Turkey suffered its strongest earthquake since 1939 earlier this year. The devastation is not over, and the people still suffer from a lack of food, water, and housing. ALL profits from the sale of Obakki’s Turkish products are being returned to our artisan community to help them rebuild. In addition, our foundation can receive direct donations here: Earthquake Relief
These highly absorbent, lightweight beach and bath textiles are made with certified organic cotton and linen. Because of the weight, they require less energy to wash and there is less material used in the creation – making them a sustainable, luxurious choice. They are pre-shrunk in water with organic laurel soap to dust off the rawness of the loom, and you may catch the lovely scent of laurel in the air on early use.
There is nothing like stepping from the bath – or from the ocean, lake, or pool – and wrapping yourself in Turkish comfort.
Our Beach & Bath textiles are handwoven on the Turquoise Coast of Turkey by local artisans who remain faithful to their artisanal skills – skills they inherited through the teachings of ancestral tradition. Combining contemporary design inspired by Mediterranean and African cultures, these artisans engage in ethical production using sustainable materials to support local economies. This is a product that not only looks good, but it feels good – in more ways than one.
