My Story

Love at first sight

It is with great excitement and great pride that I invite you to dive with me into the Balmy universe! First, let me introduce myself. My name is Saskia. In Quebec, I have been a television host for several decades and I have become a woman entrepreneur along the way. For the past year, I have been the proud owner of Balmy.

Balmy is a story of love at first sight. I love the brand and everything it offers so much when founder Raphaëlle decided to sell it in order to fulfill her dream of becoming a doctor. I knew immediately that I was going to buy it. Balmy is a collection of Turkish towels, woven on a hand loom and it is also a magnificent art of living collection to brighten up your home and your daily life. Each piece is created for those who take responsibility, love each other and enjoy every moment alone or in good company.

Choosing Balmy means being unique, true, free, with both feet on the ground and sometimes with your head in the clouds. At the beach, at yoga, at the spa, at home, to dress your table or cover your shoulders, Balmy will accompany you in the sweetest and craziest moments of your daily life. Show your “true you” with your Balmy!


Our Bamboo fabric is the softest you’ll ever touch, so soft in fact that you’ll want to sleep in it. It also has antimicrobial properties referred to as “Bamboo Kun”. These natural antimicrobial bio-agents help reduce bacteria that thrive on materials as well as on the human skin. Bamboo can also take up to three times its weight in water, which makes it incredibly absorbent, yet it remains fast drying.  



Our bamboo towels will maintain their special qualities when washed in cold to warm water with a gentle detergent, free of bleach. If necessary, it can be dried in a clothes dryer on the cool setting.

Premium Cotton

Our premium Turkish cotton is woven with longer fibers which gives it the perfect balance between absorbency and softness and makes it the best cotton to be used in towels. This unique material also becomes softer, fluffier and more absorbent with successive washings. As if it wasn’t perfect enough already, sand doesn’t hold on to it and it dries extremely fast.



Our Turkish cotton towels will best preserve their properties if washed in cold to medium water with a gentle detergent, free of bleach and fabric softener.


At Balmy Towels, we believe in the importance of creating high quality and sustainable products that will last you through years of use. This is why we collaborate with Turkish weavers to bring you beautiful, hand-loomed towels. From generations of artisans knowhow, to you.
