Kontex of Imabara, Japan, have been producing exceptionally soft and beautiful towels of a supreme quality since 1934. The secret lies in the process. Instead of using fast, modern machinery, each towel is made from loosely spun threads on traditional, slow-moving looms. The gentle treatment of the cotton fibres results in a softer cloth. The finished fabric is then washed in naturally filtered glacier-water from Ishizuchi-san mountain.
Our choice of Kontex for our hotel is an example of our love of details.
