Frequently Asked Questions
What are Torres Novas towels made of?
Torres Novas products are 100% made of high quality cotton, with long fibers, combining softness and comfort with resistance and durability. Only 100% natural, biodegradable and environmentally friendly fibers are used, never using artificial and polluting fibers like polyester.
Where are Torres Novas products made?
All Torres Novas products, whether they are terry bath towels or other terry cloth items, are manufactured in Portugal, by partners with decades of partnership with Torres Novas, and who combine tradition with the most modern confection techniques.
What certificates do Torres Novas products have?
Torres Novas products are manufactured under OEKO-TEX® certification. This certification guarantees that hazardous chemicals are not used at any stage of the textile production process. Torres Novas products are therefore extensively tested throughout the production chain to ensure that cotton is not treated with harmful chemicals such as pesticides or lead.
My towels are shedding. Is there a problem?
No. It is perfectly normal for terry cloth towels and other good quality terry cloth products to shed during their first few uses. This is due to the use of low-twist yarns, which provide great softness. Darker coloured towels (petroleum blue, cobalt blue, cardinal red, peony pink, brownie, dark olive, blue flag, orange red, red, olive drab, black, blue France, dove, tangerine, and saffron yellow) shed a little more in the first few washes and take longer to stabilize. Therefore, we recommend machine washing them at least three times in cold water before the first use to stabilize shedding.
Do Torres Novas towels shrink?
It is normal for there to be a slight shrinkage with the first few washes. This is because we only use 100% natural fibers and the production process does not include chemical agents such as formaldehyde, used to pre-shrink articles industrially, thus minimizing any environmental impact and guaranteeing the quality of the towels. Due to its high quality construction, if following the recommended care instructions, shrinkage is limited to 10%.
Are Torres Novas products hypoallergenic?
Yes, since only cotton is used in their manufacture, Torres Novas products do not pose any risk for people with atopic skin. Products are not a risk for people with asthma either, as shedding will be minimal after the first few washes.

Caring for your Torres Novas
How often should I wash Torres Novas towels?
We recommend washing weekly or after 5-7 uses.
What care should I take when washing / drying?
We recommend machine washing with cold water, although it is safe to use water up to 40 ºC. Only wash with same-color terry cloth towels and without fabric softener. Using fabric softener makes towels less absorbent, so this should be avoided as much as possible. If you have accidentally used fabric softener, don't worry. You can still use the towels anyway, and their full absorption capacities will be regained during their next wash cycle.
For maximum softness, Torres Novas towels can be dried in the dryer at low to moderate temperature. If using a traditional clothesline, avoid direct exposure to the sun and remove towels before fully dry to prevent them from getting too hard. If they become hard, do not worry, as they will recover their softness after a few uses.
How often should I replace Torres Novas bath towels?
Torres Novas towels are built to last several years with adequate use and following of care instructions. They should only need replacement once you feel they have lost their natural softness and absorption.
How should I hang Torres Novas towels?
We advise hanging them on a towel rack or hanger immediately after use. This is important to avoid the development of moisture and bad smells.
