Wrapping yourself up in one of these luxuriously soft, organic towels is the perfect way to add a bit of sustainable self-care into your everyday life. These brands have 100% natural, earth-friendly towels that you dry off with in good conscience knowing the fabric is safe for your skin and good for our planet, too.
The towels listed in this guide are made from all eco-friendly and organic materials — mostly from organic cotton as well as some linen and hemp. Check out this post to learn more about organic cotton (including why it’s so important to prioritize organic over conventional cotton!) and this post for more on linen.
When looking for organic cotton towels, prioritize brands that have cotton certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) standard. This is the highest and most reputable certification for organic textiles. In addition to ensuring the fibers used were grown organically, GMO-free without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, the GOTS seal ensures that fabric and products were produced in a socially and environmentally responsible way, too.
Note that this guide features partners and affiliates. As always, all brands met high standards for sustainability and are brands I truly love.
1. Delilah Home
Sustainable bedding and towel brand Delilah Home offers luxurious 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton towels made in Europe. Delilah Home’s towels were one of the first Vegan.org certified towels in the US market as well.
Long-staple organic Turkish cotton is loomed into extra long-loops to create a super soft and absorbent surface and thick, plush (yet lightweight) texture for Delilah Home’s towels. In other words, these are the kind of towels that you’ll look forward to wrapping yourself up in after a long day!
