Matouk Milagro Towel: Soft, Airy and Absorbent Luxury Cotton Bath Towels, Mats and Rugs
Matouk Milagro luxury bath towels are soft, absorbent, and quick to dry. Spanish for “miracle,” Milagro is the best-selling towel style from Matouk. This article takes a detailed look at the Milagro cotton towel collection and illuminates why Milagro is so very special.
Milagro: The Spanish Word for “Miracle”
At Fine Linen and Bath, we advise our clients that no single towel style is likely to please everyone. And that makes sense, because picking the right towel comes down to weighing the qualities that matter most to the individual. Plush, absorbent towels, for example, are typically heavy and take longer to dry; lighter weight towels, as a rule, dry quickly but may not offer the softest feel or strongest absorbency.
But once in a great while, a towel comes along with a rare and special blend of qualities – and a memorable name – that set it apart. Matouk Milagro is just that small miracle of a towel.
Our favorite qualities of the Matouk Milagro bath towel:
- Soft and fluffy
- Luxuriously lighter in weight
- Absorbent towel
- Quick drying
Of course, it’s no surprise that Milagro is Matouk’s best-selling towel and a perennial favorite among our discerning clientele. Let’s take a closer look at these stunning, versatile towels and explore why they are so very special. We think you just might discover why Milagro could be the best bath towel for you.
More About Matouk Milagro Bath Towels

Coordinating deep-pileMilagro bath rugs with non-stick backing are also available in two sizes and a smaller range of colors. Milagro towels – like all Matouk fabrics – are STANDARD 100 OEKO-TEX® as safe from harmful chemicals.
Zero-Twist Cotton: The Secret to Lightweight Absorbency
What’s behind Milagro’s “miraculous” capacity to be an incredibly lightweight towel that is also super absorbent? The answer is zero-twist cotton. Most terry towels are constructed with a cotton loop that is twisted in the spinning process to add strength and uniformity. A high twist yarn is very durable and substantial.
The cotton in Milagro towels is “zero twist.” It is made with long-staple Egyptian cotton fibers, which are of the finest quality and inherently strong and durable. This cotton does not require twisting for strength. Instead of being twisted, the cotton fibers are held together with a special wrapping process that allows them to capture more air among them. This creates an Egyptian cotton towel that is exceptionally soft, plush, and lightweight while being quite absorbent and quick to dry.
Our friends at Matouk use the following analogy to describe zero-twist cotton: Think of a mop. If you twisted the mop fibers together, they would be less absorbent. Similarly, the cotton fibers in Milagro towels offer the maximum absorbency and softness at a lighter weight because they are not twisted together. These qualities are hard to find in a single towel.
A Proud Legacy of Portuguese Textiles
Matouk Milagro towels are made in Portugal, a picturesque country that is home to the finest towel manufacturers on Earth. Situated next to Spain on the Iberian Peninsula, Portugal's textile tradition reaches back to the late 18th century, when Lisbon became a global capital of textile trade and manufacturing. That legacy continues today, with most of Portugal's textile mills and sewing factories now concentrated in the northern parts of the country. Portugal's textile workers are skilled fabric artisans, many of whom carry on a generations-long family legacy of craftsmanship. Milagro towels are a wonderful example of this proud tradition.
