Why We Love It
This authentic gift set of Imabari towels, woven in Japan's most renowned towel-making region, features two plush bath towels in a choice of cream and pink, or cream and blue, presented in a premium wooden box, making a luxurious gift perfect for couples.
Drawing inspiration from traditional Japanese karakusa grass patterns and the turbulent waves of the Kurushima Strait, the towels showcase hand-drawn irregular curves, brought to life through the intricate jacquard weave technique. Two distinct pile yarns, carefully spun in Imabari, lend the towel a plush, smooth feel and an unparalleled soft touch.
Ideal for gifting or indulging oneself, this Monori Imabari Bath Towel Set stands as a testament the prestigious textile craftsmanship of Imabari Kinsei - a proud recipient of the Good Design Award in Japan.
Why Choose Towels from Imabari?
Situated in Ehime Prefecture on the island of Shikoku, Imabari has been the center of the Japanese towel industry for over a century, firmly establishing itself as the veritable mecca of towel weaving.
Japanese towels from this region are not just products, but the embodiment of a legacy. Every towel that carries the Imabari Towel Japan certification stamp must undergo rigorous evaluations. Several key criteria define this standard, including absorbency, shedding rate, antimicrobial strength, and dyeing intensity. Each aspect is thoroughly vetted, repeatedly tested, and only when the towel achieves 100% superior quality is it graced with the esteemed certification mark.
The magic of Imabari towels lies in the minutiae of their creation. From the careful handling of yarn, and the precision in weaving, to the mastery in dye composition, each step is a testament to time-honored artisanal skills.
