Simple, elegant, and unbelievably light & soft: Uchino’s Air Waffle, the most lightweight towel the company produces, is woven with a unique hollow yarn of exceptional quality, that utilizes crevices within the yarn itself to generously capture air.
The fluffy and comfortable feel, as if the towel is woven only with air, is created using Uchino’s advanced technology and their long learned understanding and appreciation of the delicate sense of touch.
The unique three-dimensional texture of Uchino’s Air Waffle structure feels luxurious and gentle on the skin. The characteristic of this unique weave offers the finest cushioning properties, resulting in an exquisitely lightweight & resilient towel that is superior in water absorption, heat retention, and lightning quick to dry.
Specialising in textiles since 1947, UCHINO’s concept is to offer a unique experience with their originally developed materials using new technologies. Located in Tokyo, Japan, UCHINO is renowned for its commitment to protecting the environment while using natural materials and mineral dyes in all its fine line of merchandise.
With an approach of “towel comfort” for enjoying a premium and pleasant lifestyle, they research and develop superior quality towels from every angle of everyday use. UCHINO suggests to pleasurably spend the time between taking a bath and going to bed in an effort to enrich and bring more happiness to everyday life.
Washing with enough water so the towels swim inside the washing machine removes soil easier and prevents fluff from adhering to the towels.
Use softener only if the towels feel hard. Overuse may diminish towel absorbency and cause shedding.
Leaving towels wet will cause bacteria to breed and develop unpleasant odours. We recommend frequent laundering and immediately hanging to dry after use.
Tumble drying is the best way to get a fluffy finish. Please note that there are some towels that should not be placed in the tumble dryer.
Choose the delicate cycle used for wool and silk clothing and set water volume to maximum, this way you can prevent the pile from getting flat and stiff.
After the spin cycle and before hanging to dry, whip the towel strongly 10-20 times. The flattened terry pile will return to its original state and stay fluffy.
Then, hang towels to dry in the shade where there is good ventilation. Hanging them in the sun will fade the colour and harden the towel.
