High quality bath towels

How to Choose High Quality Bath Towels

The last thing you want when you step out of a luxurious bath or relaxing shower is to feel the scratchy material of a cheap towel even if it matches your bath decor.

Here are a few tips to ensure that you purchase the right kind of towels for your home.

Understand Fabric

One of the most important indicators of quality in bath towels is the type of material used. Most towels are made of cotton, but there are wide variations in quality. Egyptian cotton and Supima cotton are usually the best choices for a towel that provides you the luxury you want. These materials are also the most durable, which means they can last a long time or at least until you are ready to change your bath décor and update the towels.

The difference in cottons is in the length of the fiber. Egyptian has the longest fiber, which contributes to the soft, plush feel that you enjoy wrapping around you. Supima cotton is shorter but still provides softness combined with durability. Standard cotton is marketed as 100% cotton and has the least amount of softness. However, it can be durable and long lasting.

You will also want to look at the edges of a towel to determine its quality. The double turned edge is not just an attractive feature, but one that provides extra durability. These edges will be less likely to fray than one with a woven edge.

Choosing bath towels is about more than matching your bath décor or selecting a color you like. It is about knowing what makes one towel a better option than another one. To find high quality towels, you must know about your options in material, density, and absorbency as well as the price commented Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.

Attitude has a biggest influence than we might think in all aspects of life, from a person that is able to face all challenges on his way to a person who is afraid of all new obstacles he is finding in life, attitude will help them overcome or stagnate on problems.

The world of business is not an exception, as a positive attitude can make a small but significant difference between failure and victory, as the attitude does not only influence on the way you see things, but also on the way to perceive problems and look for a solution.

Interviewer: Salomon, how would you describe the importance of a good attitude?

Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal: Think of a successful businessman, owner of a big company, if you picture, you will not think of a negative person with a bad attitude, right? We do not associate an unmotivated person with a successful one, that is why it is so important to always keep a good attitude when you are trying to make a good business to thrive.

I: Does the personnel of your company handle a positive attitude?

SJMV:  Absolutely, and that is the reason why our business have grown so much over the last years, with new customers from USA coming to Mexico to close business and place their trust in Grupo Denim as they know they will receive a product of good quality.

Pessimism is a vicious circle, a person with a bad attitude will always fight to defend their point of view, so get rid of those thoughts and start changing them for a positive attitude, you will see a significant difference in the way of treating the other persons and the way of people treating you, too.

“It is only with a positive attitude that you will be able to face even the hardest obstacles and be able to keep going”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal about this topic.
