Lattice Imabari Towel
$ 21.00 USD
A longtime favorite, the Lattice Imabari Towel from Kontex features a soft, waffle-like weave that offers superior absorbency through increased surface area. These 100% cotton Imabari towels are gently woven on vintage low-speed looms to maintain the integrity of their high-quality threads, then cleansed of oils and impurities to maximize their water capacity. The result is a thicker Imabari bath towel with minimal shrinkage and incredible comfort that modern machines simply cannot reproduce. Also available in linen blend and recycled cotton versions.
Gentle on the skin and kind to the environment, Kontex creates Imabari towels using centuries-old techniques, as they have been since the company’s founding in 1934. Each Imabari bath towel is made from fine, garment-quality thread gently woven on traditional low-speed looms to achieve unparalleled softness, then washed in snowmelt from the slopes of Mt. Ishizuchi. The end result is an Imabari towel that’s incredibly absorbent, surprisingly compact, and free from impurities - the perfect addition to any kitchen or bathroom.
