Ah, vacation - was too fun, too short...and we want to brag about something. While on vacation, our visitors raved about our new towels. Our latest tastemaker, Michele Kafer Gultan, the VIP Concierge of Turistambul, filled us in on a great place for towels before we left, Jennifer's Hamam. We're talking organic cotton, linen, and silk, all sourced in Turkey! Hidden away in 2 stores in the Arasta Bazaar (the fantastic, less crowded alternative to the Grand Bazaar) near the Blue Mosque, Jennifer's Hamam employs 10 families of weavers to create decadent fluffy towels, pestamels, and robes, in a large variety of colors and patterns. And we may be back at work, but when we use our new towels in the bathroom, we're reminded of our time on the beach (sigh).
