House of Jude was borne out of a love of Turkish towels and a need for a cozy towel for baby Jude! The founder, Kristina, always adored wrapping herself in Turkish towels, known as peshtemals. They are super soft and absorbent, and they dry quickly making them naturally antibacterial. They roll up to be quite compact so they are perfect for the pool and for traveling.
Their towels are ethically made by hand in Turkey. And as a tree-hugging, granola-crunching family, they had no doubt that they were to be made with ultra soft, and environmentally friendly bamboo and Turkish cotton. Cotton grown in Turkey is of the best in the world - the superior growing conditions (more rainy days than sunny days) mean less water and few or no pesticides.
