Discover the Secret to Quick-Drying Luxury with Etoile Bath Towel

Yves Delorme Etoile bath towels are a substantial 700 GSM, with a plush and indulgent feel that wraps you in comfort. These luxurious towels are crafted from a blend of 83% long-staple organic cotton and 17% modal. They offer extra softness, durability, and absorbency while -- thanks to the modal -- drying quickly even in humid conditions. The Etoile bath towel collection is a testament to Yves Delorme's commitment to quality and attention to detail, making these towels a must-have for those seeking the ultimate in luxury and performance.

Modal: The Game-Changing Ingredient in Yves Delorme Etoile Towels

The Etoile collection dries quicker than pure cotton towels of similar weights thanks to its blend of cotton and modal. Modal is a semi-synthetic fiber derived from the cellulose of beechwood trees that are grown in sustainably managed forests. Modal fibers are finer and more porous than cotton, which enables them to absorb moisture more efficiently and release it quickly during the drying process. The smooth surface of modal fibers also helps prevent the buildup of excess moisture, ensuring that your towels remain fresh and dry faster than their cotton counterparts. Modal is also highly breathable and resistant to shrinkage, and maintains its shape and softness wash after wash. The blend of eco-friendly modal with high-quality organic cotton makes Etoile towels the perfect choice for anyone who values both luxury and practicality in luxury bath textiles.

"The modal in an Etoile towel means it dries quickly, despite sumptuous weight and feel,” said Fine Linen and Bath Brand Manager Erika Smith. “This minimizes any lingering dampness and the build-up of musty odors, particularly in warm, humid climates.”

Elevate Your Bathroom with the Signature Details of Etoile Bath Towels

Yves Delorme Etoile bath towels feature a detailed dobby with a star pattern -- thus, the name “Etoile” -- that adds a touch of elegance to your bathroom décor. You’ll also find the signature Yves Delorme swan embroidered emblem on the lower right corner of the towel as a symbol of the brand's commitment to quality and craftsmanship.

Yves Delorme Etoile bath towels offer a versatile range of color choices to suit any bathroom aesthetic. From classic white to bold and vibrant hues, there is a color to complement every style. The Etoile bath collection includes a wash cloth and bath mitt; guest towel and hand towel; and bath towel and bath sheet to ensure you have the perfect size towel for every need. You can also purchase an Etoile bath mat in velour with a diamond inset pattern.

Caring for Your Yves Delorme Etoile Towels: Tips for Lasting Luxury

To ensure that your Yves Delorme Etoile towels maintain their luxurious feel and performance, follow these simple care instructions.

  1. Sort towels by weight and color. Wash them in a dedicated load (never wash towels with other clothing items, as buttons, snaps, and other detailing can cause towels to snag).
  2. Use a gentle, pH-neutral detergent made for cleaning luxury fabric. We recommend Heritage Park All-Purpose Laundry Detergent, which is a plant-based formula powered by a blend of natural cleaning enzymes.
  3. Use a normal wash cycle and warm water. Don’t overstuff the machine.
  4. Avoid bleach, which causes colors to fade and whites to yellow, and fabric softeners, which leave a waxy build-up on towels and inside machines.
  5. Tumble dry your towels on low or moderate heat. Never use dryer sheets. You can use wool dryer balls to naturally soften towels and reduce drying time.

Store your towels in a clean, dry space, preferably away from direct sunlight. If you experience hard water build-up on your towels, you can refresh and revive your towels in 2 simple steps:

  1. Wash your towels in warm to hot water with one cup of white distilled vinegar (no detergent) to strip away built-up residue and restore absorbency.
  2. Run the load a second time using only a half-cup of baking soda (no detergent) to freshen and remove lingering smells. Dry as usual.
