This long and thin towel is both sturdy and soft to keep up with you during all your workouts – from an energizing jog to a restorative yoga session. They're super absorbent and quick-drying with an added bonus of being anti-odor and anti-microbial (thanks to the charcoal). Comprised of six-layers of a gauze-like fabric called kaya, these towels are durable and long-lasting.
We visited Maruyama Fiber Industry who make Nawrap towels in Nara, and learned about the traditional weaving technique native to the region. Dating back hundreds of years, kaya (mosquito net) is a fabric weave that has holes less than 1mm in size and lets wind pass freely in and out without letting in mosquitos. Kaya, as mosquito nets, aren't used as often as they were in Japan, but they still in many other parts of the world.
