The luxurious Gauze & Pile towel provides two textures in one; both being highly absorbent, lightweight, and amazingly comfortable on the skin.
One side offers a super soft gauze and the other features Uchino’s famous ‘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 softener sparingly
Use softener only if the 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 after use.
- Use a dryer
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.
- If hang drying
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.
