This item is designed for your comfort and will be a perfect addition to your so loved linen waffle towels. Because linen is naturally antimicrobial and allows for easy airflow this bath mat will dry quicker than any other cotton ones you have and will stay free of mildew, germs, or unpleasant odors. Other than that, this item is stonewashed for the maximum softness, so you be sure your feet will feel softness every time after leaving a shower or bath and stepping on it.
