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 first washing, 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.
