Have you ever wondered how a towel can make or break your day? I have had my fair share of having to deal with mediocre quality towels that either do not absorb water very well or they shed fluff onto my skin. And this is not the worst part. I once committed a horrible mistake of throwing our clothes and towels into the washing machine, instead of washing them separately and ended up with our clothes all covered in fluff. GASP! I have since learned my lesson but was also bent on investing in better quality towels for the entire household. I’m so glad that I found Uchino because it certainly changed our lives for the better!
Uchino is a Japanese brand that is known for its dedication in its desire to create the world’s finest towels and towel wear with quality materials according to Uchino quality standard. Uchino believes that quality towels should begin with the start of life. Great emphasis has been placed on the manufacturing process, and the towels have acquired Oeko-Tex® Class 1 (for infants) Certification, which is the most stringent quality standard for the towel industry. This means that the items are pleasant to use and can be trusted even when coming into contact with babies’ mouths.
My husband and I got our hands on the Uchino Air Waffle towels in pink for me and blue for him. Like its name suggests, the texture of the towel is pleasantly light and airy, with a unique waffle weave design. I’m not sure about you but it is definitely my first time coming across such a towel! The material is 100% cotton and made of hollow fibre. It is now my favorite towel of the lot because it is soft, breathable, absorbent and light weight! I have bad experiences with towels getting ridiculously damp after just one use but the Uchino Air Waffle dries in no time! Super like!
Uchino also has a wide range of towel products that cater to babies and young children.
The Accototo range features really adorable designs like marine life, safari animals and farm animals!
Besides sleep wear and towels, there are also small handkerchiefs and bibs.
Apart from the Accototo kids range, Uchino also has Hello Kitty and Disney themed towels. I really had a hard time choosing and finally decided on the Minnie Mouse towels for Little misschewy! I’m sure she loves her new towels as she excitedly went, “Mao! Mao!” (Which means ‘mouse’. LOL), and also “Chanelle 的!” Yes, that’s Chanelle’s names being embroidered on all her towels!
If you like personalizing your stuff, you would be glad that Uchino provides this awesome embroidery service! However, embroidery service is not available for the Uchino Air Waffle range as it is too thin to be embroidered. I selected the cursive fonts B in 2cm for Little misschewy’s bath towel and 1cm for her face and hand towels.
These are just some of the many icons that are available and they are optional.
The Uchino staff at the store let me have a preview of the final artwork before the real work began!
I was impressed by this embroidery machine. It is very high tech and Chanelle’s towels were all embroidered at lightning speed! I would say it took only about 10 minutes per towel!
Fresh out of the embroidery machine!
The embroidery adds a nice personalized touch to the towels and I reckon it makes a really great gift!
Don’t you think that this is really cool? You can even turn your drawings into embroidery on towels!
Getting all warm and snuggly in her new towel after her bath!
