Authentic Imabari Towel - Gauze, Black (Large)
This listing is for one (1) authentic imabari bath towel (large), manufactured by Yoshii in Imabari, Ehime Prefecture, Japan.
The products that bear the authentic imabari towel label / tag (photo coming soon) symbolize Japanese dedication and craftsmanship. The highly prized tag signifies that the towel has met rigid standards, including "the five second rule". This inspection checks for water absorbency--whether the towel will sink within 5 seconds when placed on water.
As responsible pup owners of this store, we have tested the pawsomeness of the towel and it undeniably lives up to all the excitement that surrounds it--in Japan and around the world. We have gifted it, we have embroidered on it, and it's simply amazing. It's the pawfect gift for the human who has everything (or the human who doesn't like to throw hints about what he or she likes).

When you purchase an authentic imabari towel, you are contributing to a very special recovery project designed to revitalize an industry that was once in a dire business position due to competing, more affordable but lower quality products made in other countries. Imabari, Japan, has led the towel industry for 120 years. The soft water of Imabari, Japan, is key to producing especially soft towels.
These towels are not as thick and large as the bath towels we've grown accustomed to in the United States. They may be smaller, but they certainly retain their softness and absorbency over time. To prolong the life and quality of your imabari towel, please carefully follow the care instructions, above.
Design Information: This towel bears the authentic imabari towel label / tag as well as a label marked with, "YOUTH". This does not imply that this towel is "youth size". The manufacturer decided to include the said label to honor a revered poet who bears that surname--such poet is the inspiration behind the towel design.
