Striped Bath Towels

Striped Bath Towels

From an historical standpoint, the towel as we know it today, was invented in the city of Bursa, Turkey. Turkish towels are still considered to be the finest towels available and are talked about as being the Rolls Royce of towels. They are used for a number of things in addition to drying off the body. Nearly everyone has engaged in horseplay when they were snapped with the end of a towel like a whip. Towels, long ago, invaded the sports world as a way of showing support for the team, or in some cases surrender, as in throwing in the towel. This happens a lot in the boxing arena Striped bath towels are sometimes used as blankets, or as a sarong over a bathing suit, or in a myriad of other ways limited only by imagination.

Choosing striped bath towels for your lavatory means that you will always be in style, no matter what the prevailing thought on style. There is nothing like stepping out of a refreshing shower or hot bath and wrapping up in a soft and fluffy bath towel, especially if it smells good. Bath towels have evolved to where stripes are now as popular as solid colors. These towels sometimes come in all colors, and in both standard and extra large size. Many people resort to stripes as a way of sprucing up their bathroom décor by using a contrasting color to break up a monochrome color scheme. For instance, using a purple and green striped towel to compliment solid purple walls and shower curtain.

Traditional towel sets come with a solid color wash cloth and bath towel, but with a striped hand towel or bath sheet in the set. A traditional towel set consists of a wash cloth, a hand towel and a bath towel. A modern day towel set can include the latter with a large bath towel or bath sheet thrown in for good measure. The type of fabric used to make towels is also changing and growing. Many today are moving from the use of cotton towels to bamboo or hemp cloth because these crops and fabric are more eco friendly. Bamboo cloth is known to be safe for sensitive skin and is naturally antibacterial.

Cotton production uses more pesticide than any other crop making it a possible health hazard. It would stand to reason that the bigger the cotton towel the greater the danger of getting the residue of these pesticides in the towel, on your skin. Alternative cloths, such as hemp and bamboo don’t have this problem. And it is not an expensive switch. Striped bath towels do sometimes cost more than standard one color towels, however the cost is not prohibitive nor out of reach for most people. In today’s market there is no limit on the colors and types of striped bath towels available to consumers. In addition to going to the mall, one of the best places to look for variety in bedding is on the internet at websites such as Amazon.com, or Ebay or CraigsList.
