightly less absorbent.
No. Each collection varies slightly in terms of size and weight. Some have a looser weave, making them softer and more blanket-like, like the Labyrinth and Diamanté, while others have a tighter weave making them lighter and more portable, like the Simple and Layers.
Versatility is what truly sets Teemas apart from standard towels. Because they are so much lighter, more portable, and more stylish than terry cloth, they work just as well as blankets, throws, scarves, shawls, wraps, and more!
Outside of being a towel, Teemas next, most obvious use, is as a blanket. Thanks to their large size and softness, Teemas make the perfect on-the-go blanket. Having a picnic at the park? Teema. Sitting around a campfire? Teema. Getting cold in between sets at Coachella? Teema. Trying to sleep on a plane but getting blasted by the AC? Teema. As you can see, Teemas are appearing in a lot of places you’d never expect to see a towel. Hold on... before you go buy one, let us blow your mind a few more times.
SHAWL, SCARF, & WRAP
Thanks to their light fabric and ridiculously stylish designs, Teemas can also be used as several different accessories/articles of clothing. Got enough sun at the beach and need a cover? Teema. At Burning Man and need a shawl? Teema. Live in a warm climate but visiting a cold climate and want to be stylish but down actually own any scarves? You guessed it, TEEMA BABY. Again, it’s clear that Teemas are more than just a towel and are essentially in a league of their own.
A BUNCH OF OTHER THINGS
As you own your Teema, you’ll continue to find many unexpected things you can use it for. Our customers have used them as home decor, yoga mats, table clothes, burkas, and more. The list keeps getting bigger.
Teemas are made from 100% cotton, so if you dry them in high heat, they will shrink a bit. That being said, drying on a tumble dry or low heat setting is recommended. Unlike terry cloth towels, you also have the option to very quickly hang dry your Teema.
