Outline

A knitted jersey towel born from WORK-ER, a product brand of Wada Meriyasu Co., Ltd., which is a loopwheel factory in Wakayama. The fabric, knitted slowly and lightly by loopwheel machines which have existed since the Meiji Period and are now hard to find throughout the world, has unique expressions that are different inside and out. The looped towel makes use of the elasticity that only loopwheel fabric has, stretching both vertically and horizontally, and the cylindrical structures of the mechanics. As a "wearable towel," it can play an active role in various occasions in your life such as work, sport or fashion, by hanging, twisting, tying and wrapping. It is light and has outstanding water absorption.
