Turkish bathing culture and traditions
The style and expression of this enchanting bathrobe are clearly inspired by Turkish history and traditions.
Many of the great civilizations that, through times, have lived in Turkey, have had a special preference for bathing and bathing rituals. Thus, they made beautiful public bath houses, which they elegantly decorated with marbles, handmade tiles and mosaics – illustrating both flora and fauna as well as various religious figures. As bathing was highly valued and considered as being healthy for both body and mind, most bigger cities had at least one public bath house. If you visit some of Turkeys many archaeological sites, you will still be able to find ruins of some of these amazing bathhouses.
The ancient bathhouses were very sophisticated for the time, having pools, steam baths and even toilets with running water. These millennia old bathing traditions were further developed by the Ottomans, that almost made the bathing experience into an art form, treasuring its purifying and meditative properties, believed to be just as essential for the soul as for the body. In the modern Ottoman style Hamams, you can still enjoy steam bath, scrubbing and massages and you will be sure to return, feeling just like a newborn.
The Turkish adoring of bathing rituals has also affected the way the Turks furnish their private bathrooms. Thus, they are often very aesthetically ornamented with elegant tiles and mosaics and decorated with ceramic vases and bowls containing fragrant potpourri, soaps and bath oils. Naturally, also the towels, bathrobes and mats are chosen with a careful focus on quality, design, motifs and patterns.

Note: In many countries they use cold water detergents for lower washing temperatures, thereby also benefitting the environment.
