Towels – The Essential Luxury Home Furnishing

Towels are essential products in our daily wardrobe. You need them every morning right till the end of the way to keep yourself dry. Hence, you need a good towel which gives a soft and luxurious feel to your skin. Towels also help you to keep you warm after a nice bath. While choosing the right towel, you need to keep a few things in mind. The loops in the fabric allow the towel to absorb water. First and foremost, the fabric should be comfortable and compatible with your skin. A good quality fibre adds to the towels durability and the power of absorbency. Some of the common fibres used are Egyptian cotton, Micro cotton, Pima cotton, Turkish cotton, etc. Light and fluffy towels feel soft to your skin as they have longer loops that add fluffiness to the same. Egyptian cotton is grown in Egypt’s warm climate. With its extra-long, fibrous threads, this fluffy fibre is highly absorbent as well as breathable, thereby contributing to its durability. Micro cotton fabric is known for its high-quality and long-staple cotton fiber which gives it a soft and fluffy feel along with excellent absorbency. Pima cotton, also known as Supima is a superior blend of cotton and a common fibre for towels for its strength and durability. Its rich, extra-long staple fibres account for their durability. Another variant of Pima cotton known as the Peruvian Pima cotton, grows along the coast of Peru. The rich soil makes the cotton perfectly moist, soft and smooth. With its extra long staple, the fibre is less likely to shed as much lint as some of the other types. Hence, it is a great choice for people with sensitive skin. These properties make a Peruvian cotton towel ideal for gym. Grown exclusively in Turkey, Turkish cotton is a premium cotton featuring an extra-long staple. This long staple creates a towel with a high level of comfort, absorbency and durability along with fast-dry quality. You also need to consider the weight of the Towel before making a purchase. It is measured in terms of GSM (grams per square meter) which is the density of the towel. Lower the GSM, thinner the towel, thus leading to a faster wear and tear. Towels which have higher GSM are of superior quality. You can choose towels according to your needs. You can get bath towel of a bigger size, hand-wash towel of a comparatively smaller size or a towel handkerchief for that matter. In order to maintain the hygiene, you need to take care of your towels. If you over-stuff your washing machines, there is a high chance that your towel will not get the best results. If your towel is white, clean it in hot water and you should occasionally wash them with chlorine bleach to remove stains and kill bacteria. Use warm water for coloured towel to prevent bleeding of the colours and do not bleach. Fabric softeners are not made for towels as they will lose their absorbency. It always helps to rinse a new towel into the washing machine and add a cup of vinegar, which increases the absorbency of the towels.
