Hi. My name is Eylül. I am the founder of the Turkish Cotton Co.
Turkish Cotton Co. was born from this idea of sharing a part of my home – my heart – with those in my life.
After permanently relocating to the United States three years ago from Turkey, I recognized an abundance of low-quality, fast-fashion towels. I noticed fabric discoloration, rips and tears after just a few months, and was tired of wasting money.
I wasn’t the only one. I would travel home to Turkey for brief visits and find myself returning to the United States with suitcases filled with repeated requests for towels from friends, family, and colleagues that were asking for real Turkish towels made by the masters of this art.
These experiences help me to recover perceptions on Turkish towels that people I know. It also made me realize that many people are searching for the unique quality fabrics with differentiated designs without having much knowledge about where to find them and having to pay premium prices.
Why should it be so difficult to access fabrics or towels that are good for your body, good for the environment, and good for the soul?
I envision making these fine fabrics accessible to all who desire to experience high quality Turkish towels and at the same time support the under-appreciated craftspeople in Turkey who create these wonderful items.
Thank you for taking the time to visit us here, and we are thrilled to bring you along on this journey with us.
