hand towelMarisaI love these towels from Ikea. Every time I go to IKEA I have to get a set of towels.5
Perfect hand towel in the bathChristineIt’s rare to find a hand towel with a loop at one end! We don’t have to hang a whole rack…just a hook will do the job if your towel has a loop!5
Very nice!Elsa D.It's the right thickness and absorbency, it has good loops for hanging on hooks, and I like the pattern. Great price!5
Only kind of towel you’ll ever need.Jkaylalet’s start with the size of this bath sheet…. it’s so huge i can wrap myself twice. it’s also super soft and absorbent.5
Love these hanging towelsbeckyI love these towels because they hang they dry out better. I love the two different sides to them! The lock the field bought eight of them5
UselessAndrew D.I don't get how this towel has so many positive reviews. If you want a thin, non-absorbent towel then get this otherwise find something else. I'm going to try the Fredriksjon which I'm hoping is thicker and more absorbent1
Not too thin!karin turnerMedium weight not too thin doesn't hold a lot of dirt. Good value for the price4

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.
