Looking to swap out your regular bath towels for something more luxurious? From zero twist to sport towels, there are a range of types, materials, sizes and weights to choose from.
What is GSM?
GSM or grams per square metre is the measurement used to describe a towel’s thickness. Towels with a higher GSM are generally thicker and more absorbent than those with lower GSM weights. So, if you prefer a heavier, plusher towel, opt for anything above 450gsm.
Bath towels come in a variety of sizes, ranging from face cloths of 30 x 30 cm to bath sheets measuring 150 x 100 cm. There are some additional size choices available, including beach towels gym towels, and baby towels.
