Arta Ahura Towels are superior quality, made according to centuries old-methods that create more gently than speeded-up factory methods. Not only are they fashioned gently by hand on slow looms, raw organic cotton is stronger, unstripped by chemicals which is the standard route to fast-forcing absorbency.
Care information for first-time buyers of raw organic cotton: Arta Ahura towels need soaking in plain water to 'teach' the cotton its natural absorbency. And then, once dry, they are ready to go, and improve with use and time, gaining softness and absorbency.
BEFORE FIRST USE -- RAW ORGANIC COTTON TOWELS ONLY
Soak in plain tap water for 6 hours.
If the water in your region is hard, add a cup of vinegar to soften it.
Hang to drip dry.
WASHING & DRYING
Machine wash at 30 degrees celsius.
Machine drying is possible, but will wear out fabrics quicker. arta ahura towels air dry quickly, saving energy.
Do not use fabric conditioner for any towels, as it coats the threads and reduces absorbency.
IF TASSELS COME LOOSE
These are all tied by hand and rarely come loose but if they do, simply retwist the threads and tie, or find someone with nimble fingers to help if you find it tricky!
