After years of work with our towel manufacturing partners we are finally able to bring to market our first KATAMA towel products.
All of our bath pieces incorporate a unique silver technology to eliminate the growth of bacteria and microbes with 99.99% confidence, and prevent associated odors and mildew. They will stay cleaner longer and while you may choose to wash as often, you certainly do not need to in order to maintain a clean environment.
Our products are designed in NYC and woven in the mountains of Portugal, by artisans known for their expertise in textiles. We source Long Staple Egyptian Cotton which is the most durable and luxurious cotton in the world. Our proprietary weaving techniques enable us to create pieces that feature maximum softness, absorbency, and durability.

What We Know
Towels that hang in the bathroom are dirty. Towels offer the perfect environment for bacteria to grow because they’re damp, warm and hang in dark bathrooms.
Towels are used by practically everyone, yet most people have no clue how to properly care for them. In addition to the natural bacteria from your skin, your towel exponentially accumulates bacteria from your local water supply, shower head, and other items that make-up your bathroom environment.
According to a study conducted by the Public Health and Safety Organization, 31 towels that were used from 1 to 14 times, all tested positive for harmful bacteria. The bacteria can cause acne, boils, or infections on facial skin, and can be even more harmful to people with weak immune systems, if digested, or if an open wound is contacted.
