The Egyptian Cotton is further processed and spun into usable yarn in Portugal by the Marinho family, who own and operate a Portuguese textile company in Santo Tirso. The Marinhos use modern solutions to uphold the values of environmental consciousness in the fabric spinning industry.
The thread is then dyed at a textile processing facility in Portugal. This facility is dedicated to preserving the environment by minimizing atmospheric emissions and wastewater discharges.
Cutting and Sewing
The fabric is then cut and sewn into towels in Portugal - the home of a storied textile industry. All towels are audited regularly to ensure that every quality and safety standard is met, including OEKO-TEX.
