Japanese bathtowels

The Imabari prefecture has led the towel industry for 120 years as the mecca of towel production in Japan.

Imabari’s clean environment and abundant soft water from the Sojagawa River contribute to the quality of the towels produced.
This water is gentle to the yarn and material of the towel and allows delicate and bright colors while bringing out the natural softness of the cotton used

Towels produced in the area represent the highest quality produced in Japan with a reputation for being safe, secure, and long-lasting.
They are renowned for their softness, and water absorbency.

Imabari towels have their own quality inspection method. All towels must satisfy the “five-second rule.” This checks whether a towel sinks after it is placed on the water within five seconds.

Here is a little collection of superb Japanese bathing textiles that truly reflect the craft of towel making from the Imbari region.
