    General Information

    Exotic, colorful and non-slip. Terry towels from Japan

    Bathroom textiles from Imabari in Japan - recognizable by the typical sewn-in label - enjoy a worldwide reputation. The bathroom textiles from the local manufacturer Murakami Pile are also characterized by a number of special textile techniques. In addition to special weaving techniques, materials such as washi yarn or coal as a mineral dye are used that are unusual in Europe.

    The special feature of these cotton terry towels is apparent at first glance: The long loops of the terry cloth fabric come in four different colors. Genuine terry towelling is somewhat more complex to produce anyway, because it is woven with three thread systems (warp, weft and loop). The multi-colored loops therefore require an additional four differently dyed yarns. The terry towels also impress with their non-slip, highly absorbent fabric, which not only dries excellently, but also dries again quickly. So it's not surprising that the test sample in our product manager's family bathroom quickly became her favorite towel and, once washed, has to go straight back to the sink ...

    Hospitable by Tradition. Towels from Imabari

    60% of towels in Japan are made in the Japanese town of Imabari, in Ehime Prefecture, in the north of Shikoku Island. There are 4,000 looms per less than 160,000 inhabitants here, including over 120 companies that are allowed to produce towels under the "Imabari Towel" quality label. The water used for bleaching the textiles comes from underground flowing springs that are particularly low in lime and heavy metals, especially from the Sōja River - a circumstance that has indirectly promoted the concentration of companies producing bathroom textiles. The use of the soft water makes the towels particularly pliable and at the same time allows dyes to penetrate deep into the textile fibers. The result: exceptionally soft and intensely colored linens. It has always been a tradition in the region around Imabari to support pilgrims who are on the 1,200 km long Shikoku pilgrimage route (one of the most important Buddhist pilgrimage routes) with food, money, but also just towels on their journey - and this hospitality should also be reflected in the texture of the textiles produced here.

    One of the mandatory quality criteria for "Imabari Towels" concerns the ability to absorb water: a 1 × 1 cm piece of the fabric must be able to sink to the bottom in the water within five seconds - an indication that the towel is able to absorb water and also other liquids without prior washing. Accordingly, Imabari Towels are characterized by absorbing moisture extremely quickly.
