SLOW MADE IN JAPAN
An organic cotton towel slowly woven on the traditional vintage Toyoda looms in Imabari, Japan. This artisanal process involves a low speed weaving method that maintains the integrity of the thread and creates a softness that modern machines cannot match.
Each towel has a soft and absorbent terrycloth pile back and a cotton weave front with a simple graph pattern and handy hanging loop. They are dyed naturally using bamboo charcoal, coffee and black tea to create beautiful neutral shades and to maintain softness. Lightweight, absorbent and compact, these towels are ideal for using everyday, for travel and are easy to store.
