About this product
This Vintage Waffle face washer combines expertly woven fibres with the comfort of lived-in textiles. Threads of cotton and linen intertwine into small plaits, creating a subtle mesh pattern. The towels are highly absorbent, quick-drying and lightweight.
Since 1934, Kontex based in Imabari, Japan has been producing its textiles with traditional looms and weaving techniques. Compared to newer technologies which are used for speedy mass production, this method is more time consuming, but shows better results in absorption capacity, texture softness and fast drying. Furthermore, the yarn is less like to get damaged which is a common problem in industrial manufacturing due to the stresses of high speed weaving. All textiles are woven strictly from cotton and linen. The fibres are washed and cleansed with the water from nearby Mt. Ishizuchi with low mineral content. For dyeing processes natural orange oil is used.
