Peshtemal Collection is a joint company of two sisters, Aslihan and Gizem who moved to the United States in 2006 from Istanbul to get their higher education.
While working and studying at Northeastern University, they have gained much interest in women entrepreneurship, attended numerous seminars and workshops, traveled all around the country, and tried not to miss any opportunity that empowers women in our society.
Meanwhile, they travel to Turkey once a year, to visit family and friends and start bringing traditional Turkish peshtemals as gifts. As their friends fell in love with the colors and the unique patterns of peshtemals, as well as the story behind, it was inevitable to bring these unique pieces to Boston, and give life to Peshtemal Collection.
Gizem and Aslihan are very passionate about the environment, ethically manufactured products, unique colors, and patterns as they're the core aspects of Peshtemal Collection.
Today Peshtemal Collection has opened numerous pop-ups and been featured at Boston's best small business organizations, SOWA, ICA, West Elm, and Boston Women's Market.
