Traditional Japanese Soft Cotton Woven Blanket
Luxury in towel form.
This 100% cotton luxury towel is part of a collection crafted in Japan. Their luxurious, supple texture is similar to wool, but the cotton weave makes these towels feel extremely soft to the touch. The expansive size makes it well suited to the beach, bed, or bath. These towels are made using a traditional low speed weaving technique, resulting in their softer and silkier feel.
Kontex has been in the towel business since 1934, and one of the tricks they've picked up along the way to carefully wash each towel before selling it with large quantities of fresh spring water from the melted snow of Mt. Ishizuchi. This ensures that every thread is free from impurities, so you can snuggle up into it right away.
