There’s a certain sophistication to these 100 percent certified organic cotton towels from the manufacturer “glo.” I think it’s a combination of the monochromatic stripe pattern and the fact that it has no dobby border, (the flat, inset weave you often find around the border of a towel or wash cloth.) It makes for a cleaner, more contemporary overall appearance this way.
Fairtrade certified, with 550 grams per square meter, the towels are of a medium weight – which will make them relatively easy to wash and dry. Personally, I’m partial to the white and natural, but they’re also available in mushroom, faded denim, plum and jade.
The items in the collection range in price from $5 for the 12 X 12-inch wash cloth, to $58 for the 35 X 75-inch bath sheet. The Clean Bedroom, 1869 Post Road East, Westport, (203) 292-9275; (866) 380-5892. www.thecleanbedroom.com
