A lofty towel that combines the best qualities of gauze and pile.
The Inner Pile towel from Shinto is expertly hand woven on traditional shuttle looms, a process that takes a considerable amount of care and time. However, it is necessary to create a towel that has two outer layers of baby-soft gauze and an inner layer of highly absorbent cotton pile. The resulting towel is thick and fluffy yet soft and light and perfect for drying off after a bath or a just good snuggle when fresh from the dryer.

Care: Avoid pulling loose threads and instead snip them carefully with a pair of scissors. Do not use chlorine bleach. Wash with like colors, especially in the beginning. The texture may be affected by different washing machines and/or laundry soaps. Avoid the overuse of fabric softeners as this may damage the fibers and reduce absorbency. Pulling or snapping the towel lengthwise while wet can cause the piles (the loops in the toweling) to stretch, resulting in gaps in the material. Handle wet towels gently. For best results, washed towels should be hung to dry in a shady, well-ventilated area.
