What is Ecoknit®
EcoKnit® towels are guaranteed to SAVE YOU MONEY! We believe EcoKnit® to be the most technically advanced, energy efficient terry towel in the world today!
Advantages of EcoKnit® Towels
Reducing your energy consumption and costs up to 40%! PROVEN Your existing 100% cotton towels are now COSTING YOU 40% MORE to process than what you can save with the EcoKnit® towel. This could mean up to 30 minutes per load therefore saving on labour costs and time constraints within the laundry.
Polyester in the base construction absorbs less water. Thus when compared to 100% cotton towels, EcoKnit towels require 15% less water in the wash cycle. This has a add on effect of using less energy needed to heat the water, and a correspondingly lesser amount of chemicals for the wash.
Longer-lasting towels mean you’ll save money on replacing stock and extend amortisation periods. Purchase EcoKnit once compared to twice on your existing 100% cotton towels and the savings for EcoKnit are clear to see.
The loops cannot come loose and the towel cannot fall to pieces like a 100% cotton towel. No more tearing of the hems and fraying of the selvedges in the laundering process. No more wastage and throwing away damaged stock, saving around 20% on an annual basis.
With EcoKnit® towels you will not have these problems. The loops will not pull, in fact you can see the proof with our wire brush test. You are able to brush the towel with an industrial wire brush and no snags or loops will come lose.
EcoKnit® Towels are so strong that the hems, and the selvedges will not fray - no matter how many times the towel is washed!
With the loops unable to come loose and the towel unable to fall to pieces like a traditional towel through friction in the laundering process. EcoKnit now reduces wastage in stock, making your purchase go further and saving you money!
EcoKnit® towels are so strong and durable, you can brush them with a wire brush!

EcoKnit® towels resist differential shrinkage, which is what causes traditional woven towels to become misshapen and hang awkwardly.
Better presentation wherever it is, means better presentation of your brand.
Traditional towels suffer from excessive use of bleach which weakens the base construction, tears and holes form in the body of the towels leading to wastage and increased costs.
EcoKnit® Towels with their polyester base are unaffected by bleach and therefore reduce the risk of weakening the fabric and thus incurring tears and holes in the body of the towels, thereby making your product last longer and significantly reducing your replacement costs.
Traditional towels, have a 50/50 split of weight in the pile to base construction. 50% of their weight is in the pile and the other 50% remains in the base in order to retain pile retention (prevent the loops been pulled out).
EcoKnit® Towels have 80% of the overall weight of the towel in the pile thereby giving guests a longer, softer pile which provides a more luxurious feel. More cotton in the pile also gives better absorption! Independent tests show EcoKnit has 30% better absorption and in abrasive tests EcoKnit pile lasted 30,000 cycles compared to 15,000 in a standard 100% cotton product of the same weight.
On average our pile height is 6mm across our qualities.
Because EcoKnit® Towels have 80% of the weight in the pile to give it a full luxurious feel and finish. We can therefore reduce the weight of the towel to make further cost savings while still maintaining existing quality. EcoKnit® can be made up to 10% lighter and yet still look and feel like your existing quality. This enables you to reduce the cost of the product, thereby creating further budget savings.
This allows water to be expelled from the towel more effectively and efficiently. Compared to a standard 100% cotton towel, EcoKnit Towels have a 20% lower residual moisture content after extraction.Less water to be evaporated means quicker drying times and less energy required.
A further advantage means no more burst holes in the fabric if you have a press machine. You can increase the pressure as a result, thus speeding up the process and increasing your capacity through the laundry.
Wash our white EcoKnit® Towels to 95°C and our EcoKnit® coloured Towels to 70°C
The energy and water savings gained from processing EcoKnit® Towels will compensate for your purchase cost. This effectively makes your EcoKnit® towels free! No other terry towel can offer the same return on investment.
If you also take into consideration what EcoKnit® saves in wastage terms(no snags, no frayed edges, holes forming from a weak base construction) these alone can account for as much as 20% of your stock.
With reduced drying times and less energy consumed with each cycle, you can now reduce your carbon footprint and become ever efficient and more Eco friendly than before. EcoKnit® is the most energy efficient cotton terry towel in the world today.
EcoKnit® is considered a low carbon product, as such it will reduce your emissions and help meet Climate Change Agreement targets.
Usually washers work faster than dryers, upsetting the balance within a laundry and increasing the cost of utilising an extra dryer.
With 40% quicker drying times, EcoKnit® will now help balance your production, alleviating the problem of having wet towels lying around or spending on further drying machines.
This extends to space saving issues on premises, no space allowance for extra dryers, with EcoKnit towels you can keep to equal number of washer / dryers.
Trials show EcoKnit towels dry up to 30 minutes faster per load. On a 10 hour laundry shift that is a 5 hour saving.
EcoKnit® above all passes savings to its uses. An advantage of these savings means you will now be taking steps to help our environment.
Using less resources like water and energy means you will be reducing your dependence on what’s pure and natural. Reducing ones energy consumption means reducing your Carbon dioxide levels. Making our products last longer mean you don’t have to throw them away as often, great news for the environment!
