Organic cotton’s natural softness and absorbency are fully felt in these oversized hand towels from Coyuchi. The twill weave exposes more loops to the surface of the towel, which helps quickly wick water off your hands. The open spaces in the ridges of the twill weave makes for a speedy dry time. This towel meets the certification standards of Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which are awarded by the International Working Group in conjunction with the International Labor Organization. This means that the towels contain at least 95% organic fiber; have been colored with non-toxic dyes and not treated with bleach, formaldehyde or other toxic substances; and were produced in a mill that enforces strict social and environmental standards, treating their employees and the earth with deep respect. The sewing of these towels is also Fair Trade Certified, meaning that factory employees are have a protected status and are paid living wages to improve life for themselves and their families.
Machine wash warm with a non-phosphate soap. For the softness, tumble dry low and remove promptly. Avoid fabric softeners, as they reduce absorbency. To maximize absorbency, add a cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle, about every six weeks, to restore the towel to full absorbency. The vinegar removes any excess detergent, which can affect absorbency. While machine drying will make the hand towel fluffy, do not overdo it, as the heat from the dryer can damage the integrity of the cotton. We recommend using a lower heat setting occasionally or alternating between air and heat drying.
This towel was made by Coyuchi, a textile company with studios set in the picturesque environment of the northern California coast. Their designers and makers are inspired by the visions of the surrounding environment, from sun-starched fields of foliage to rustic barns surfacing from moody gray fogs. Coyuchi’s mission and philosophy is to create comfortable, natural textiles that are produced in a way that will not harm the environment. All of their products are certified by international organizations as being woven from organic materials that are free of chemicals and harmful substances, and made by people that are respected with fair wages and treated well according to labor laws set by the International Labor Organization.
