STYLE } Turkish Towel Brights

How cheerful are these hand-loomed Turkish towels in bright, springy colors?

For Salt & Sundry, I source the towels from the fabulous Berna, who lives in Maryland. The Turkish native, her mother (who lives in Turkey) and a friend are the women behind the Antiochia line of textiles. The cotton towels, a mainstay in Turkish spas and European households, are handwoven in Denizli, Turkey.

The hand towels, pictured above, make great kitchen towels or generously oversized napkins, perfect for a summer picnic. I also like wrapping a bottle of wine in one — a host gift bonus!
