ORGANIC COTTON + LINEN
SLOW MADE IN JAPAN
COMPACT + ABSORBENT
An organic cotton and linen 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 looped cotton terry pile back and a cotton weave front with a vintage navy check pattern. Lightweight, absorbent and compact, these towels are ideal for using everyday, for travel and are easy to store. Great for the bathroom and the hand towel is also suitable for the kitchen.
