All about the culture of the Turkish Bath (Hamam)
This beautiful tin-plated copper hamam bowl,  sitting on one of our new limited edition scarves, was made in the east of Turkey approx 50-60 years ago using a stamping  technique to decorate the surface. The stamping technique is still used today, but this detail can only be seen in the older pieces.  #jennifershamam #hamam #hamambowl #Turkey #cotton #organic #scarf #bath #copper

And let's back up yet another step;  before a weaver can thread and set up their loom, they first have to make the roll of threads.  Here you see threads that have carefully been organized by the weaver to ensure the correct design is achieved.  They are then 'turned' onto an iron bar with pieces of newspaper rolled in for absorption of humidity.  The roll of threads will be set in place at the back of one of our larger towel looms.

Luscious looped, Turkish towels. The true famous Turkish towel was made on looms and even to this day, there is no factory machine, big or small, that can mimic the structure, the strength or last-ability of a loomed towel. Jennifer's Hamam is the last company on earth working with the last few remaining artisanal weavers that know how to do this special technique. What are you waiting for?? #jennifershamam #Turkishtowels #organic #cotton #weaving #weavers #towels #artisan #quality
