Most bath towels are made of cotton, but cotton towels vary in their softness, absorbency, durability and color-fastness. Fabric type is the most important feature of a bath towel. Here are some of the most common fabrics we use for our bath towels:
Bamboo bath towels – can be 100% bamboo, but are more often a bamboo and cotton blend. Bamboo bath towels are lush, supple and color-fast. The bamboo plant is naturally anti-bacterial, grows heartily in a pest-free environment and makes a super absorbent fabric.
Egyptian cotton bath towels – made of the highest quality cotton and are one of the most popular types of bath towels. Egyptian cotton fibers are extra-long and highly absorbent, making Egyptian cotton bath towels the most exquisite way to end a shower or bath. Luxurious Egyptian cotton has a very long lifespan when properly cared for.
Microfiber bath towels – a fairly new type of towel. Microfiber is made by blending polyester and polyamide fibers (80/20 ratio is common). Microfiber grabs dust, dirt, dry skin, makeup, and oil without chemicals.
Organic cotton bath towels – are woven from cotton untouched by unnatural fertilizers or pesticides. Certified organic cotton is grown and harvested to leave the smallest possible carbon footprint, and organic cotton bath towels are usually created under the same earth-friendly environment.
