Cotton Linen Waffle Towel by Kontex
Cotton Linen Towel has a unique waffle-like texture arranged in a lattice that is soft to the touch, lightweight, highly absorbent, and elegantly woven. This cotton and linen blend combination is gently woven on old-fashioned Japanese looms to maintain the integrity of the threads. The result is a thicker towel with reduced shrinkage and incredible comfort that faster contemporary machines cannot replicate.
This towel is made with a lattice weave also known as a waffle or honeycomb weave), which feels more drapey and thinner than terry weave. This textured towel is lighter, drapes better, and dries faster than any types of terry towel. It looks luxurious but unfussy.
In addition to the waffle weave, which dries faster than other weave patterns, linen is blended to enhance water absorption and quick-drying properties. As such, it dries fast and improves hygiene.
Each towel has hanging loops so it is easy to hook. The melange-like coloring created from different materials gives a stylish presence in bathroom interiors.

It takes gently crafted yarn and careful weaving to make towels soft. Modern machines are ideal for speedy mass productions. However the delicate yarn is often damaged simply because it cannot withstand the stresses of high speed weaving.
KONTEX towels are woven at gentle speeds on old traditional weaving machines. This slow weaving process helps to keep intact the refined and delicate properties of the yarn,making the towels as soft and silky as cashmere, yet durable enough for everyday use.
Kontex towels are highly absorbent, lightweight, fast-drying and environmentally friendly.
