The art of towel production

Imabari towels are meticulously crafted by skilled artisans who take pride in their work. The production process involves spinning the cotton fibers into yarn, weaving the yarn into fabric, and then carefully dyeing and finishing the towels. Each step is carried out with precision and attention to detail, ensuring that the final product meets the highest standards of quality.

As a fifth generation family business, the producing company successfully merges tradition with a clean and timeless aesthetic. They experiment with different yarns and weaving structures to create a range of models and sizes for every need. Just natural materials like cotton and linen are used, every towel is prewashed in the soft waters of Mount Ishizuchi.

Choosing the perfect Japanese towel

When choosing a Japanese towel, it's important to consider your personal preferences and needs. If you value luxury and indulgence, a soft towel, like our Lana would be an excellent choice.

Whichever towel you choose, you can be confident that you're investing in a product that is not only functional, it is made for your wellbeing.
