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.
