It is pronounced as pes-te-mal , pesh-te-mal , pes-ta-mel , pesh-ta-mal and some countries has their unique names as “Fouta” , “Kikoi” , “Turkish Towel” and “ Sarong”.
In old times , our people use peshtemal for their wedding ceremonies or circumcision entertainments to invite people with writing ceremony information after embroidery on it. And we call this invitation method okuluk . No one could use envelope or paper, because in our village everybody had a loom in their house and prepare their own invitation fabric as today.
