Bath towels may seem like a simple and modest item in our homes, but have you considered upgrading your bath towels to something a little more luxurious? There’s a reason why the towels at spas and hotels seem incredibly soft and are noticeably beautiful – because it creates a sense of luxury, elevating the everyday experience of bathing to something more impactful, and it’s possible to achieve this at home.

If you want to enhance your self-care routine, consider introducing linen bath towels at home…

Why Linen Bath Towels?

Linen is a wonderfully versatile material that offers so many benefits. Natural and durable, linen is one of the strongest natural fibres and is considered to be 30% stronger than cotton. Made from flax, linen is typically used by hotels and spas, but it can be incorporated into your own home.

Luxurious and beautiful, linen towels don’t just look great, they are practical too. Due to being breathable, they are quick drying and highly absorbent. The fibres that linen is made from is hollow, and this means that it can absorb around 20% of its own weight in moisture.

Unlike most towels, linen bath towels actually get softer over time, whereas other bath towels tend to become scratchy and unusable. With use and washing, the fabric simply becomes more flexible and as a result, softer too. In addition, linen is easy to care for.

Linen towels are an investment, but because they last longer, the expense is worthwhile. This is why many hotels choose to only use linen towels and bedding, because it can be used frequently and will still look great in years to come.

Sustainability and Self-Care Go Hand in Hand

Self-Care is a form of mindful living, as is living sustainably. When we are mindful of our own needs, we also become more mindful of the needs of the world around us. If you are hoping to improve your self-care routine, choosing linen for your bath towels just makes sense. Not only will using linen bath towels enhance your overall experience, they will also encourage positive thoughts towards the choices you are making in order to benefit the planet.

Linen is one of the most eco-friendly fabrics available. Due to its long lifespan, it doesn’t need to be replaced frequently, helping to keep the drive behind mass production down. In addition, flax plants (from which linen is made) can grow in poor soil and require very little water, when compared to cotton or manmade materials. Finally, linen is biodegradable too.

A Beautiful Bathroom Creates a Beautiful Experience

When it comes to your self-care routine, whether this be your daily skincare routine, or that hour you find for yourself each week to have a long soak and relax, much of this time is spent in the bathroom. Using the hotel reference again, when we are surrounded by beautiful decor and luxurious materials, we feel uplifted, and so a tranquil and stylish bathroom will always elevate your self-care routine.

A fantastic way to add that luxury feel to your bathroom at home is by dressing it to include flax linen bath towels, a lovely woven bath mat, a collection of plants in artisan-made pots and a selection of organic candles and bath products. Small changes and carefully considered touches can completely transform your bathroom, and most importantly, how you feel during your time spent here.
