Colorful pestemals

I recently bought these gorgeous pestemals to use as bath towels.  They are hamam towels, handmade in Turkey and available through myturkishtextiles.com. They are not expensive, they packed down so well that the postage from the US distributor was amazingly acceptable, they look great (you should see what I didn't buy!) and it's great to support artisans.
See how dry the ground is?  5mm rain is all we've had for the past 6 weeks. Back to the days of endless drought.

And here's another artisan - bit tatty.
