2.5-Ply Gauze Towel

$ 48.00 USD

Shinto took the middle layer of a traditional 20-count, 3-ply cotton gauze fabric, and replaced it with a half-weight weave to create a 2.5-ply towel that feels lightweight yet substantial. Each style features an irregular weave that contributes a uniquely soft texture and a slight variation in dyes to create an alluring depth of color. The 2.5-Ply Gauze Towel is generously sized and features a unique "slim towel" option that can be used as either washcloth or accessory.

About Shinto Towel
Shinto Towel combines more than a century of knowledge and technical experience with an eye for innovation and creativity to create premium textiles that disrupt the status quo. Their towels are set apart by their superior absorbency, luxurious softness, and a trademark texture achieved through atozarashi, a post-weave refining process that removes all starch, oils, and impurities from the fibers to create an addictingly fluffy texture.

Care: Avoid pulling loose threads and instead snip them carefully with a pair of scissors. Do not use chlorine bleach. Wash with like colors, especially in the beginning. The texture may be affected by different washing machines and/or laundry soaps. Avoid the overuse of fabric softeners as this may damage the fibers and reduce absorbency. Pulling or snapping the towel lengthwise while wet can cause the piles (the loops in the toweling) to stretch, resulting in gaps in the material. Handle wet towels gently. For best results, washed towels should be hung to dry in a shady, well-ventilated area.
