We offer five great ranges of towels. Each has its own functionality and use around the home.
The standard body towel for drying after a shower or bath.
This towel is a little larger than a bath towel making it great for drying off and wrapping up in, especially for those colder months.
For drying hands after washing. Handy in the bathroom, powder room, laundry and kitchen. Note: Hand towels get used a lot, so look for durable options when selecting these.
These are usually used in and out of the shower and bath, for washing face, hands and face. Also very useful for sponging down the kids.
Dense and absorbent, a bath mat is placed on the floor and used as you step in and out of the shower and bath.

Weights of towelling
Towel weight is measured in grams per square metre (GSM). As a general rule of thumb, the higher the GSM, the heavier and more absorbent the towel will be.
Medium weight towels are just as absorbent but are lighter, cooler and often faster drying compared to heavy towels that feel warm and luxurious when wrapped around you but take much longer to dry.
How do I care for my towels?
Always wash your new towels in a cool/warm machine wash before you use them. Sometimes it can take a few washes for a towel to achieve its maximum absorbency.
Avoid using fabric softeners and detergents containing optical brighteners which leave a ”coating” on the towelling loops, which in turn reduces their absorbency. We also recommend you avoid using oxidising/chlorine based products.
Tumble drying on a medium heat will give your towels the softest finish. Alternatively, shake your towels and hang them on a washing line, taking care not to leave towels out too long in the hot sun.
