These 100% cotton towels are made in the famous Japanese towel manufacturing region of Senshu, Osaka, where they undergo "Ato Sarashi"--a traditional technique for removing impurities from raw cotton. Each towel features a gauze side and a piled side, a combination that makes them highly absorbent and quick drying while they also remain light and thin. The towels become loftier and softer after the first wash and become more absorbent with use. The two-tone stripe design is fresh, clean and classic, complimenting most any bathroom. Available in bath, hand, and wash cloth towel sizes.
