1. Always choose a 100% Cotton Towel
Whilst there are many other varieties and blends out there, cotton is still the best fibre for towelling as it is exceptional at absorbing water. This wonder material can hold up to 27 times its own weight in liquid and high quality raw materials are the key to luxury towelling.
2. Egyptian Cotton is Best
The climate in Egypt is arguably the best in the world for growing cotton, with intense heat, little rain and nourishing soil creating the perfect growing environment and giving Egyptian cotton the edge over other cotton varieties. The best cotton in the world is produced on the banks of the Nile River and the handpicked cotton retains its original smoothness and gloss throughout the manufacturing process. You should always look for certification of the origin of the cotton from the CEA (Cotton Egypt Association). Many producers claim to be using Egyptian cotton, but only if they have the CEA Certificate can they legally do so.
