Kontex towels are woven at gentle speeds on an old fashioned weaving machine. This manufacturing process brings out the natural softness of the materials and makes the towels as soft and silky as cashmere, yet durable enough for everyday use. Kontex towels are highly absorbent, light- weight, fast-drying and environmentally friendly. Made in Imabari Japan, a region famous for textiles, the towels are pre-washed in water from Mt. Ishizuchi. Due to its low mineral content, the water is perfect for thorough removal of inorganic additives, resulting in a highly absorbent product. The perfect towel for your little ones.
