water wear

All TURQUESE water wear is made with 100% woven cotton that is printed, preshrunk and colorfast. Our fabric is washed with three different processes, and becomes progressively softer with each, to achieve a refined, supple finish. We hope our water wear will see plenty of sunshine, salt water and chlorine. With exposure to those elements, all natural fibers will inevitably—but gently—lose some of their color.

Suggested TURQUESE water wear care instructions:

  • Machine wash light and bright water wear in warm water with similar colors; do not exceed 30C/85F
  • Machine wash dark water wear with similar colors in cold water
  • Tumble dry on medium heat or line dry
  • Warm iron pressing optional
  • Never use bleach products
  • Dry cleaning permitted
  • linen shirts

    The TURQUESE Carl shirt is made with 100% Italian linen, a wonderfully light—but not transparent—fabric. Linen is highly breathable and will feel just as sensational against your skin on a hot afternoon as on a cool evening. Designed to look elegant whether tucked or untucked, the gently curved hem is the right length for any occasion. Our fit is a modified European silhouette; it is relaxed, without being baggy, and fits most body types well.

    Suggested TURQUESE linen shirt care instructions:

  • Machine or hand wash all light colors in warm water; do not exceed 30C/85F
  • Machine or hand wash all bright and dark colors in cold water
  • Tumble dry on medium heat or line dry
  • Steam iron pressing recommended
  • Non-chlorine bleach products may be used on white shirts only
  • May be professionally washed and pressed
  • cotton jersey shirts

    The TURQUESE Stefano shirt is made with 100% Italian cotton jersey, a wonderfully light—but not transparent—fabric. Cotton jersey is highly breathable and will feel just as sensational against your skin on a hot afternoon as on a cool evening. Designed to look elegant whether tucked or untucked, the gently curved hem is the right length for any occasion. Our fit is a modified European slim silhouette; it is tailored to gently fit closer to the body than the Carl shirt. The Stefano is for those that seek a slimmer alternative for day or evening wear.

    Suggested TURQUESE cotton jersey care instructions:

  • Machine or hand wash all light colors in warm water; do not exceed 30C/85F
  • Machine or hand wash all bright and dark colors in cold water
  • Line dry only
  • Steam iron pressing recommended
  • Non-chlorine bleach products may be used on white shirts only
  • May be professionally washed and pressed or dry cleaned
  • towels

    TURQUESE signature towels are made with 100% cotton, colorfast 500-gram terry and individually embroidered by skilled artisans. When you receive your towels you will notice that a biodegradable plastic film covers the surface of the embroidery. This is not a defect; the film secures and protects the fabric during sewing. To remove it, follow the suggested washing instructions that appear below. Do not attempt to remove the plastic film by hand. All towels that appear on this website were washed before being photographed, therefore the film is no longer visible.

    All high quality new towels—including ours—shed a significant amount of lint during their first wash and dry. For any questions or further information please email us at info@turquese.com

    Suggested TURQUESE towel care instructions:

  • Machine wash all colors in cold water
  • Wash separately two times before mixing with other laundry
  • Tumble dry medium-high
  • Line dry optional
  • Never use bleach products
