Etsy Love

I recently fell in love with an Etsy shop, Turkish Towel, and I love the story behind the craftsmanship. A retired couple in Turkey work together to handmake cotton towels with a traditional wooden hand weaving loom. Take a look, they are simply beautiful.

I'm already thinking of all the uses - tablecloth, table runner, pashmina, picnic blanket, beach sarong.....or how beautiful would they look hung on hooks in a bathroom? Oh and did I mention how affordable they are?
