Organic Cotton Black & White Stripe Hand Towel - 60cm x 30cm
All designs are limited edition and handmade in small batches for NZ homeware brand Ottoloom.
These are not your ordinary towels - here's why:
Completely Hand Crafted
These towels are hand woven and hand dyed using time-honoured techniques passed down through generations of families on traditional, wooden shuttle looms.
There are only a few families left in the world with the equipment and knowledge to produce this particular weave. The end result is a fabric of integrity and strength, with a look, singular to this craft, that is recognised throughout the world.
Because they are weaved slowly and gently by hand on a shuttle loom, the threads are very strong and the towels will last a minimum of 20 years if cared for correctly.
Add to the strength of the thread that these are 100% pure organic cotton, and not coated in starch or wax like factory-made towels, and you have an unsurpassed level of absorption. You'll find these towels dry the body really well - they don't just move water around the body.
Made with independently 100% certified (GOTS) organic cotton.
All practices are sustainable, ethical and fair trade from start to finish.
The superior quality of this yarn and gentle hand weaving technique means this towel will stay soft and luxurious for over twenty years compared to mass-produced, bleached and chemically-treated factory imitations.
Ottoloom supports families in their traditional professions, allowing them to teach this life-long art form to new generations.
