Imabari Waffle Towel Set

light-grey
Free U.S. Shipping & Easy Returns on Bedding and Bath

Say hello to the most lightweight, absorbent, and soft towels we’ve ever laid eyes on (or hands, or feet, or… you get the idea). For extra durability and absorbency, the waffle weave is intentionally bigger than standard waffle-weave towels. The best part? What starts off as a pristine weave only becomes softer and more relaxed with each wash.

Available in white, grey, indigo, natural and olive - you’ll want these towels in every corner of your home.

Set includes: 

  • 2 face towels / washcloths 
  • 2 hand towels
  • 2 bath towels


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. 

  • Face Towel / Washcloth - 14"L x 14"W
    Hand Towel - 33"L x 14"W
    Bath Towel - 57"L x 31"W

  • 100% Pima Cotton (from the US) - 490 GSM

  • Available in Natural, White, Olive, Light Grey and Indigo

  • Japan

  • We offer free 30-day returns for bedding & towels. Please return items unwashed & in original packaging.

Fair Trade. Guaranteed. 100% of our products are made with a process guaranteed by the World Fair Trade Organization.

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.

Gorgeous towels!

I bought these towels in navy and olive - both colors are gorgeous! I love the feel of them when they’re dry, and I especially love the feel of them drying off after a shower. They’re absorbent, pliant and visually beautiful. We love having them in our home.

Game changer

These towels are not only extremely soft, they get softer as you wash them and I’ve never had a towel that just wicks the water right off without rubbing. Highly absorbing but also fast drying! I bought two sets in Olive and I’m in love. Will buy in more colors!

Superior luxury towels!!

We have been using our citizenry waffle towels for a little over two months now and we’re obsessed. We were nervous reading reviews here about threads pulling, but we haven’t had a single issue like this. Just wash on delicate with a gentle detergent & tumble dry low! I have been recommending our towels to everyone and will definitely be purchasing another set! I think it’s also worth mentioning that we tried and compared with other luxury/organic brands and ultimately these towels were the best and most quality type we found!

Excellent bath linens !!!

These Imabari Waffle Towel Sets I purchased are the best and most luxurious bath linens I have ever used. And, having traveled fairly extensively and lodged at top-of-the-line hotels, I have experienced many quality products. I am so pleased I made the investment to decorate my bath with them. Not only are they totally beautiful but I just love how they feel and function. I am very happy !!!
