At the heart of Hartwell lies a vision that transcends mere manufacturing; it's a commitment to creating a community connected by the humble towel. Established on its 90th anniversary, Hartwell's vision goes "Beyond daily work," seeking to forge meaningful connections through the everyday item of the towel. Enter the Imabari Towel.

Hartwell envisions a world where towels become more than just functional objects. Through "Towel Communication," the company aims to foster a community where towels serve as conduits for deeper connections, weaving threads of camaraderie and comfort.

Imabari towel-making begins with the careful selection and preparation of yarn. Skilled craftsmen, known as stretchers, handle delicate threads, winding them with precision to create the warp. This meticulous process ensures that each towel is imbued with the essence of craftsmanship.

Every step of the manufacturing process is conducted with unwavering attention to detail. From cutting to sewing to final inspection, Hartwell artisans ensure that each Imabari towel meets the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship.
