What makes this brand truly unique is how each piece is artisan-made in small batches outside of the factory setting. These towels are handwoven on shuttle looms passed down from generation to generation; some are 100 years old.

While you’re at home, why not take the time to change up your hair routine for healthier benefits? Wet hair is vulnerable hair, and a traditional bath towel causes hair breakage and tugs on your scalp as you rough dry your hair. The VOLO Hero is here to change that.

The snag-free grippy strap ensures your towel will stay tucked into place – no more wobbling to the side or falling off completely. Simply wrap your hair up, tuck under the strap, leave up as long as you please and continue conquering the world. A time-saver, a hair health savior, and an essential addition to your hair-care routine. Not all heroes wear capes.
