Towels have two basic jobs—dry my body, and dry itself. So why is it that most towels represent a compromise between the two?
Onsen married functionality with minimalism to craft a lightweight bath towel that dries like its job depended on it. The key to this obsessively designed towel isn’t what they added, but rather what they eliminated. Most towels go through a chemical bathing process so that they feel soft and fluffy, at least at first. Not Onsen. Instead of short-lived softness that washes away, Onsen relies on premium materials and traditional techniques to deliver a thirsty towel that only gets softer over time.

There is no other bag brand I am as loyal to as I am to the Swiss brand FREITAG. Over the last 19 years I have accumulated quite the collection and I can attest they are indestructible and seemingly timeless. This small clutch bag, the F271 Masikura, would make a nice new addition. Wishlisted. Also, how creative and fun is this product video?
“The opposite of spare time is, I guess, occupied time. In my case I still don’t know what spare time is because all my time is occupied. It always has been and it is now. It’s occupied by living.”
