Don’t just use any itchy old towel in your beautiful bathroom. Did you know that there are different types, textures, materials, softness, and levels of absorbency for towels and other bath linens?

Read our towel guide below to find out which towel type is best for your needs and lifestyle.

Terrycloth

This is a more of a texture type, and one of the most common and popular towels in the market. Terrycloth is a cloth with long loops that make the surface more absorbent. These towels could be 100% cotton, or mixed with synthetic materials.

Good for: Any type of towel

Waffle

Another towel texture type, the waffle is exactly that—it is loomed or knitted in a honeycomb-style waffle pattern, making it light and highly absorbent. The towels above are available at AC+632 at Greenbelt 5.

Good for: Guest towels, washcloths, and bathrobes

Egyptian cotton 

Egyptian cotton fibers are lightweight, and so the towels are lightweight and easier to dry. The fibers also produce more intense fabric colors.

Good for: Bath towels, hand towels, guest towels, and floor towels

Organic

Bamboo and other types of organic towels are made from purely organic material sources, are pesticide-free, and leave a smaller carbon footprint. This type of towel doesn’t tend to get fuzzy in the washing machine.

Good for: Bath towels; great for baby towels, too

Pima

Also called Supima, this is a type of cotton grown in the American southwest, and is a strong, absorbent towel fiber.

Good for: Bath towels

Microfiber

Microfiber, as the name suggests, has some of the finest and smallest fibers, which makes it even finer than silk. Because of this, a microfiber towel is softer and more absorbent than the usual towel, but it wicks away moisture as well, so it dries much faster.


Aquadry bath towels are made of this revolutionary fiber, making it luxurious to the touch and super-absorbent. It dries 50 percent faster than other towel fabrics, and you could simply pat instead of rub to dry yourself.
