Apart from being functionally and visually appealing, Turkish towels are also eco-friendly. They are handcrafted with 100% natural bamboo fibre, non-GMO (Genetically- Modified-Organism) cotton, and vegetal (plant-based) dyes. Upon learning about that, we were determined to bring these hidden gems back to Malaysia and introduce Peshtemals to more people.
Thereon, we joined up with Connect One Threads (COT), a social enterprise
that connects and collaborate with global artists, conscious designers, ethical producers and organic farmers to create the best clothing for the world. And the journey of Real.m as an ethical lifestyle brand started.
Today, apart from towels, we have also used the same Peshtemal material to develop clothing for casual wear, such as ponchos and hoodies. They are extremely suitable for dwellers and travellers in the tropics. We have also produced a collection of throws and blankets that would instantly help transform an ordinary interior into one of unique style.
At Real.m, we hold high respect for the mother earth and celebrate all things real — real people, real experiences and real materials.
