Woven in Japan by
Lightweight, incredibly soft, and quick to dry, say hello to your new can’t-live-without staples. Loomed with an oversized waffle construction, these waffle towels are more breathable and absorbent than your run-of-the-mill versions. Designed in three fresh hues and finished with a refined, flat-edge border, they’re as handsome as they are functional.
Each towel is made with long-staple Pima cotton and loomed in the oldest, family-run mill in Imabari that has spent 100 years perfecting the art of towel making. From weaving to dyeing and washing, each step is done in a fair-trade environment.
Note: Available in three sizes — face towel / washcloth, hand towel, or bath towel.
Face Towel / Washcloth: 14”L x 14”W
Hand Towel: 33”L x 14”W
Bath Towel: 57”L x 31”W
- MATERIALS: 100% Pima cotton (from the US)
- COLOR: Available in white, grey, and indigo
- ORIGIN: Japan
These cotton towels can be machine washed on cold with like colors. Tumble dry on low. Do not bleach.
After washing, the waffle weave will deepen and shrink a bit, developing a more organic character over time. We recommend hanging on a rack instead of hooks – the hooks will stretch out the weave over time.

I have sent in my email a couple of times but have not heard back! These towels look amazing and I am excited to actually buy them. Can you tell me how ofter you get shipments from your suppliers?
Hi Bill, Thank you so much for the note. We are so happy you love these towels. While our shipments have been a bit delayed due to transit and border closures, we are expecting a shipment of these towels to hit the site in August. We will be sure to add your email to the waitlist and let you know as soon as they arrive. Thank you for your continued support of the Citizenry. Best, The Citizenry Team.
First - the size of the towels are way bigger than you would have originally anticipated. Second - they're super soft, but knowing they're going to get even *softer* is amazing and I am super looking forward to it. They get softer as you *use them,* which speaks to the quality of this material. I purchased four sets of these for just my boyfriend and I to use - guests get the ugly towels for now. When we move into a place with two bathrooms, I'm going to buy a second set of a few of these in a different color (ours is in gorgeous indigo), so that it can be a specific set of guest towels JUST for guests. They're gonna feel like they're walking into a spa. Next wish is for the hinoki wooden mat!
Hi Jaime, Thanks for sharing your experience with our Imabari Waffle Towels. These were definitely designed to create a spa like experience - and we're so glad you love them as much as we do!! I'd say the Hinoki Wood Mat would definitely go well in your space - and you won't regret it!! We're expecting more to land in mid-April, so be sure to keep an eye out for updates regarding when they become available! We're here if you need us - just reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
