Moku Tech Recycled Sports Towel

$27

The MokuTech Light Towel – by covering the plant-derived ultrafine fiber 'Bemberg' on the thread suface, the water absorption and quick-drying properties characteristic of the MOKU series have been further improved. Extremely lightweight, with a highly absorbent textured weave, the Moku towel is the ultimate go-to towel for an active lifestyle.

Japanese towels are known as some of the most absorbent towels in the world – traditionally compact and lightweight, the medium Moku is a versatile towel, perfectly suited as a sweat towel but also at home in the bathroom or kitchen as a hand towel. Its unobtrusive size fits in any bag for those "wish-i-had-a-towel" moments. Powerfully absorbent and quick-drying, the compact design and corner hanging tab make it an ideal choice for hand and face drying.

    Kontex towels are woven at gentle speeds on an old-fashioned weaving machine in Imabari, where towel-making has been the regional specialty for over 200 years. This slow weaving process brings out the natural softness of the yarn, making the towels extremely soft, yet durable enough for everyday use. Kontex towels are highly absorbent, lightweight, fast-drying, and environmentally friendly.

    Maker Profile

    Kontex

    Since 1934, Kontex has been crafting high-quality towels in Imabari, Japan. The secret to Kontex’s softness is in the manufacturing process. Each Towel is made from fine, garment quality thread that’s loosely twisted for the highest level of softness. Such threads would break on modern weaving machines, thus Kontex towels are gently woven on traditional, low-speed machines to maintain the integrity of the thread and achieve a level of softness that modern machines cannot produce. 

    Because towels contact the skin, we find it imperative that no substances which could affect the body remain on the surface of the towel. Kontex products are carefully washed with large quantities of fresh spring water from the melted snow of Mt. Ishizuchi, ensuring every thread is free from impurities.
