Teema was born in a Cambodian night market on a backpacking trip in 2017, out of the frustration caused by our musty microfiber "travel" towels purchased on Amazon prior to the trip. After a chance encounter with a vendor selling Turkish Towels, an idea was born.
After encountering Turkish towels for the first time in Cambodia, we quickly realized just how useful they truly are. Not only do they make great travel towels, but they're also throws, shawls, scarves, and wraps, they look great around the house, they dry quickly, they're portable, they're stylish... the list goes on! We were obsessed, and wondered why we'd never seen them before. So, we went to Turkey.
Many of our products are crafted by a network of artisanal weavers located in a small mountain town in Southwestern Turkey. Many of these weavers work out of their own homes, on looms that have been with their families for decades.LEARN MORE
