About Kontex
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.
