Imabari Waffle Towels

Free U.S. Shipping & Returns

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: Each set includes two towels – two face towels / washcloths, two hand towels, or two bath towels.

  • 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)

  • White, grey, or indigo

  • Japan

  • We’re confident you’ll love your new piece from The Citizenry. But just in case, you have 30 days to return any new, unwashed items in original packaging. And yes, it’s free.

Made with higher standards. We preserve artisan craft by paying wages that average 2x the fair trade requirement.

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.

  • Orders headed to any destination within the continental United States ship for free – wahoo!

  • It’s easy (and free). You can return any new, undamaged items within 30 days of delivery.

Best towel I’ve ever had!

It gets better with each wash and is the most absorbent towel and I’ve tried many. Only frustration is waiting for the bath towel to come back in stock.

I love these towels. They dry quickly and look beautiful, and they’re the perfect texture for that elevated, luxury feel.

Wish I could actually buy them!

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?

The Citizenry

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.

Light weight and awesome texture

We love these towels and want to replace our entire collection with this. Super light weight for quick drying.

Luxury in a towel

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!
