PAN – Australian Made Jewellery

 

Materials

 

PAN Jewellery is manufactured in Australia with authentic natural gemstones. All products are hand made using the highest quality Australian and imported materials. Jewellery strands are threaded on the best natural silk threads, providing extra strength. Metal materials are either Sterling Silver or 18 carat gold plated. Crystal materials are made from imported Czech elements.

 

Warranty

 

All items are Australian made and have a 6 month warranty against defective or faulty manufacturing.

 

Care Instructions

 

All items in the PAN Jewellery collection are made from the finest gems and materials. Authentic natural gemstones need to be handled with care and can be damaged if dropped. The jewellery should not be sprayed directly with scents and perfumes as this may affect the overall quality and appearance of the materials. When the jewellery requires cleaning use a soft jewellery cloth to polish clean.

 

Special note on Jewellery packaging

We package our jewellery in clamshell boxes. These are merely for the protection of the jewellery in transit, and does not constitute part of the product and is therefore not covered by any warranty. These boxes are brand new but some may have slight defects such as a scratch for example. This in no way reflects on the product itself, which is handmade and sourced separately, and as stated these boxes are for transporting the jewellery. The clamshell boxes snap close so it is imperative to keep the jewellery and your fingers clear when closing. We recommend storing your jewellery in a specialised jewellery box, in it's own compartment.

 

 

 

 

Turkish Cotton Towels

 

The SUPER SOFT Turkish Murkish™. The name says it all. It is superbly soft. It only takes one wash to break it in and you’re ready to roll. It relies on a looser weaving technique and pre washing compared to the traditional cotton towel. It does not rely on chemical additives.

Our bestselling SUPER SOFT Turkish Murkish™ is the perfect Turkish beach or bath towel. It is lightweight, fast drying and looks stylish. It is made from 100% Buldan cotton.

SUPER SOFT Turkish Murkish™ adds a modern take on traditional towels. This towel is the ultimate in holiday chic; pack it in your suitcase for a pool towel and sarong in one. Use it as a soft scarf or shawl in the cooler months. Perfect for travel, gym or yoga.

Turkish Murkish™ towels are very practical around the home and family. They can be used as a throw on the couch or bed, or table runner, or a light weight beach blanket or picnic rug.

Turkish Murkish™ towels are made from Buldan cotton, which means they dry very quickly compared to Egyptian and Pima cotton.

Turkish Murkish™ towels will soon become your go to item year round due to their practical uses and functions.

Variations of colour and weave are characteristic of these loomed items. At times the colour in the photo may not match the towel you receive. This is due to each batch of cotton being dyed differently.  As you can imagine all our towels are made by different artisans which means differences in colour and weave will occur.

TURKISH – A DIFFERENT KIND OF TOWEL™

Made in Turkey.

Care Instructions

We recommend washing your Turkish Murkish™ a few times before use, to break them in, as they become softer and more absorbent with each wash.  A cold or warm gentle wash and line dry is recommended. Washing in a mesh laundry bag helps keep the tassels intact. Expect a little shrinkage as the cotton is in its pure form. No chemicals have been used to treat the cotton. Hence why the towels are quite stiff when you purchase them. If a tassel unravels just split the tassel into two and twist them separately until they spiral together as one and tie a knot. Or just leave it alone. It adds to the towels authentic look.  If your towels threads have a pull, just simply snip it. Due to the weaving process it will not make a hole.

If towels are exposed to oil, soil, and germs, wash in warm water at a maximum of 30°C for dark towels and 40°C for light towels using laundry detergent.

As the tassels are all hand knotted, they may unravel when washed with other clothing. To prolong this we recommend washing your towels in mesh laundry bags.

If they do unravel, don’t worry, it just shows the towel is an authentic Turkish Towel it won’t take away from its character.

Spot treat stains.

Do not bleach. Bleach damages the cotton fibres of the towel, making it less absorbent and soft.

To maximize the absorbency of a towel, add a cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle once a month, to restore the towel to full absorbency. The vinegar removes any excess detergent which builds up after successive washes and can sometimes affect the towels’ absorbency.

As all our towels are woven, a pulled loop will not unravel the towel. If you catch the towel and pull a loop, cut off the pulled loop with a pair of scissors.
