FAQ For The Towel
Q: How do I measure the quality of a towel?
A: There are many different components to a towel, but the general rule is that a heavier towel is suitable for the bathroom, where it can dry out easily between uses, whereas a lighter weight towel is better suited to the beach, where it gets more frequent use in one period. The yarn is very important and will reflect in the price of the towel.
Q: What does Gm2 mean?
A: Gm2 is a measure of weight: ‘grams per square meter’. For example, a towel 75cm wide x 150cm long that weighs 500 gm2 will be 0.562 grams per piece.
Q: What is a jacquard towel?
A: A jacquard towel is a towel made from coloured yarns to weave the pattern (Logo) into the towel. A jacquard towel is often made with two colours, but sometimes more colours more can be woven. A jacquard towel usually has the pattern (logo) in reverse on the back of the towel. (Like a negative).
Q: What is velour?
A: Velour is a process not a fibre. Velour is part of the finishing process of a towel. When a towel is made on a towel loom, there are terry loops on both sides of the towel. Part of the finishing process is to shave the top of the loops off one side to create a soft velvety finish on the towel. You cannot ‘velour’ both sides of the towel. Another term for velour is ‘shearing’ or ‘sheared’.
Q: Why don't velour towels dry as well as terry towels?
A: The velour side of the towel is definitely not meant for drying…it is meant to be sat on or laid on the beach! The scientific action of water on the velour means that the water does not absorb as easily and you should always use the terry side to dry yourself.
Q: Do towels shrink?
A: Shrinkage will occur with all towels made of natural fibres like cotton and the amount of shrinkage will range from 4 -10%. Our jacquard towels are supplied in the natural or loom state form, so have not been pre-shrunk. Once washed, as per our washing instructions, the towels will shrink, become more fluffy and the pile becomes soft and dense and less likely to pull. There will always be a little pilling. Towels washed in hot water or dried at hot temperatures will shrink excessively. Loom state jacquard items normally shrink more than piece dyed bath towels.
Q: What is the difference between a jacquard towel and a plain dyed towel?
A: A jacquard towel is made on a jacquard loom and uses coloured (dyed) yarns to create a pattern (or logo or photo) on a towel. A plain dyed towel is made on the loom from yarn in its natural or raw state and then the whole towel is dyed, hence piece dyed towels.
Q: What is a dye batch?
A: Yarn or towels are dyed in big dying vats or vessels, similar to other textile dying methods. A dye batch for yarn or towels determines the minimum quantity that can be dyed at once.
Q: What is a screen print?
A: Towels can be screen printed using water based pigment dyes which are spread across the surface of the towel with a screen and squeegee. Lighter weight towels in terry or velour are best for screen printing. Screen or pigment printing is suitable for small quantities.
Q: What is a fiber reactive printed towel?
A: For larger towels quantities reactive dying is appropriate. Reactive dyes are used where many colours are required.Fiber reactive dyes react chemically to combine with and dye the fibers of the towel.. The soft handle is achieved by washing the towel after printing, which removes any excess inks and gives the towel a soft handle.
