This bath towel by Zoe Home is definitely one you should be considering for your bathroom. In case you didn’t know, Zoe Home has been the largest hotel/AirBnB supplier in Malaysia since 2013 which is a testament to their high-quality products.

This product in particular is a 100% premium cotton bath towel which makes it extremely soft and lightweight. Its specific cotton is Terry cotton so it’s also really absorbent so it’s great for beach trips as well as your daily showers!

We think that one of the best things about this is its quick dry and durable material. Its sides are all double stitched which ensures that the towel stays intact longer than most towels.

These Zoe Home’s towels are machine washable as well. Just make sure you don’t bleach them in the wash.

2.   Akemi Dry Tech Cotton Bath Towel

Akemi Dry Tech Cotton Bath Towel

Price: RM 39.90

MaterialCotton
Size68 cm x 138 cm
Weight530g
Color/sGranite, Dream blue, Wood, Warm grey, Light latte, Clear white, Haze purple, Silver peony, Butter cream, Peach rose, Aqua blue

This Akemi Dry Tech Cotton Bath Towel would a great addition to your bathroom both for its functionality and its stylish design. It has straight indents across it that are a nice little addition to the usual plain towels.

If you live in a more humid area, this is a pretty good option for a towel for multiple reasons. One of those reasons is because it’s made of 100% cotton which makes it fast drying even in humid weather.

In addition to this, it also has a high absorbency rate which makes drying yourself off easy as counting to three. It also makes the washing process easier because you can be sure that it’s really being cleaned.

If you’re going to machine wash it, the ideal temperature is 40 degrees Celsius on a gentle cycle, and be sure to avoid bleach. However, if you really need to use bleach, get one that’s non-chlorine.

Pros

  • Quick-drying even in humid weather
  • High absorbency rate
  • Machine wash friendly

Cons

  • Not anti-bacterial
  • Requires a specific temperature to maintain optimal condition

3.   Oxwhite Bamboo Fibre Bath Towel

Oxwhite Bamboo Fibre Bath Towel

Price: RM 49

MaterialBamboo Viscose, Cotton
Size66.04 cm x 129.54 cm
Weight370g
Color/sGreen, Beige, Navy, Red, Grey

We know how it sounds—how could bamboo possibly be integrated into a towel? Most people don’t know about the existence of bamboo viscose fabric and the benefits it has so let’s get into it.

So first off, this Oxwhite towel is made of 80% cotton and 20% bamboo viscose. What we love about this is the fact that bamboo is known for outlasting cotton when it comes to durability and maintaining its shape.

It also makes it an eco-friendly choice because this means it can last up to 3 times longer than regular cotton towels when cared for properly. This towel is both fast-drying and dries you quickly because bamboo viscose has a higher absorbency rate than normal cotton.

For those with sensitive skin, we highly recommend this towel because bamboo is a hypoallergenic material. Bamboo fibers also contain an antimicrobial agent so it keeps you safe from bacteria, mold, and mildew even if you reuse the towel more than usual (but please don’t go over a week!).

When it comes to washing this towel, be sure to use cold water on a gentle cycle with mild detergent. Dry it away from direct sunlight to prevent discoloration.

Pros

  • Eco-friendly material
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Durable material
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Odor-resistant

Cons

  • Must be dried away from direct sunlight
  • Requires cold water for washing

Customer Reviews

4.   CANNON Bath Towel – Comfort Border

CANNON Bath Towel - Comfort Border

Price: RM 60.50

MaterialCombed cotton
SizeQueen:70cm x 140cm King: 76cm x 152cm
Color/sDark blue, Peach puree, Dusty blue, Grey

The American-based brand CANNON has a lot of different kinds of towels. However, we specifically chose the Comfort Border line because of its luxurious look that we think a lot of you would like hanging in your bathrooms.

The Comfort Border towels are made of 100% combed cotton. This is one of the best qualities of cotton because, after the harvest of the cotton, it’s combed until all the fibers are separated facing in the same direction and then they are spun.

One of the benefits of this is all the cotton with shorter fibers is gone so you’re left with the stronger and longer fibers so your towel is more likely to last longer.

This process also makes it much softer than regular cotton towels and is one of the reasons why this towel is significantly pricier than others.

It comes in four different colors: dark blue, peach puree, dusty blue, and grey. This specific link leads you to a package of 2 towels that come in queen and king size which are specified in the table above.

For machine wash, make sure to wash it in a warm gentle cycle and not with other towels. Avoid oxidizing and bleaching agents as this could ruin the fabric.

Pros

  • Made of combed cotton
  • Softer than most towels
  • Luxurious look
  • Comes in four different colors

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Must be washed in warm water

5.   HOOGA Truman Bath Towel

HOOGA Truman Bath Towel

Price: RM 55.90

MaterialCotton
Size70 cm x 140 cm
Color/sAngora, Rumba Red

Finally, we have Hooga’s Truman Bath Towel. It’s a 100% cotton-made towel that will definitely make your daily showers much better.

This Scandanavian-styled towel is a good pop of color for any bathroom with its Rumba Red variation, but it also gives you a more toned-down version with its Angora variation. Both are good choices if you ask us.

This towel is pretty thin so it’s perfect for out-of-town trips because they take up much less space than those thick (yet more absorbent) options of bath towels.

It’s machine-washable and it doesn’t come with any special washing instructions. With this in mind, we recommend washing it on a gentle cycle and tumble drying it warm to keep it fluffy.

If you’re interested in looking at more bath towels from Hooga, the order link we have above will show a couple of them as well! They have a lot of interesting options to choose from.

Pros

  • Scandinavian-style
  • Machine-washable
  • Comes in 2 colors

Cons

  • A bit thin; not so absorbent
  • Expensive

Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Bath Towel in Malaysia

1. Material

The most common material used for bath towels is cotton because of its absorption rate which we’ll go into more later. There are different kinds of cotton out there like combed cotton, Turkish cotton, and Egyptian cotton.

There are also those that are made of cotton blends like those with bamboo are great for those with sensitive skin.

2. Absorption rate

If you’re looking for a towel with the highest absorption rate then a good choice would be one made of Egyptian cotton. There are also other materials with high absorption rates like bamboo viscose.

Note that having a high absorption rate usually means your towel dries a bit slower than normal, though.

3. Drying rate

The material of the towel you buy is one of the biggest factors in how quickly it dries. The other factors being the weather in your current location and the place you keep your towel.

Getting a towel with a quick-drying rate is a better choice especially if you tend to shower often or if you’re bringing your towel out of town with you.

4. Size

Of course, it’s pretty important to consider the size of your bath towel since you’ll be wrapping it around your body. It’s best to get one that covers you properly so be sure to check the dimensions of each towel you get before clicking add to cart.
