During the chilly winter months there is nothing better than to sink into a steamy hot bath or a therapeutic shower. These are also great ways to relax muscles after a work out at the gym or a run. When the water is turned off and the chill of the air starts to hit our skin we reach for a towel. As a towel ages it becomes thin and its fibres become hardened To avoid this unpleasant end to a wonderful shower or bath think about investing in some good quality towels. When choosing a towel consider the size, softness and colour. A cotton towel made of organic cotton is a great option. Choose one with a high gsm (grams per square metre) for long term comfort. Choosing a good quality towel will transform an everyday activity into a pleasure. These towels are made by KSL Living in France. For more of their products see here.
