House of Jude

Luxurious Bamboo Turkish Towels for baby, child and home.
  • House of Jude was born out of a love of Turkish towels and a need for a cozy towel for baby Jude! I have always adored wrapping myself in my Turkish towels, known as peshtemals. They are super soft and absorbent, and they dry quickly. They roll up to be quite compact making them perfect for the pool and for traveling. Wanting these towels for my precious little guy, I set out to find Jude a hooded baby towel made from this traditional Turkish weave but they were nowhere to be found. That's where House of Jude came to be. Our towels are ethically made by hand in Istanbul, Turkey. And as a tree-hugging, granola-crunching family, there was no doubt that they were to be made from ultra soft, and environmentally friendly bamboo. You and your babe need to snuggle up in our towels and blankets, and we know you will love them as much as we do! xo Kristina + Jude
    • What makes these towels unique? These are towels you have to feel to believe! The Turkish peshtemal weave is super absorbent and dries quickly. The luxurious bamboo adds so much softness and warmth. Use yours as a towel, blanket, scarf or nursing cover - we have used them as all four in one day!
    • The bath towel is so big! Is it only for kids? No! Adults LOVE our oversized bath towels! Some even snuggle up in them as blankets. We keep one in our diaper bag as a stroller blanket for Jude, to throw on as a scarf on a chilly day, or to use as a nursing cover.
    • The towels are made in Turkey. Are they fair-trade? We care about human rights as much as you do. The towels are hand-loomed and sewn in a small factory by adults being paid fair wages and under safe working conditions as outlined by the labour laws in Turkey.
    • How do I wash my towel? The more you wash the towel the softer and more absorbent it becomes! Machine wash on cold and hang or lay flat to dry. Snuggle and repeat!
    • How are handmade towels consistently uniform? We love that our towels are hand-crafted in the traditional Turkish weave of peshtemal towels. For this reason, natural variations and imperfections may occur in the towels. We think this makes them unique and beautiful!
    • One of my tassels has come undone in the wash. How can I retie it? Due to the softness of the bamboo and the handmade nature of the towel, it is not uncommon for a tassel to unravel. Retying instructions: 1-Divide the tassel in two equal sections. 2-Individually twist each of the two sections to the right. 3-Twist the right section over the left and keep twisting until you reach the bottoms. 4-Tie a knot at the end.¬†
