Manufacturing process

Manufacturing starts with the selection of only the highest quality yarn to ensure we weave the softest, most absorbent and durable towel. Our unique weaving method ensures that the weight of our pile is in the loop of the towel, which is the part that actually dries you. We have capabilities to manufacture not only plain dyed towels but also jacquards, dobby designs and our selection of decorative headers is second to none.

Once the towel is woven, it goes through a dyeing processes ending with a Stenter, a Stenter is a continuous dryer which dries and sets the dimensions of the towel according to specification. This is why our towels retain their size and shape, wash after wash.

The final stage is hemming where the towel is finished, packed and ready for distribution.

Our quality assurance team ensures they check the towel at every step of the manufacturing process to ensure only the highest quality of towels are released to the market place.
