♥ / Onsen

A big thank you to Onsen for sponsoring my blog and RSS feed this week.

Need a last minute gift idea? Check out the Onsen towel set.

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.

(Psst… I have replaced all towels with Onsen towels in my house! LOVE them!)
