Earth-Friendly Benefits Requires less laundering, less space and less drying time than a typical terrycloth towel.
Care Instructions Gentle laundering is best. Machine wash in warm or cold water with like colors. Tumble dry on low or line dry. Please do not use bleach, harsh detergents, dryer sheets or high heat. Wash before first use.
Please note: As this towel is hand-loomed, it may contain small imperfections from the weaving process such as tied-off threads. This is a common feature of handmade textiles and does not compromise the quality of the towel. Enjoy!
