EcoKnit Towels are an innovative product engineered to reduce towel-laundering costs.

Up to 41% quicker drying has a number of advantages, reduced energy consumption and utility bills, less emissions in processing – smaller carbon footprint, faster turnaround in stock from laundry to hotel and a more even throughput for laundries where traditionally the dryers cause a bottleneck.

EcoKnit Towels are snag resistant and therefore you cannot pull the loops, which are knotted into the base construction. The technology used in creating the towel, means EcoKnit lasts on average 2 to 3 times that of a traditional cotton towel.

Laundries use bleach (hydrogen peroxide or chlorine) in the wash to keep the towels white; these chemicals weaken the cotton & holes form in the base of the fabric.
EcoKnit towels do not suffer the same fate, they will not have holes forming and there is no weakening of the structure, allowing the towel to outlast any traditional woven towel.

EcoKnit towels use 15% less water in the wash than cotton woven towels, providing further cost and environmental savings and advantages.

Up to 41% less time in the tumble means more loads per day, increasing capacity through the laundry or nearly halving the time waiting around.

Due to the properties inherent in EcoKnit towels, you can now save on your water and energy consumption and use an eco friendly product that emits less carbon dioxide when been processed.

EcoKnit Towels guarantee to reduce your costs , carbon footprint and impact on the environment.
