Since 1934, Kontex has been crafting high-quality towels in Imabari, Japan. Over the years the company has perfected the secret to producing towels with exemplary softness. Each towel is made from fine, garment quality thread that’s loosely twisted for the highest level of softness. Such threads would break on modern weaving machines, thus Kontex towels are gently woven on traditional, low-speed machines to maintain the integrity of the thread and achieve a level of softness that modern machines cannot produce.
As towels are in regular contact the skin, it is imperative that no substances which could affect the body remain on the surface of the towel. Kontex's production undertakes a meticulous cleansing process whereby each item is carefully washed with fresh spring water sourced from the melted snow of beautiful Mt. Ishizuchi. This process ensures every thread is free from impurities. Free samples are included in orders where a 'Free Gift with purchase' promotional code has not been used.
