Hand towels are significantly smaller than bath towels, generally 30x60 cm
and are used for drying one's hands after washing them. The style choices in
the hand towel segment has unlimited possibilities and with the wide variety
of towels in the market, it can be challenging to determine which type is
best for use.
The various styles of hand towel
available are terry, valour, jacquard, printed and embellished. The loops of
the hand towel do the drying, thick loops are packed so closely that one can
barely see the fabric base. High quality hand towels can last for years as
these are securely stitched and tightly woven.
Cotton is the most preferred fabric to manufacture hand towels as it is
hydrophilic, which means it has a strong affinity for water and efficiently
absorbs and removes the water from the hand.
