Granny had a hope chest which she had meticulously prepared with hopes, dreams and loving care throughout her maidenhood and carefully stored all her life and left to us as her legacy; we opened our granny’s trunk; and got lost in the old pictures and the beauties she has crafted:

We opened our eyes on a cool summer morning on white, soap scented sheets.
While kitchen was busy preparing for the day, we mingled with the kids who were playing joyfully on the street.
We washed up in the bathroom heated with the stove with sparkling fire, we wrapped and dried ourselves with flowing peshtemals.
We had our afternoon tea with the neighbors, served on handmade tablecloth.
Garden table was set with china from the cupboard and the carefully laid tablecloth; and sound of laughs were heard while the plates and glasses filled with treats.
We fell asleep, our heads on the colorful embroidered pillows over the sofa.
Then in our grandmother’s lap we were carried to the sweet-scented bed, and wrapped up in soft bedding.
With a smile on our faces, we let ourselves fell into another dream with peace and happiness.

The peshtemal, a gift from Anatolian culture to the world, is defined as a rectangular woven cloth used for covering the body in traditional Turkish baths. The peshtemal tradition, which has stood the test of time and survives today with its delicate texture, high absorbency, fast drying and lightness, comes together with the Buldans' concept of production and design which brings authenticity to a universal platform.

With its timeless designs combining natural fibers such as high-quality cotton, linen, and bamboo using state-of-the-art looms, Buldans breathes new life into peshtemals and expands their areas of use. Emerging from the Turkish bath ritual, the peshtemal appears in bathrooms, saunas, pools, gyms and at the beach. It also becomes an essential part of your journeys, thanks to its space-saving delicate texture.

Buldans’ peshtemals, with their harmonized designs and colors, are also appreciated for their elegance that brings the ease of use of a peshtemal anywhere that people and water come together. In addition to their natural color palette reflecting simplicity and purity, peshtemals in trendy cheerful colors can also be used as a pareo, dress or scarf.

Reviving the peshtemal with thousands of years of weaving culture and experience, Buldans appeals to our senses and emotions with its unique and elegant designs.
