Made in India
36 x 36 cm
Only 1 left in stock
Hand spun and handwoven towel made in India, near Kolkata. This deep indigo cotton towel is very soft, thin and lightweight. Beautifully hand dyed with vegetable dye, there may be some variation on the surface. The deep indigo blue has a hint of warm golden hue making the textile even more elegant. On a corner of each towel there’s a small cotton tab for hanging. Over time, these towels will create fading in colour with use and improve their softness and water absorption with repeated use and washing. We hope you enjoy the texture that changes as you use it.
Not only are they great as face and hand towels, but these towels can also be used as beautiful dining placemats, adding texture and warmth to any table set-ups.
*Please wash the towel once by itself before use.
Since 2006, Japan

“Babaghuri” is the name of agate collected in the Gujarat region of India.
It is a brand that started by German fashion and textile designer Jurgen Lehl who had a deep passion for nature. Since 2006, Babaghuri has been incorporating craftsmanship as an extension of Jurgen Lehl’s lifestyle that strived to provide what he wore, ate, and everything he needed to live in harmony without destroying nature and follow the path back to nature.
Babaghuri uses natural and sustainable materials like bamboo and hand-spun cotton to lessen the impact the brand has on the environment. Even after Jurgen Lehl’s death in 2014, the company continues to operate with his emphasis on the beauty and uniqueness that can only be found in hand-crafted products. In addition to clothes, Babaghuri also produces tea cultivated in Okinawa, additive-free soap, and small items such as baskets, towels, and tableware. Natural cotton is hand-spun, hand-woven and dyed with plants and vegetation, all of which emphasizes the evidence of handicrafts.
Because this fabric uses natural dyes, it may fade or discolor due to sweat, friction, strong acidity (citrus juice, etc.), or strong alkalinity (soap solution, etc.). It is recommended to use a neutral detergent for washing and wash it alone to prevent colour transfer.
