Tara’s World has been catering for the Singaporean community, locals and expats alike, since 2011. They introduced our peshtemals in 2012 and they quickly took off, thanks to their quality and versatility. Contrary to their popularity, noone seems to know the origins of the famous peshtemals.

The contemporary peshtemal towels that they enjoy using today have evolved from this historical hammam tradition.
