Click on the images to see the full detail.
The Hamam (Turkish Bath) is a combination of steam bath, sauna, body cleansing and massage. In Turkey, the Hamam is a place for physical and spiritual cleansing and relaxation.
It is a traditional example of Turkish hospitality with its staff (tellak) on hand to help and guide through the experience.
This unique set has been carefully compiled to re-create the authentic Turkish Bath experience in your own home.
It consists of:
A wicker box plaited according to traditional Anatolian custom.
A "Peştemal" (cotton linen loincloth), traditionally used to cover the body in the hamam and also used as a towel. It has the traditional red and white stripes from Bursa (a city with many hamams).
A "Kese" (bath sac) used in cleansing the body and massaging.
A bath porringer (copper base with a tin plate finish) decorated with traditional designs from the South-East of Turkey.
Olive-Oil soap manufactured according to traditional methods.
A specially prepared hand-out to guide you through the experience.
Each Set is made to order.
