Imabari Towel Handkerchief by Hartwell
These towel handkerchiefs are by Hartwell, a towel maker in Imabari, Japan. The town of Imabari in Ehime is known as centre of towel production, and for its dedication to ever softer and high quality examples of their work.
With a light blue surface, these are short loop pile handkerchiefs, that are soft in the hand or to mop a brow.
Hartwell were founded in 1930, and are among the many Imabari towel companies that seek to outdo each other with innovation and improvements in making. The companies recognised as authentic Imabari based producers carry the blue, red and white circle Imabari logo - which is known in Japan as a mark of quality.
The handkerchiefs are 14cm x 14cm.
