If you’ve never used a Turkish-style hammam towel before, it takes some getting used to. It starts out rougher than traditionally plush bath towels, becoming more absorbent and cottony over time (it’s actually 100 percent cotton woven in Tunisia). Here’s a secret: Hammam towels actually make terrific beach towels, when you’re really just looking for a surface to lie down on, rather than a cloud to wrap yourself in. We’re a fan of these multi-striped versions, but there’s an even cheaper $32 hammam towel in white, too.
Original Price: $70
