When was the last time you bought a new bath towel? Are yours starting to smell musty? Perhaps they never quite maintained their original color, or they are so worn they don’t exactly cover the body anymore. If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it is time you checked out Onsen bath towels, a company that has made a name for itself selling products made from only the highest quality materials with purposeful design.
The concept of the Onsen towel was created, like most great products out there, from necessity. Often as towels age they lose the capacity to absorb moisture or worse yet, some more “premium” brands market a fluffier, thicker towel which as nice as that may sound, after one use, never thoroughly dries out. This in turn, leads to it holding on to moisture it absorbed making it damp and the perfect breeding ground for mold and bacteria.
Onsen, want to change the way we think about towels with their take on an old classic. Their bath towels are made from beautiful premium cotton grown in the U.S.A in a distinct waffle weave and made from a material that is 45% stronger than most conventional cotton blends. In fact, the longer fibers of the Supima cotton used in Onsen towels not only make the them increasingly soft overtime but also incredibly resilient and can help prevent pilling and breaking. As it is a particularly fine cotton as well, it absorbs dyes more readily which results in less fading over their lifetime and faster drying after use.
One thing we really love about Onsen towels after using them this past month, is their raw approach to design and manufacturing. Their towels are not treated with any additional chemicals to “make them soft”, they just are thanks to that brilliant Supima cotton. On a side note, these things feel so luxurious on the skin, we would love to see a pair of Supima underwear from a company soon! They are also Oeko-Tex certified, meaning they have been tested for harmful substances by independent institutes and production has been optimized regarding sustainability. We always love companies that are aware of their impact on the environment as a priority.
Onsen, sell a range of premium products from bath towels to hand towels and if you want only the best nay most hygienic towels in your home for you and your family, then you need to check these guys out.
