Style Meets Versatility in Your Home
Carrie Banera, The
One of the hottest home décor items these days is the Turkish throw/towel. Not only can they add
an effortlessly, modern touch to your room – they are also super versatile and
durable thanks to their thin, long cotton fibers. In fact, Turkish cotton is
known to get softer and more comfortable over time.
We all thought we had seen it all when it came
to coffee tumblers. Then came the YETI mug. Well, I would say the Turkish throw
is the blanket and towel equivalent.
Here are some of the reasons why Turkish throws and towels are making their way into every home in 2021 and why we love carrying them at The
and Stylish for the Living Room
Drape a Turkish throw over your couch chair or
hang them on a blanket ladder. The quality weave of Turkish cotton means they
hang and drape perfectly anywhere you throw them. Not only do they look stylish
and beautiful in their ‘down time,’ they are the perfect blend of lightweight
and cozy when you want to snuggle up on the couch.
2. Cool and Absorbent in the Bathroom
Turkish throws/towels are also the increasingly
top choice as a hand towel or body towel in the bathroom. You can often find
Turkish towels that have been woven with cool and stylish designs and textures
which can add interest to your bathroom design.
On the flip slide, they are also incredibly
practical in the bathroom since their long fibers are very absorbent, yet they
dry much quicker than regular cotton towels. (Added bonus for reducing drying
time during washing and saving energy!)
in the Bedroom
Looking for something to add that pop of style
or colour to your bedroom décor? Turkish blankets look great thrown on the edge of your bed and can
be an opportunity to add a pop of colour and texture to your basic bedspread. Their cotton fabric also makes them a very welcome and practical option for any sleeper at nighttime. I love
to keeping one in my guest room for that very reason!

for the Kitchen
Turkish hand towels are also popping up in
kitchens as a new favourite hand and dish towel. There is a current home style trend around going
back to the basics. And you will often find that in a Turkish towel. They
provide a simple, understated look to your kitchen and often come in a variety
of different designs.
From a practicality standpoint, again they never
disappoint. Unlike some synthetic fabrics, Turkish towels will get the drying
job done on your dishes and air dry quickly in between uses.
These are a few of the reasons why Turkish towels
and throws are so versatile and growing incredibly quickly in popularity. And
