The Moku Light Towel is woven with 100% cotton and is one of our most compact and multipurpose styles. Powerfully absorbent and quick-drying, it performs like a towel twice its size and comes in a wide range of colors. The compact design makes it an ideal choice for homes and kitchens with limited shelf space. Also available in a linen version.
"Highly Recommended" by the editors at Bon Appétit: "Ever since I’ve started keeping a Moku towel slung over my oven door next to my tomato sauce towels, I’ve realized a good dish towel can be every bit as wonderful as a sharp knife, a wooden spoon, or a heavy cutting board."

Gentle on the skin and kind to the environment, Kontex towels are crafted in Imabari, Japan, using centuries-old techniques, as they have been since the company’s founding in 1934. Each 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 a towel that’s incredibly absorbent, surprisingly compact, and free from impurities - the perfect addition to any kitchen or bathroom.
