Imabari Waffle Towels

olive
Free U.S. Shipping & Easy Returns on Bedding and Bath

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

  • 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.

  • Always free shipping within the continental U.S.

  • Exchanges and returns for store credit are free.

Pretty

At first I doubted the absorbency of these towels but they proved me wrong. They’re huge and light weight and look nice hanging in the bathroom. They aren’t as soft as “normal” towels, but they do what they’re supposed to do. I’m very happy with the white.

For $60 and a long shipping delay, I am disappointed.

The color is as expected. The towel is on the lighter side. But the waffle is thicker and spongier than I would like. Was hopeful this was going to be a towel I would love and buy more of, but no.
