Imabari Waffle Towels

Free U.S. Shipping & Easy 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.

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.

Soft and Absorbant and Stuff Like That

Wow! Talk about a sponge; this towel is much better at getting you dry fast than I expected. And for some unknown reason it does not retain that musty odor of cotton towels.

Wonderful Towels!

This is by far my favorite towels. They are the perfect size, super absorbent and dry almost immediately. I am very, very pleased with them.

Great weight super comfortable and better with age

Always wanted these. Just bought a new house and can’t over emphasize how get of an addition they are. Perfect feel and get better every time I wash them.

Favorite towels

I originally ordered these in the hand towel size to try out the texture and promptly ordered the full set. They dry quickly, remain soft after washing, and I can tie the towel around my body comfortably and it actually stays put while I’m applying lotion, etc. Beautiful aesthetic and extremely cozy. A win win!

Fast drying!

This towel has been a wonderful addition to our bathroom! Living in a damp environment our previous towels usually take forever to dry and inevitably start smelling after only a couple of uses. These imabari towels have been a game changer, often feeling dry to the touch after only 4-5hrs after use.
