Kontex has been crafting top-quality towels in the famous towel-making city of Imbari, Japan since 1934.
They use the finest, loosely-twisted, garment quality thread to weave their stunning line of towels. This type of thread would break if used on high-speed, mass production machines commonly used by towel manufacturers, so they continue to use traditional machines that weave gently and slowly. Because of this their towels have a feel and a softness that you can’t find anywhere else. A Kontex towel is naturally absorbent and light, and feels uniquely wonderful against your skin.
You’ll quickly notice that the textures and styles of Kontex towels are unlike anything you’ve seen or felt. Using loose waffle patters, gauze cottons, blends of linen and ramie, Kontex creates towels that range from ultra-soft to crisp and exfoliating. You’ll find a texture that suits your bath routine!
Holding true to the Japanese tradition for purity in the bath routine, all Kontex towels are carefully and extensively washed in pure water from the melted snow of Mt. Ishizuchi, so no impurities end up against your skin.
