The secret to Daito Shingu's soft, breathable towels lies their layered gauze cotton structure. Made from five layers of light gauze cotton, every piece works together to absorb more surface moisture than regular cotton towels. The light and airy gauze ensures that the towel dries quickly, and is soft to the touch of even the smallest child. This all-natural towel is made using a traditional Japanese technique called wazarashi, a laborious four-day process that removes impurities from the cotton fibers. The resulting super-soft fabric is ideal for people and babies with sensitive skin. Materials: 100% cotton Care: Machine wash with warm water. Do not bleach.
