MOKU light towel is an unprecedentedly functional towel designed for ease of use in a variety of everyday situations.

These towels were made by Kontex (Imabari Japan), the company which has been making towels with precision and attention to detail in the selection of materials, weaving structure, processing methods, the sizes, weight and comfort in accordance with the concept and purpose since 1934.


Moku might be thin and not fluffy as the other towels but you will be surprised its water absorbency.   It can be squeezed out by hand and dried in a room in two hours, which is surprisingly quick drying.

It is light and compact (weighs only 50g) making it very portable. 

We love packing them in my bag going to the beaches, camping.  You can even wear it around your neck which can absorb sweat and protect your skin from direct sunlight! 

Moku is not only the towel you want to have in your bathroom but the towel you want to grab to go.

What is Imabari Towel?

Imabari, Ehime is a mecca of towels that has continued production for over 120 years.

There are almost 200 factories that twist yarn, dye yarn, fabricate towels, etc. at this great production site. 

Imabari towels’ softness and good water absorbency have especially gained popularity,and its name is recognized around the world.

The towels will sink within 5 seconds upon placing them into water. As a result, this also allows the towels to dry very quickly and is gentle on the user’s skin.

Due to the use of high-quality cotton and threads which are not hard-twisted so enables the softness to be maintained even after repeated uses and washing. This feature is said to be due to the use of soft underground water with very few impurities from Sojagawa River.

This water is gentle to the yarn and material of the towel and allows delicate and bright colours while bringing out the natural softness of the cotton used.
