favorite towelsAmyI just bought these to replace old ones that I had for years! They held up great but had started to turn a bit grey so it was time for new ones. Love the waffle on one side and terry on the other.5
New Go-To TowelsCourtneyI am a huge fan of IKEA in general, but have found the textiles to be hit-or-miss. I bought two hand towels and two bath sheets after reading the reviews and we are NOT disappointed!! First, all cotton. Huge plus as I cannot stand synthetics, especially in towels. Second, they’re absolutely perfect! The loop side is super absorbent, and the waffle side is ideal for wrapping my hair. Plus, so far they’ve washed beautifully and withstood an accidental bleaching. Will be replacing all our towels with these as it comes time.5

Best towel everDaniWe have been purchasing these towels for a couple of years now we love them we won’t use any other tow5
Great TowelDocLove it5
Waffle texture only on one sideChloeI bought these because everyone on Reddit raves about them and they’re a great price point. However, I thought they would be a deeper honeycomb weave for the whole towel, but it’s just waffle textured on one side and terry cloth on the other. Also, not as soft as I thought they would be but we’ll see how they hold up! 3
Wooo a towelMichaelEverything i ever wanted and more super absorbent and the dark gray charcoal / non intimidating smoked gunmetal color is very esthetically pleasing5
Lasted About 1 MonthAnnaGave my old towels away & decided to splurge on all new bath sheets when we bought our new house. I have never been so disappointed in a product. These started fraying after about 1 month of barely being gently used. We're a middle-aged couple who live alone & are super easy with our towels. We don't have an agitator on our washer & there is no feasible reason these towels are in such bad shape. They also come straight out of the dryer so wrinkled that it's embarrassing to have guests use them. No matter what dryer setting, I've tried them all, then stand in wait to fold them straight out of the dryer & it doesn't matter. I absolutely refuse to dedicate anymore time to these towels by ironing them; shouldn't have to.1
Best Towels Ever!!!TroyAmazing quality and a price you cannot beat5
Love these towelsJudyThey dry very well without all the weight of a thicker towel! They’re like nice spa towels.5

Our take on cotton

We use cotton in many of our products, from sofas and cushions to bed linen and mattresses. It is a soft, durable, and renewable fiber that breathes and is good at absorbing moisture. All these great qualities make cotton one of our most important materials, but it isn’t without its challenges, much having to do with conventional farming methods that negatively impact the environment and poor working conditions for farmers. With our size and production volumes, we want to drive change in the cotton industry.

Working together to drive change

Each year, IKEA uses around 0.5 percent of all cotton grown around the world. This may not seem like a lot, but the number is big enough to drive change in the industry. For many years, we have been working with partners and stakeholders globally to transform conventional large-scale cotton farming and set social and environmental standards for cotton production. As an example, we helped set up the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) who runs the world’s largest cotton sustainability programme. BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future. Today, more than 110,000 farmers have adopted more sustainable farming practices within IKEA projects.

Ensuring compliance throughout the value chain

All IKEA products are produced in accordance with the IKEA IWAY Standard, our Supplier Code of Conduct. It sets out the minimum environmental and social standards expected from our suppliers, including compliance with local laws. We do not accept any form of forced labor, child labor or treatments in breach of our supply chain requirements. Our cotton teams across the globe ensure that all cotton used in IKEA products meets the demands of compliance in our supply chain. By having teams on the ground in areas where it has previously been challenging to work responsibly, we can challenge the traditional ways of working and improve the industry. If we discover that we are acting in places where we cannot ensure our requirements are being met, we follow-up on the ground and drive change.


What is cotton?

Cotton is one of the world's most appreciated and used natural fibers. Textiles in cotton are soft, hardwearing and can be washed at high temperatures. They are also good at breathing and absorbing moisture – making them pleasant to wear close to the body. Today at IKEA we use more and more recycled cotton and strive to make sure that all the new cotton we use has been grown and produced with less and less amounts of pesticides, fertilizers and water.
