Camino de Santiago towel/scarf – lightweight and versatile

A Turkish hammam towel/scarf is lightweight, absorbs extremely well and dries faster than bullet. That’s why hammam has become a camino favorite for us

Come to think of it, I hated the sticky feeling I was left with from the synthetic micro fiber towel I started out my hiking life with. Luckily, four years ago I discovered traditional Turkish hammam towels and since then, there’s been no turning back to micro fiber…

With this camino style hammam towel I have 6 things in 1 – better than a Kinder egg – I have:

  • a comfortable towel
  • a scarf
  • a skirt
  • a Bedouin style shade provider – splendid on hot sunny days
  • something to sit on during my breaks
  • a curtain for privacy in my bunk bed

After walking with a hammam for the past four years, I designed my own Camino de Santiago version. The design is inspired by the classic arrows and scallop shells of Camino de Santiago. But the style’s classic enough to go really everywhere.
