Hooded towels are a very popular and useful towel, for people to wear after and before swimming, diving, and bathing.
Hooded towels have many styles and shapes. In the following chapter, I will explain one by one.
With regard to the shape of the towel, there are three types, Square, rectangular, and poncho.
Square towel generally for babies, the standard sizes are as follows. 75cmx75cm, 80cmx80cm, 85cmx85cm, 90cm x90cm, and 100cm x 100cm. Weight usually range from 320~400gsm.
Since for babies, the square towels are generally light color and made of terry cloth, the material is usually cotton or bamboo fiber.
Hooded towels of rectangular are usually for children and adults. This type hooded towels are very similar to bath towels, just added a hood on the bath towel. These towels can be terry cloth, terry velour, sometimes velour with print.
Now, here is the poncho towels. It can be made of terry cloth, terry velour, and velour with print. Poncho towels is a good choice for kids and adults after bath, swimming, and on beach.
Now we talking about the edge of towels. There are two kinds edge, hem, and binding. Square towels always use binding, the otthers can use both binding and hem. If we use terry cloth fabric to make hooded towels, the edge is binding, otherwise, we use finished towel to make the hooded towel, the edge will be hem. Binding looks better than hem, because binding will be contrast color, but it’s cost is a little higher.
Finally, whatever the towels’ type is, it has the pros and cons, we can custom-made it as to your taste.
