Shinto 2.5 ply Gauze Wash Towel


Sheer luxury, we love these towels, traditionally handmade in Japan for over 100 years.

Woven layers of organic cotton gauze, with an irregular weave, produce a unique, exquisitely soft texture. Light and gentle to touch, while highly absorbent, such a beautiful addition to your bathing rituals.

At 33x33cm, use as a large washer or small hand towel, available in charcoal grey or natural beige. 

Also available in a bath towel, see our full range of Shinto towels here.

Established in 1907, Shinto Towel Co combine over 100 years of knowledge and technical experience with innovation and creativity to produce towels of superior quality.

Care: Avoid pulling loose threads and instead snip them carefully with a pair of scissors. Do not use chlorine bleach. Wash with like colours, especially in the beginning. The texture may be affected by different washing machines and/or laundry soaps. Avoid the overuse of fabric softeners as this may damage the fibres and reduce absorbency. Pulling or snapping the towel lengthwise while wet can cause the piles (the loops in the toweling) to stretch, resulting in gaps in the material. Handle wet towels gently. For best results, washed towels should be hung to dry in a shady, well-ventilated area.
