The luxurious Gauze & Pile towel provides two textures in one, both being highly absorbent, lightweight and amazingly comfortable on the skin.
One side offers super soft gauze, the other Uchino’s infamous “Zero Twist” terry loops. The company’s finest, highly advanced spinning technology minimizes fluff while maximizing softness and airiness.
Made with a premium quality, extra-long staple cotton, Uchino’s Gauze & Pile towels have a wonderfully soft feel while also having the advantage of being highly absorbent. The Zero Twist cotton receives the utmost attention, with an additional combing step which ensures any smaller strands are removed, resulting in a beautiful towel with minimal fluff.
A uniquely luxuriously sized towel, the “Wide Bath Towel” dimension is ideal as a light summer blanket, and is also suitable year round as a baby or child’s blanket.
The Gauze & Pile towel feels delightful on your skin, every time you use it.
UCHINO Zero Twist cotton:
While many towels are created using twisted fibres to build up individual piles, the Zero Twist is a ‘magical’ yarn that utilizes almost Zero twisted fibre.
Made with a premium quality, extra-long staple cotton, Uchino’s proprietary Zero Twist towels have a wonderfully soft feel while also having the advantage of being highly absorbent.

・ Wash with more water
Washing with enough water so the towels swim inside the washing machine removes soil easier and prevents fluff from adhering to the towels.
・Use fabric softer sparingly
Use softener only when towels feel hard. Overuse may diminish towel absorbency and cause shedding.
・Do not leave wet
Leaving towels wet will cause bacteria to breed and develop unpleasant odours. We recommend frequent laundering and immediately hanging to dry.
・Shake out the towel before hanging to dry
After the spin cycle and before hanging to dry, whip the towel strongly 10-20 times. The terry pile that flattened during washing will return to its original state and stay fluffy.
・Hang in the shade; using a drying machine is also effective
Hang towels to dry in the shade and where there is good ventilation. Hanging them in the sun will fade the colour and harden the towel. Tumble drying is the best way to get a fluffy finish. Please note that there are some towels that cannot use a tumble dryer.
・Use the front-loading washing machine to your advantage
By using a front-loading washing machine through to the drying cycle, terry pile that was flattened during washing will return to its original state to maintain the fluffy feel. If the washing machine doesn’t have a drying function, you can prevent pile from being flattened and getting hard by choosing the delicate cycle used for wool and silk clothing and setting water volume to maximum.
・Avoid tumble-drying for the products below;
× Waffle-weave products (We recommend using the mesh laundry bags for Waffle-weave products.)
× Products sewn or rolled with tape along the four edges
× Products adorned with lace, rhinestones, etc.
・When tumble-drying the products below, use a lower temperature (70°C or lower)
