Experts in microfiber for decades, we knew right away that one of our star products had to be the towels. We found the best recipe of microfiber to create super absorbent and long-lasting sustainable towels. Our own Arpe towels came to life under the name of TUVAs at the beginning, designed, created and manufactured in-house.
Over the years, we never stopped making towels, but we did lose focus on our TUVAs. Until now. We couldn’t give up on our identity and values, and our sustainable microfiber towels were the true reflection of that. So we got together as a team and decided to reinvent our masterpieces and present, to the world, new Arpe towels.
And here they are. Our sustainable microfiber towels have no reason to envy the cotton ones. They are manufactured with the softest microfiber made from post-consumer rPET bottles, which makes them more resistant, absorbent, quick-drying and hygienic than a traditional towel. And they take care of the planet like no other. Yes, that’s right! Microfiber can be super soft, super absorbent and super sustainable! In fact, we measured their carbon footprint and compared it to a cotton towel and the results were astonishing.
During their full circle of life, our sustainable microfiber towels…
- Reduce their CO2 emissions by 76%.
- Save 58% in energy use.
- Save 55% in water use.
- Use 40% less soap.
- Take up 70% less volume.
And what about their manufacturing? They are…
- Made with microfiber from recycled plastic bottles.
- Digitally printed with OEKO-TEX certified inks.
- Monomaterial, recycled and recyclable all together once they can no longer be used.
- Fully produced in-house, by our own team, in our factory in Arenys de Munt ran by 100% renewable energy.
So yes, we take pride in our processes. We don’t only sell products that “look good” (I mean, the designs are obviously to die for), but we promote a lifestyle and a way of seeing and treating the world. We design to make a change. We gift with meaning. And we want you to do it too. For home, for fitness, for sports, for traveling, for the beach… our towels are in different colors and sizes to fulfill any of your needs. You just have to choose your style.
