The front side is 100% pile with a compelling design.
As soon as you pick it up,
you will be impressed
by the beauty of towel.
GRAPHIC LINE is not simply towels with beautiful patterns.
Through Fujitaka's advanced technological capabilities, this towel series has been produced with the utmost attention to comforting details such as a plush texture, while visually delighting through color, weave, and superior artisanship.
This towel is our # 01 model.
The surface is 100% pile; but none of its edges are raised by hems because of a technique called "pile winding.” It allows the thin stripes- the accent of this design- to be seen more naturally.
Exquisite beauty takes time,
skill, and effort.
Pile winding requires a high level of expertise to wind the edges and hems to the underside and then sew them together inside to conceal them.
As shown in the photo, special weaving techniques and skilled crafts people are required to make the front and back colors completely different.
Fujitaka thinks the technological challenges and extra time consumption are worth it.
Through trial and error and consultations with designers, we’ve been able to produce this most beautiful towel.
The basic specifications of # 01 are the same as Fujitaka's popular towel, ZUTTO.
Please enjoy the quality towel with a beautiful design that can be used comfortably for a long time.
Tips for using our towels
Our towels are made of delicate fabric.
Here are some tips for using them comfortably,
over a long period.
- First Use
- New towels are nicer to use if you wash them once.
- At first the towels may shed some fine fluff, but this will stop after several washes.
※ This does not include towels with zero-twist yarn (non-intertwined threads)
- New towels may fade in color if they are stored in that state for a long number of years, so please wash them as soon as you get them.
- Washing Instructions
- Wash towels so that they are immersed in plenty of water.
- Washing machines with a drum only spray a small amount of water onto the laundry to remove the dirt, which risks the pile hardening. If you are using a drum-type machine then it's better to use the dryer feature to finish off the towels and plumpen the pile. Select a wash setting that pumps through as much water as possible.
- Please note that there is a risk of the pile being caught if you wash towels with things that have zips or velcro.
- Choosing a washing detergent
- Please avoid using detergents with whitening fluorescents or chlorine bleach, as there is a risk of discoloration.
- Please refrain from using fabric softener as this may damage the absorbency of the towel. We only recommend using it for towels that have hardened with age.
- Leaving the water to evaporate from towels over a long period of time causes the pile to collapse and harden.
- Please dry towels quickly, as the pile will collapse and harden if the towels are left as is after the water has evaporated.
- Dry in a well-ventilated shaded area as strong sunlight causes fading and makes the towels hard.
- Please note that leaving towels wet can cause odors, fungi and bacteria to form.
- To sustain the volume
- When drying your towel after it has been washed, please take both ends, shake it with a snap, pull it into shape and leave to dry to ensure that you always have a soft, plump towel to use. Shaking it in the air makes the fibers stand up and ensures a fluffy finish.
- Try not to crush towels as far as possible and store them in a plumped-up state.
- Store in a well-ventilated place, as towels will absorb moisture.
- If the pile ends up snagged
- Our towels are made of delicate fabric, so the pile may end up getting snagged on a nail etc.
- If any of the pile is sticking out, trim it at the base with a pair of scissors. In this event, please be careful not to damage the base of the fabric.
- If the hem or the selvedge ends up frayed, you can stop any further fraying by going over it with a sewing machine.
