The bath towel – your personal dryer

A bath towel is needed after a quick wash, a refreshing shower or a relaxing bath to soak gently the skin. Therewith the drying process is also free from harmful substances, terry cloths from organic cotton are recommended. From cultivation to the finished towel it is without any harmful substances. Neither pesticides nor chemical plant protection fertilizers are used nor are the bath towels dyed with toxic colours.

With a standard size of 70 x 140 cm, bath towels are somewhat smaller than sauna towels and beach towels, but they are sufficient to dry off after showering. They should be absorbent, durable and wear-resistant, as can be seen in the dry weight per square meter. As a rule, a bath towel has 400 g/sqm, the more, the heavier. With 600 g/sqm and more, they are also suitable for the bath and especially for the wellness area or as a cushion for the lounger at the pool. The size of 100 x 180 cm is particularly comfortable for spa and beach chairs. However, the most important quality features should always be the natural materials and the absorbency.

Short break in the sauna towel made from organic cotton terry

Especially in winter a visit in a spa is like a holiday. The heat in the steam bath ensures relaxation, stimulates the metabolism and strengthens the immune system. But also when summer temperatures prevail outside, the sauna is a very popular resort. For a short break after the end of the work day or at the weekend it is not much more needed than bathing shoes and a sauna towel. To protect the skin from the hot wooden bench and to protect the wooden bench against dripping sweat, a sauna towel should be at least 80 x 180 cm in size. XXL sizes with a length of 2 m and a width of 1.55 m are especially comfortable to put your feet up without touching the seat and lying surface in the sauna. Or to wrap yourself completely in it if you feel uncomfortable unclothed.

As the sauna towel is very close to the body like any other towel, natural materials such as organic cotton are appropriate. The GOTS seal shows that the cotton is free of pollutants. Roughly speaking, the heavier a sauna towel is, the more absorbent it is.

Choose an unique design to recognise your sauna towel in the wellness oasis. Or opt for a towel set in organic quality that matches the colour of the bathroom. Towels in a set often include classic towels 70 x 100 cm, a bath towel and washcloths. These sets are extendable with sauna towel, beach towel and guest towel in matching colours and designs.

Versatile: the beach towel made of organic cotton for holidays and leisure

Of course, a sauna towel can also be used at the beach or in the swimming pool. But mostly smaller and shorter bath towels are preferred. Because beach towels are about 80 x 180 cm, a practical size to spread out on the lounger or on a mat. A good terrycloth combines sustainable properties like natural materials – organic cotton, hemp, bamboo – and non-toxic dyes. Even with harmless dyeing you can design beach towels, which are plain or colourful and have beautiful motifs that remind you of holiday, leisure, fun and relaxation.

Weave and density of weave of the fabric provide information about how absorbent the beach towel is. 600 g/sqm are of heavy and noble quality, 400 g/sqm are plain and simple. Ultimately, the personal preference decides which terry cloth is taken along to the beach or the lake. Made of natural fibres, beach towels can be found in all kinds of qualities.

The natural materials provide a pleasant feeling on the skin and the funny motifs distract from the sometimes annoying washing process. Children's and baby's towels are often available with matching washcloths from organic cotton.

Practical and especially cuddly for the little bathing belle are hooded towels. After a bath wrapped in it, the hood protects the sensitive head from air draught. In addition, hooded towels give special care to babies and toddlers. For these baby towels preference is also given to the use of carefree and absorbent organic cotton. The cheerful colors are achieved through environmentally-friendly dyeing techniques.
