Striped Cotton Face Towel – Indigo
Organic cotton 100%
Made in India
45 x 120cm
Hand spun and hand-woven into a beautiful striped pattern, this towel is made of cotton produced in Bihar state of North Western India, near the Nepal border. Stunningly hand-dyed with natural dyes, the colour of deep ocean blue comes from rich indigo. Each towel has a small cotton tab for hanging. The texture of this cotton is very soft, thin and lightweight. The feel and water absorption will be improved by repeated use and washings. Being handmade, each one features unique hues and patterns.
Not only great as a face and hand towel, but this long towel can also be used as a beautiful dining placemat (table runner) or even worn as a scarf, adding texture and warmth to your own style.
*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.
