This towel, which uses 100 percent organic cotton, was created to be lightweight and comfortable to use.
Using a thin thread of organic cotton to weave a towel is a much harder thing to do than imagined, and it requires delicate and elaborate techniques.
After repeatedly failing on countless occasions, and with the cooperation of craftsmen and sewing professionals, a 160 gram extremely light towel was achieved.
When hanging it off your shoulder after coming out of the bath, you’ll forget it’s there — that’s how light it is.
Its absorbency and quick drying ability is excellent, and its touch is gentle and soft. Such a tender touch to the skin is ideal for use on babies.
The “Organic Air” towel’s great appeal is its comfort that envelopes you as if you were clothed in air.
Price: ¥2,160 (one towel)
Manufacturer: IKEUCHI ORGANIC Co. in Imabari, Ehime Prefecture
