100% Turkish cotton
Before using your towel, we suggest to soak your towel over night in cold water and then hang it to dry. This encourages the fibres of the towel fabric to bloom which initiates their natural softening process and conditions the cotton fabric to be more adsorptive.
Machine wash on delicate, or hand wash. Wash with like colors. Wash in cold water. Do not wash in hot water as hot water will cause shrinkage. This towel is pre-washed, which means the fabric will be soft to the touch, and retain the same hand feel, size, and quality after washing if cared for properly. After the first wash, please allow for minor shrinkage; however, if cared for properly in cold water, the shrinkage should be only very minimal.
Hanging to dry is recommended over machine drying. If you need to machine dry, dry on low heat, but please note there may be some shrinkage after machine-drying.
Do not use bleach or fabric softeners.
No need to iron.

Given the artisanal make of our towels, please allow for slight natural variations in color, size, weave with each unique piece; however, if there are differences present, these differences are not usually noticeable.
Light to middle weight: 300 grams, 250 gsm.
GSM means grams per square meter, it is the metric measurement of the weight of a fabric. The GSM measurement can help you decide the best weight of fabric for your needs and usage.
The higher the GSM of the fabric, the denser and heavier the fabric will be. A lower GSM does not necessarily mean lower quality, but it will mean the towel is lighter in weight and usually thinner. All Pokoloko towels are carefully pre-sreened and pre-tested for quality, absorptiveness, durability, and style. Our towels range from 140gsm (thinner) to 420gsm (thicker).
