House of Jude. Hand-loomed by talented Turkish artisans, the Oversized Turkish Towel ($45) is House of Jude's most versatile piece. Aside from wrapping yourself in luxurious softness after a bath, this towel can be used at the beach or pool as a sarong, at home as a blanket or day-to-day as a scarf to compliment any outfit. Made from a blend of quality Turkish cotton and bamboo, the unique weave dries quickly and is naturally antibacterial so it will never have that damp towel smell.
