2.5-PLY GAUZE TOWEL | BATH TOWEL
Neither 2- nor 3-ply.
Woven layers designed for comfort.
We took the middle layer of the traditional 20-count 3-ply gauze and replaced it with a 1/2-weight weave. We also utilize an irregular weave to produce a unique, exquisitely soft texture. Lighter, softer and quick to dry, and still highly absorbent, the 2.5-PLY GAUZE TOWEL comes in slightly larger Medium and Large sizes, plus a longer scarf type. We created a natural depth in colour by slightly varying the dye for the warp and weft.

Over one hundred years of knowledge and technical experience,
combined with innovation and creativity.
We wish to preserve the traditional production of Senshu towels, and we want to create the best. To do that, we must utilize fully our historical knowledge and technical expertise, and be unafraid of new ideas in technology and design. We are always reviewing materials, function, and design in the pursuit of better products.
Superior absorbency, luxurious softness and the feeling of fresh,
new ‘clean’ – thanks to the atozarashi process.
A characteristic of the Senshu towel is atozarashi – a post-weave refining process. Towels are traditionally woven with starched fibres, as this increases durability, but the starch can repel water and thus affects absorbency. By washing and bleaching after weaving, the starch, oils, and other impurities in the fibre can be removed, allowing better absorbency while preserving its fluffy texture.
