At Asil, we can build up our quality concept on top of our suppliers’ quality. Overall, we believe in

“fit for purpose” and “right first time.” We always control all in-bound materials for conformity,

durability and lack of hazardous materials. Then we inspect the products at avery stage of

production and then we check again before and after packaging. We also encourage our customers

send a representative for a final supervision of randomly picked products just before shipment.

Kitchen Towels

Kitchen Towels

A pile of colourful towels.A towel is a piece of absorbent fabric or paper used for drying or wiping

the body or a surface. It draws moisture through direct contact, often using a blotting or a rubbing

motion. In households, several types of fabric towels are used, including hand towels (small towels

placed by a sink for drying the hands), bath towels (large towels for drying the hair and body after a

bath or shower) and kitchen towels, which are used for drying dishes. In warm climates, people

may also use beach towels, which are large towels used for drying off after swimming and for

placing on beach surfaces. Common household textile towels are made from cotton, rayon,

bamboo, non-woven fibers, and a few other materials. Paper towels are provided in commercial or

office bathrooms for users to dry their hands. Paper towels are also used in households for a range

of wiping, cleaning and drying tasks.



According to Middle Ages archeological studies, “… closely held personal items included the ever

present knife and a towel.”

However, the invention of the towel is commonly associated with the city of Denizli, Turkey, in the

17th century. These Turkish towels began as a flat, woven piece of cotton or linen called a

pestamel, often hand-embroidered. Long enough to wrap around the body, pestamel were

originally fairly narrow, but are now wider and commonly measure 90 by 170 centimetres (35 in ×

67 in). Pestamel were used in Turkish baths as they stayed light when wet and were very absorbent.

As the Ottoman Empire grew, so did the use of the towel. Weavers were asked to embroider more

elaborate designs, aided by their knowledge of carpet-weaving. By the 18th century, towels began to

feature loops sticking up from the pile of the material. These looped towels became known as

havly; over time, this word has changed to havlu, the Turkish word for towel, and means ‘with

loops’. Towels didn’t become affordable until the 19th century, with the cotton trade and

industrialization. With mechanization, cotton terry-towelling became available by the yard as well

as being stocked in shops as pre-made towels.

Now, towels are available in a variety of sizes, materials and designs. Some hotels which provide

towel and bath robes embed washable RFID tags into their linens to deter theft.

A bath towel is used for drying the body when it is wet, such as after bathing or showering. It is

typically rectangular, with a typical size around 30 in × 60 in (76 cm × 152 cm).

A beach towel is usually a little bit larger a bath towel. Although it is often used for drying off after

being in the water, its chief purpose is to provide a surface to lie on. They are also worn for privacy

while changing clothes in a public area, and for wiping sand from the body or objects. Beach towels

often have colorful patterns.

A foot towel is a small, rectangular towel which, in the absence of a rug, carpet or bathroom mat, is

placed on the bathroom floor to stand on after finishing a shower or bath.

A hand towel is significantly smaller than a bath towel (perhaps 12 in × 24 in (30 cm × 61 cm)), and

is used for drying the hands after washing them.

An oven towel or confectioner’s mitten is a multipurpose household towel used for a kitchen or

shop applications. The term came into use within Irish communities after a textile mogul, Owen

Valley, created the line based on his own towel experiences.

A paper towel is a piece of paper that can be used once as a towel and then be disposed of. A

perforated roll of paper towels is normally mounted on a rod a little longer than the width of the

roll, or in an alternative type of hanger that has protrusions on ears, the protrusions fitting into the

ends of the paper towel roll. Paper towels can also be found packaged like facial tissues, as

individual folded sheets.

A disposable towel (or non-woven towel) is a towel intended for a single user, but not necessarily

for a single use, as it can be reused but not washed. It is often made of non-woven fibers, and

popular for the hospital, hotel, geriatric and salon or beauty industries because it guarantees

cleanliness and hygiene every time.

A show towel is a bath or hand towel that has had trim—such as satin, lace or linen stitched onto it,

or embroidery done on it—mainly to simply “look nice”. They are used to add a decorative touch—

usually to a bathroom—most commonly in the USA. They are generally not to be used to for

drying, as regular washing ruins the added trim, and the towel buckles as well (because the towel

usually shrinks differently than the trim).

A sports towel, or (synthetic) chamois, is a towel originally developed for swimmers and divers,

favored for its super-absorbent qualities. Sports towels can be wrung out when saturated, leaving

the towel able to absorb water again, although not dry. Those qualities, along with their compact

nature, have further popularized sports towels amongst general outdoor and athletic enthusiasts.

The absorbent material in sports towels may be composed of viscose, PVA or microfiber, with

polyester woven in for durability. Some manufacturers incorporate a silver ion or compound

treatment into their towels to better inhibit microbial growth and associated odors.[citation needed]

A sweat towel or gym towel, often of similar size to a hand towel, is used during a workout to dry

oneself from sweat or make a barrier between the gym machines and the skin. It can also be

required in gyms in order to wipe down the machines after use[citation needed].

The term kitchen towel can refer to either a dish towel or to a paper towel, the latter usage being

primarily British.

A tea towel or drying-up cloth (English), or dish towel (American) is a cloth which is used to dry

dishes, cutlery, etc., after they have been washed. In 18th century England, a tea towel was a special

linen drying cloth used by the mistress of the house to dry her precious and expensive china tea

things. Servants were considered too ham-fisted to be trusted with such a delicate job, although

housemaids were charged with hand-hemming the woven linen when their main duties were

completed. Tea towels have been mass-produced since the Industrial Revolution.

A flannel, wash cloth, washcloth, wash rag, face-washer (Australian) or face cloth is a small square

about the width of a hand towel, and is used by wetting, applying soap to the towel, and then using

the towel to apply the soap to skin. This increases abrasion, and can remove dead skin cells from

the skin more effectively than just manual application and rubbing of soap. In some parts of the

world, washing mitts are used for this purpose.

A wet towel (oshibori) is used in Japan to wash the hands before eating. It is often given to

customers of an izakaya.

A cloth towel dispenser or continuous cloth towel is a towel manipulated by a series of rollers, used

as an alternative to paper towels and hand dryers in public washrooms. These may have a lower

environmental impact than paper towels, though concerns over hygiene mean they are not used by

some organisations and have greatly declined in popularity. They can also be used in dangerous

“choking games”.

A sanitary towel or sanitary napkin is an absorbent item worn by a woman while she is

menstruating.A bar towel is an absorbent, usually small towel used in bars and often given away

free as promotional items.

A fingertip towel is a small towel that is folded and placed next to the sink or in the guest bedroom.

Hosts often pin a note to these towels indicating that they are for guest use.

A golf towel is a small towel which usually comes with a loop or clip to attach to a golf bag for

drying hands, balls, and clubs.

A baby towel is a smaller towel characterized by an extra sewn-on hood at one corner to cover a

baby’s head.

A Peshtemal (or pestemal) is a unique, multipurpose towel with over 600 years of history coming

from Anatolia.
