Terry cloth: between comfort and softness

Publié le
Welcome to our complete guide to terry cloth, a versatile and eco-friendly material that has become essential in the world of fashion and home comfort. Whether you're looking for comfortable clothes for lounging around the house or cozy shoes for your city escapes, terry cloth provides unparalleled comfort while being eco-friendly. A flagship piece of our loungewear collection , we explain to you what pushed us to make this choice. In this article, we'll explore this particular fabric in depth, from how it's made to how it's taken care of, so you can take full advantage of its many benefits.

What is terry cloth?

Terry cloth is a soft, absorbent textile often used in the manufacture of loungewear, bath towels, bathrobes and even shoes. It's made from organic or recycled cotton fibers, making it an eco-friendly choice. Unlike other fabrics, terry is characterized by its loops or strands which give it its characteristic texture and ability to absorb moisture.



What is eco-friendly terry cloth?

Terry cloth is a soft, absorbent textile, often made from organic or recycled cotton fibers. Unlike jersey which will have a smooth feel, terry cloth is distinguished by its small, very fine and light loops. These are visible and soft to the touch, and they are particularly renowned for their absorbency. We often find them used for bath or beach linen, or even to create a bathrobe. At Angarde, we use certified organic cotton for our terrycloth items, so that your comfort does not come at the cost of preserving the environment. We chose a particularly soft and thick terry, in a range close to that of beach linen, which is very comfortable and soft. We have created a range of terry cloth clothing for women and men to suit all tastes, to wear both at the beach and at home, in soft shades like ecru or bright ones like pink and green; the hardest part is making your choice!


The benefits of ultra-absorbent terry cloth

Softness: Terry cloth is incredibly soft and plush.

Eco-friendly: Using organic cotton fibers, eco-friendly terry cloth minimizes its impact on the environment and promotes sustainable practices. You can also use a sponge made from bamboo because it consumes little water.

Moisture Absorption: The loops of terry cloth allow it to quickly absorb moisture, making it ideal for activewear, beach towels and other items where moisture management is important. This is why we decided to create a beach shorts and shirt set for men and women.

At Angarde, we choose strong fibers that do not deteriorate at any stage of manufacturing or maintenance. However, we advise you to be careful with rough surfaces, which tend to snag the loops and damage the fabric.

How to maintain terry cloth?

Taking care of your terrycloth linen is essential to prolong its lifespan and maintain its softness and new appearance. Here are some practical tips for caring for this fabric:

1. Machine wash your terrycloth items with mild detergent and lukewarm water. Avoid using fabric softener, as this can reduce the fabric's moisture absorption.

2. Choose air drying rather than machine drying to avoid putting too much stress on the fibers of the fabric.

3. Avoid using bleaches or harsh chemicals that may damage the fibers of the fabric and alter its softness. This can harm pigments, especially bright colors like pink or green like on our women's terrycloth skirt .

4. Be sure to store your terrycloth items in a dry, ventilated area to prevent mold or bad odors from forming.

By following these simple tips, you can extend the life of your terry clothes and items while maintaining their quality and texture.

Conclusion

Eco-friendly terrycloth is a fantastic choice for those looking for comfort, durability and eco-friendliness. To put on in your living room or when leaving the beach, the terrycloth set is ideal in summer. By understanding how this fabric is made, its benefits and how to care for it, you can take full advantage of its many qualities.
