The city of Imabari in Ehime Prefecture on the southeastern island of Shikoku is known as a port and trading center for the Seto Inland Sea that separates three of Japan's main islands, but especially since the end of the 19th century, it's best known for its towels. The city's 200 towel factories account for 60% of the towels in Japan, making Imabari synonymous with high quality.
And this is exactly what you get with the Imabari Kinsei Four Towels of Bliss Box: two bath (60 x 120 cm/24 x 47") and two face (33 × 80 cm/13 x 31") towels made of fine, 100% Imabari cotton, and dyed using the umezome plum-dye method that gives the fabric a very soft peach-color tint. Amazingly soft, beautiful, and packed in a white wooden box like all traditional Japanese handicrafts, these towels are great items for treating yourself and even better as a high-quality Japanese gift!
