Of all sorts of towels available we highly recommend linen towels.

1. Bath Towels or bath sheets are used to wipe the moisture off our bodies after taking a bath or a shower. The most popular standard size is 75 x 150 cm although other sizes can be found easily.

June 15, 2012 Posted by admin

For beach we usually use a bit larger towels than those at home. For its perfect water absorbing qualities linen towels are the ideal choice for luxurious beach towels. We expect beach towels to soak up water fast and then dry out quickly too and that also are the characteristics of linen fabric. All this and also light weight makes linen towels irreplaceable for quality beach time.

Because of large size and thinness, linen beach towels can serve lots of purposes. They are used for comfort and hygiene purposes, i.e. sit, lie, and stand on to avoid doing this directly on the ground. Large beach towel can be a make shift garment or a blanket, or put on as an extra layer of clothing during cooler days, or can be worn tied around the waist like a skirt or just under the armpits like a long dress, usually in warm environments or on the beach.

Huckaback Towels & Linen Towels

April 19, 2012 Posted by admin

A term “huckaback towels” is probably familiar for all those looking for quality towels. As this blog is called Huckaback Towels and is dedicated to quality home textile, let me introduce to you this type of towels.

Huckaback is a special rough weave of cotton or linen fabric. It is most often used to produce cloth towels: bath towels, tea towels, hand towels, dish towels. Because of this special loose weave the surface of the fabric is uneven with lots of space for threads to widen when the moisture is absorbed. This quality makes a towel highly absorbent and also results in a micro-massaging effect of the towel. The huckaback weaving pattern comes from the ancient textile traditions of Germany and Scandinavia.

Although cotton huckaback towels can be found on the market, linen towels are those most often associated with the term. Linen bath towels, linen tea towels, linen dish towels – mostly all are huckaback. (more…)
