The Lille Towel is proof positive that doing things the old-fashioned way can pay off. Each towel is slowly woven on one of the last vintage Toyota looms in Imabari and features a simple neutral stripe-on-stripe design that complements nearly any interior. Made from organic cotton and a touch of linen, the Lille Towel combines the best of both materials to create a towel that's absorbent and soft (and which gets softer with every wash). Each size features a handy hanging loop for easy drying and storage.
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.
