The Uchino towels are a double fabric with a soft terry cloth on one side and a white, canvas-weave fabric on the other, printed with one of the traditional kimono patterns, the “Komon pattern”.
The story behind it:
The so-called “Komon patterns” are characterized by the fact that their pattern is very fine, sometimes so small-sized that the pattern is no longer recognizable even from a small distance and looks like a monochrome. Only when approaching it becomes visible and provides for surprise.
Uchino has traditionally (since 1949) been committed to the production of high-end bath textiles and here the Komon patterns play a central role, because with the kimonos originally everything started.
Also, the use of natural materials is a specialty of the manufacturer from the area around Imabari.
In any case, the towels are always lightweight, plush and ultra-absorbent. The secret lies in the only slightly twisted yarns that are almost reminiscent of raw cotton. An exceptional experience!
