How do you improve the perfect towel? This soft, absorptive, and quick-drying towel is an Earth-friendly evolution of our popular Lattice and Lattice Linen styles. By upcycling scrap fabric and recycled plastic bottles, it softens its overall environmental impact. Just one bath towel removes 4.5 plastic bottles out of landfills and upcycles 106g of discarded cotton, minimizing CO2 emissions and reducing the use of water and dyes in the process. The style includes a handy hanging loop for fast drying.
Gentle on the skin and kind to the environment, Kontex creates textiles using centuries-old techniques, as they have been since the company’s founding in 1934. Each Kontex 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.
