Most detergents contain optical brighteners which should not be used on your pure cotton bath towel.

If you prefer to use a detergent, only mild detergents that do not contain optical brightening agents should be used.

Avoid using fabric softeners which may reduce the absorbency of your towel and effect its lifespan.



It is recommended to cold machine wash your towels for majority of the cycles, however a warm machine wash every now and then will help break up any body oils that may have been absorbed during use.



It is recommended to tumble dry your towels regularly. To avoid over drying your towels, a lower setting is always recommended.

If you prefer to line dry your towels, take them off the line before they are completely dry and finish them off in the dryer to give them a fluffy finish. Remember, tumble drying generally improves the absorbency of the pile whilst keeping your towel soft and fluffy.

Towel Care Tips & Tricks

We recommend washing and drying your towels before you use them. Some new towels feature temporary finishes which can prevent full absorbency. Washing your bath towels first will remove any finishes and promote maximum absorbency. Good quality bath towels can last for up to 10 years with the right care. Always check the care label for specific instructions before washing.


  • Vinegar Is Not Just For Salads

Pre-wash your towels with similar colours in warm water using around half the amount of washing powder than you usually use with 1 cup of white vinegar. The vinegar will help make your colours fast and prevent bleeding and it will also dissolve any detergent residue so you can keep using vinegar every 4 to 5 washes to retain absorbency.


  • No Bleach Please

Bleach can weaken fibres over time and make towels less absorbent. It will also eventually begin to yellow-white towels. Fabric softeners should also be used with caution as they can leave a waxy type build-up which reduces absorbency and could damage fibres.


  • Keep It Regular

Research has shown bath towels can retain a build-up of dead skin cells and are prone to mould if not dried thoroughly on a heated towel rail after use. We recommend washing towels every 3 to 5 uses to keep them fresh.


  • Home And Dry

Dry bath towels immediately after washing, leaving them damp increases the chance of mould spores developing and they can develop a musty smell. Line dry or tumble dry following the specific care instructions on the towel. Bath Towels with decorative trims or borders may not be able to be tumble dried or should be dried on a lower heat. Tumble drying your towels for too long can damage fibres and lessen absorbency.


Towel Buying Guide

Sizing Up The Situation


There are two standard sizes for bathroom towels, the basic 70x140cm bath towel, an everyday size suitable for everyone and the luxurious 80x160cm bath sheet which offers a spa like coverage wrapping around you completely. To coordinate there are hand towels 40x60cm and face cloths 33x33cm.


What’s In The Weight?


Generally bath towel weight is measured in GSM or grams per square metre. A lower gram towel will be lighter and thinner making it ideal for pets, the gym or anywhere you require a fast drying towel.

A medium weight towel is a good choice for an everyday family towel or for the beach. This towel will have a good absorbency and thickness but will still be reasonably easy care.

Lastly a dense, heavy weight towel will have a luxurious, thick and soft feel with superior absorbency but it will take longer to dry and you may not be able to fit as many in the washing machine at one time.


Choose Your Cotton


Combed Cotton Towels

A process completed before the fibre is woven that removes the very short fibres leaving long, smooth and continuous strands. This results in a superior quality yarn that is durable and very soft. Everything you want in a bath towel.


Zero Twist Cotton Towels

Zero twist technology coats fibres in a casing that dissolves when the yarn is dyed instead of twisting it. The lack of twists create more surface area which allows the fibre to absorb moisture more easily and increases airflow resulting in a faster drying towel with a beautiful plush handle. Zero twist bath towels can absorb up to four times the moisture by weight than conventional bath towels.


Egyptian Cotton Towels

Egyptian cotton is stronger and more absorbent than regular cotton and so lends itself wonderfully to bath towels. Long staple fibres create a soft and fluffy feel for a little bit of luxury every day.


Turkish Cotton Towels

Grown exclusively in Turkey, Turkish cotton has longer fibres and is expertly spun into a silk like fine yarn. The superiority of Turkish cotton bath towels with their dense loops and extra absorbency makes them the absolute ultimate in luxury for the bathroom. Often popular in high end hotels and spas, bring that level of opulence into your own bathroom with a Turkish towel.


Jacquard Cotton Towels

Jacquard woven towels are composed on a unique weaving loom, fitted with a jacquard patterning instrument. Which can produce a wide variety of intricate patterns and designs. Fabrics with a jacquard weave are typically robust and more durable than those with basic weaves.

Bought 8 sets for an air bnb and absolutely love them. They have started to pull a little but nothing that’s saying I need to replace them by next summer. but considering they have been washed and dried daily for over 6 months I would not complain. Haven’t lost their initial fluff at all

I purchased 2 of these highly absorbent towels on 3 Feb’24. They were washed first, with laundry powder, and have been used on 3 occasions since. The quality of the cotton makes these lovely, highly absorbent towels, very good to dry with and so soft to use. I highly recommend these towels.

Bought 4 of these in November 2023. Really soft but the sides of the towels are unravelling. Have already taken one back (in January) and got a replacement now another one has gone. The stitching of the sides are letting down what would be a 5 star towel. Will take back the second towel for another replacement but won’t buy anymore of these.

I bought this on click and collect. 500gms apparently means the towel is so thin that you can see through it when you hold it up to the light.
