Danish homeware design studio Tekla keeps branching out. From their original line of bedding they’ve slowly added to the collection with cozy plaids and cool-looking bathrobes, and we keep loving every single thing. What we find special about the product line – except for the mindful material selection and straightforward design – is their choice of colors (lots of pale pastels), which somehow feels unexpected yet totally on point.
Their latest release is the Organic Terry Towel, and it’s no exception. Coming in three rather perfect dyes – ivory, kodiak brown, and lavender – they’re all crafted in the hills of Braga and Guimaraes in Portugal from high-quality organic and Oeko-tex certified cotton. The super combed cotton creates a softer, stronger and smoother fabric, while the extra thick 600g terry weave is said to also make it super absorbent and long-lasting. All things to desire.
Now, the life of a terry towel can be rather rough, and for this reason Tekla provides some pretty great care instructions on how to keep theirs in a pristine state; meaning fluffy and absorbent. We figure this goes for all things terry, so hear it out: Soak the towel in cold water for 24 hours before the first wash. This is for better absorbency and strength. Wash at low temperatures with natural detergents (no softeners or bleachers) – this for the sake of the environment – and tumble dry on low heat with dryer balls. If a loop snags: cut, don’t pull. We’ll definitely take that advice.
