What is Koza? What does Cozy Koza mean?
Cozy Koza is a combination of the English word 'cozy' and the Turkish word 'Koza'. While 'cozy' means 'warm', 'comfortable', and 'enjoyable', 'Koza' is used in Turkish to mean “Cocoon”.
Cozy Koza was born from the idea of creating cozy and cocoon-like towels for people who are looking for natural, stylish, and quality products.
We envision making these fine towels accessible to all who desire to experience premium and traditionally made Turkish towels.
What is Turkish towels?
The Turkish towel, also known as the peshtemal or fouta, has a long and rich history in Turkey. It was originally invented for use in the hamam, or Turkish bath, which has been an important cultural and social institution in Turkey for centuries.
The peshtemal was invented to be the perfect towel for use in the hamam. It is thin, lightweight, absorbent, and dries quickly, making it ideal for use in the hot and humid conditions of the Turkish bath. It is also large enough to wrap around the body, which is important for modesty in the hamam.
The peshtemal is still widely used in Turkey today, both in the hamam and as an everyday towel. It has also become popular around the world, as people have come to appreciate its versatility, absorbency, and softness.
If you've been keeping up with the latest trends in home decor and fashion, you may have noticed the increasing popularity of Turkish towels. These lightweight, absorbent, and stylish towels have become a must-have accessory for many people around the world.
What are they made of?
Cozy Koza Turkish towels made using 100% cotton. We use high-quality cotton that has extra long fibers. This type of cotton is stronger and smoother, making our towels softer, durable, and extra absorbent. They are also quick-drying, which is why they are now a popular choice for most people.
Our towels are different from most of the other beach towels on the market because they are made with extra cotton to increase the absorbency and softness and cotton only. No blend, no microfiber, no 'recycled plastic bottles'.
Cotton is also praised for being a natural and breathable fabric. It is also hypoallergenic, making it a good choice for those with sensitive skin.
Why should I give it a try?
Turkish towels are more than just a towel. They are extremely versatile. We design our towels for versatile use in all seasons. You can use your towel as a beach towel, scarf, shawl, throw, sofa cover, or blanket. They also make a perfect gift for anyone on your list.

A lot of our customers buys Sultan Towels as an affordable and unique gift for baby showers.
Why should I prefer thinner towels over thicker ones?
Good question! There are several reasons why thin towels are better than thick terry towels.
For one, they don't hold onto moisture as much as thick towels do. This means that they won't have time to develop that musty smell that can come from accumulated bacteria.
If you don't wash your terry towels immediately after one use, that unwanted build-up can cause that bacteria to make its way to your skin, which can result in unwanted breakouts on your face or body.
Lastly, our towels will take up less space in your closet which helps maximize your storage space.
I've tried the Turkish towels before, they dry me fully, but my regular towels absorb the water faster.
In a bath or beach towel, too much absorbency means that a towel remains wet long after use. This renders a build-up bacteria after use.
Also, towels that are too absorbent tend to become wet in humid climates all by themselves.
Most towels in the market are too thin because they use less cotton to keep the costs low as possible. This results in low quality, less durable and less absorbent towels.
Our towels provide the perfect balance between absorbency and softness, they also get even softer every wash.
I've purchased and LOVED your Majestic design Sultan towels. My mom also loved its design and I wanted to give one to my mom but now I can’t find the same design on the website. Are they coming back?
We are sorry to hear that you can't find the same design of towel on our website. We strive to be a zero-waste brand while keeping quality and originality at our core. We sell artisan made Turkish towels with releases that arrive in curated & limited drops. Therefore, our designs changes all the time. Once a beach towel design sells out, we don't restock them. That helps us reduce the excess inventory, save the planet, and give our customers the exclusivity and uniqueness they deserve.
However, sometimes a design gets a lot of request. In that case we consider bringing them back for a limited time/amount. Make sure to sign-up to our mailing list so you don't miss our new releases.
It seems like your towels are a bit pricier than other ones on the market. What makes them different?
Unfortunately, quality comes with a price. Our brand, Cozy Koza, isn't part of the fast-fashion culture. All of our towels are artisan-crafted textiles that are handwoven by talented artisans with decades of experience. The quality of the towel and hand-weaving style is better since it is a more traditional and intimate form of art.
The workbench is not a large factory machine that can produce industrial quantities of goods. It is a simple machine using a simple process. We can only produce seven to eight peshtemals a day using the hand weaving technique, but with the workbench, we can produce one item every fifteen to twenty minutes. It’s still a small amount.
Once you try our Turkish towels, you will feel the difference immediately.
