Imabari Waffle Towels

Free U.S. Shipping & Free 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 five 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) - 490 GSM

  • 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.

Wonderful Waffle Towels! Worth the Wait!

I am a huge fan of waffle towels.These are the Best! NOTE: Be sure to launder once with Eco-correct laundry soap before first use. I always launder on warm with low heat dry. Be wise...launder in good Eco-correct suds for their whole life. These towels become softer and puffier with each wash. As waffle towel fans know, it's super difficult to find a really good waffle towel. These are top of the line worldwide! No regrets for splashing out on these. Next purchase will be as a new co-op gift for really good friends! BTW:quick shipping and brisk sales once they land. Add yourself to the wait-list NOW!
