About KONTEX Towels:
Kontex towels are woven at gentle speeds on an old fashioned weaving machine. This slow weaving process brings out the natural softness of the yarn, making the towels as soft and silky as cashmere, yet durable enough for everyday use. Kontex towels are highly absorbent, lightweight, fast-drying and environmentally friendly.
Japanese towels are known as some of the most absorbent towels in the world. Traditionally compact and lightweight, their functional design is perfect for travel, daily use, and easy storage. Our slow-loomed towels are made the traditional way in Imabari, where towel-making has been the regional speciality for over 200 years. Soft and comforting, each towel pampers your skin as gently as a plush blanket.
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.
