"It’s soft, easy to carry, and it dries fast too ... so happy with it!" - S.

This best-selling Turkish towel is a treasured Poko favourite. Its thin, tight weave makes it medium-weight, and the cultural craft hand-woven into each individual twisted-tassel brings a thoughtful touch to this design.

The vibrant colour palette paired with its multifunctional use also renders this Turkish textile a beauty of a beach towel. Its smooth hand-feel and nautical vibe will no doubt inspire the voyager within.

    Wonderful Towels

    These towels are great. They are perfect swim towels as they air dry incredibly quickly after use. They are thinner than I was expecting, but I'm very happy with how they work.

    Thank you for your review, Dawn! ❤️❤️

    Love the towels

    These Turkish towels are much easier on storage space. Gone are the bulky towels. These towels are exciting colours and patterns. They dry you quickly, dry quickly and no musty smell.

    Thank you, Jay!! ❤️

    Great towel

    Absorbant and gets softer with every wash! Wish it was a little thicker.

    Beautiful texture

    I was a bit skeptical getting this towel as a first timer but once it arrived, which it was fast, and I used it, I was happy I ordered it, because even thought it’s thin it dries you fast, it’s soft, easy to carry, and it dries fast too ... so happy with it and the colour I choose! ... I want to get more of these Turkish towels.
