A double-sided design, with soft cotton terry on one side and cotton/linen blend on the other, makes these towels extra versatile and absorbant. The retro check pattern is reminiscent of early 19th-century tablecloths of American pioneers and homesteaders. 

To produce these towels, delicate threads are slowly woven on old-fashioned, low-speed looms in a factory in Japan. The towels are then finished with a thorough laundering using the wellsprings of underground water from the melted snows of Mount Ishizuchi, the tallest mountain in Western Japan.

Use & Care

Machine wash in cold water using a mild detergent. Hang dry or tumble dry on low or gentle cycle. Do not use bleach.

Production & Design

Since 1934, this Japanese company has been using old-fashioned looms to produce some of the softest towels, home linens and sleepwear available. The key to the softness is due to fine, loosely twisted threads. The company’s dedication to delicate materials means that high-speed looms and other modern technologies are out of the question, as this machinery would break the fine threads. To create further softness and absorbency, the textiles are laundered with natural detergents, such as orange oil, using wellspring water from the melted snows of nearby Mount Ishizuchi.
