Step back into a time where quality, natural and organic were not choices, they just were. To a time where craftsmanship and the work of a true artisan was appreciated.
At Jennifer's Hamam, we work with some of the last families and individuals that still have a weaving tradition in Turkey. All the textiles we sell are woven on old-style-shuttled looms using natural materials such as, GOTS certified organic cotton, linen, bamboo and silk. All fibers used are Turkish and all the artisans are Turkish, weaving in Turkey.
Just 17 short years ago, weaving villages around Turkey were chocker-block full of many different kinds of old-style shuttled looms. Even in Istanbul, looms making the famous looped Turkish towels could be found.
Most of these people between then and now have gone bankrupt and lost their livelihoods in weaving. Where these people went and what they are doing now, we do not know because, sadly, we never had the chance to meet them.
The families and individuals left in a few of these villages scattered from the south to the southeast of Turkey, work with us directly to create beautiful woven towels, pestamel, kese, robes, bedcovers, table & bed linens in a quality that you can no longer find in the country and in designs unique to Jennifer's Hamam.
Come explore, learn and enjoy your journey with us into a quality from the past!
