About

We're excited to present our latest towel with zero-twist technology. Simply put, it's the finest towel we've had the pleasure of using to date.

Our Japanese manufacturer has decades of experience. Working together we have selected the finest cotton for purpose and zero twist softness.

Inspiring peace and tranquility to create the perfect balance of form and function - without compromise. Get ready to upgrade your bathroom to a spa-like oasis. Every. Single. Day.

 
 That's where Sento 2 comes in, introducing the towels fit for an emperor or empress.
 We have chosen only the finest natural materials and implemented specialized manufacturing techniques developed in Japan. Relentlessly pursuing the finest methods to create a product of the utmost quality.   
 

 
 The Japanese zero-twist design is luxuriously soft, super absorbent, quick drying and so effortlessly fluffy and light it feels like a cloud.
 We know you will love it too!
 

 
 The Japanese have been perfecting the art of towel making for hundreds of years. Used by the upper class of society in the 17th Century including the Samurai. 
 They still carry on this tradition focusing on superior craftsmanship and simplicity.
 

 
 Like all Sento products, our new towels are packed full of features and meticulously engineered. They are designed from the ground up to be both the best bath towels and the best everyday towels on the planet.
 



 
 Regular terry loop towels typically twist their cotton strands repeatedly, forming thick rope-like loops. These thick strands are much easier (and lower cost) to work with. 
 

 
 Sento's premium zero twist design allows the natural cotton fibers to remain loose and fluffy. The intricate and time consuming process of working with zero twist fibers is very rewarding, as it yields towels unbelievably gentle and soft. The effortless elegance is quickly apparent to anyone who experiences the towel.
 

 
 Inspired by our passion for the finer things in life, Japanese craftsmanship and attention to detail.

 Many towels are made of cotton, but the look and feel of towels largely depends on what type of cotton is used. Towels designed and priced for everyday use are made of sub-standard methods.
 

 
 Sento is made with true Zero Twist yarns designed to leave the cotton fibers free. The result is a fabric with an extra fluffy texture that maintains an airy softness, evoking the feel of a cloud.
 

 
 Sento fabric is ultra-soft, super-fluffy and designed for high-end spas and hotels with it's luxurious look and feel.  
 

 
 The zero twist process allows each cotton fiber to retain its natural texture – and its luxurious softness – allowing the fabric to remain ‘open’ to the air.
 

 
 The openness greatly increases absorbency allowing air to permeate the fabric, moisture simply disappears and the towel dries quickly after each use.
 While the towel is remarkably voluminous, full of high quality cotton, it remains incredibly light for its size. 
 

 
 Once we discovered its effect on our prototype towels we knew our next project had to be Zero Twist.
 

 
 Sento 2 achieves unprecedented softness. It really needs to be experienced to be believed.
 

 
 Every single Sento towel is made with painstaking dedication to achieve industry leading perfection.
 

 
 Harsh water containing undesirably minerals and heavy metals can damage towels during production. Sento uses only the softest water sourced from the mountains is used to create our towels.

 Sento was born and raised on Kickstarter. In 2016 we launched the Sento Towel. Thanks to our incredible backers and supporters, over 20,000 people worldwide now enjoy our products every day.  
 

 
 Where We Are
 Our second towel project has been heavily tested and refined with over a year of development. We have developed strong and stable partnerships with local craftspeople and supply chains. We are ready to go!
 We have a design that has been heavily tested and refined at every step along the way. We have partnered with craftspeople, factories and raw material suppliers in Japan and built a strong supply chain network. We are ready to go!

 We are a group of designers and entrepreneurs with a connection to Japan. We love making quality products and hope to bring minimalism and craftsmanship to all our designs.


 Join us on our journey to bring great products to the world.


 

 
  This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 600+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $300MM raised between them.

 
 Machine wash with cold water and mild detergent. No bleach or fabric softeners. Hang or tumble dry low. Strong threads means this won't wear down easily or come apart.     
 To dry, hang in a dry place. Their absorbency makes Japanese towels especially quick to dry. You can also tumble dry them on gentle or low cycle. 
  The great thing is the more you use them, the softer, fluffier, and gentler they become.
 Thank you!  We ♥︎ you.... Sento (話した )

 

Risks and challenges
