Since 1934, Kontex based in Imabari, Japan has been producing its textiles with traditional looms and weaving techniques. Compared to newer technologies which are used for speedy mass production, this method is more time consuming, but shows better results in absorption capacity, texture softness and fast drying.
Furthermore, the yarn is less likely to get damaged which is a common problem in industrial manufacturing due to the stresses of high speed weaving. All textiles are woven strictly from cotton and linen. The fibers are washed and cleansed with the water from nearby Mt. Ishizuchi with low mineral content. For dyeing processes natural orange oil is used. Kontex products bear the Imabari seal of quality.
