Why so “Zen” wonderful? Here’s why, Zen is not just the feeling of letting go, but it’s also a practice according to the monks. The use of the word comes from the lifestyle of Zen monks, striving to seek “the Buddha within.” I suppose the “feeling of Zen” would be the feeling of becoming everything and nothing at the same time and a transition into absolute tranquility and peace. Many Zen thinkers say that Zen was initiated once Buddha achieved Enlightenment.
How does all of this translate into towels you ask? Well, according to Zen Habits, it is about “finding simplicity in the daily chaos of our lives. It’s about clearing the clutter so we can focus on what’s important, create something amazing, find happiness”. And that’s exactly what we’ve done in finding these organic bamboo towels. They’re free of pesticides and chemicals, sustainable and a renewable resource , They are made with viscose from bamboo fabric that has natural wicking abilities making it super absorbent and they are ultra soft and cozy with thermal regulating properties ….much softer than Egyptian cotton.
To us, keeping away harmful chemicals that could absorbed into our skin, not to mention our children’s skin whose are 5 times thinner than ours! Knowing that at least one product we use each day of our lives is a sustainable and renewable resource certainly contributes to the “Zen” feeling, the feeling of ”letting go” or “enlightenment” we would love to achieve every day.
