SAMMIMIS differ in WEIGHT, WEAVE, COLOUR AND NOW SHAPE
SAMMIMIS ranges – with even more choice within a weight there may be different weaves which creates a different feel and may dictate the uses.
Weight– This is the amount of cotton used in each towel. The heavier the more cotton used. The more cotton the more absorbent and softer they become.
The Classic weave, also known as the cross twill weave is a strong cotton weave with closely woven threads in a simple criss-cross pattern. The Classic weave as in the Santorini, Cassis and Cote D’Azur range and like most Turkish towels this is a flat tightly woven weave. To make this weave feel softer we use thicker yarn for the Cassis and Cote D’Azur ranges. This is a lightweight, cool weave with a smooth and silky finish. Once washed this weave plumps up making your SAMMIMIS softer and feeling thicker.
The Diamond weave also called broken lozenge twill or simply diamond weave.This weave is premium weight and breathable. Our diamond weave has been loomed loser than the classic weave making it feel very soft and giving it luxurious look. You’ll find the diamond weave in our Alanya range. The pattern/structure lends itself to be very versatile and can be used for anything from a wrap to a throw rug.
The Taormina weave. This weave is called rips and a very special weave that is specific to our Taormina range – 375g. It’s beautiful to touch, is soft and due to its luxury looks, is often used as a corporate gift. The Taormina weave is pre-washed assuring no shrinkage due to its weave structure.
The Herringbone weave is a diagonal weave with a pattern resembling a reversing zigzag or a fish skeleton (which is where the name “herringbone” comes from). This weave is more water resistant than plain weaves, so herringbone fabrics dry quickly and are easy to iron. Herringbone has a smooth feel, textured warmth, a soft drape and occasionally a slight sheen. The Herringbone weave you’ll find in our round towel range. Herringbone weave is used in a product to make them more substantial, like the round towel that might be used for the beach or as a picnic rug.
Colour – this comes down to person preference or personality J But the good thing is SAMMIMIS has put together “What colour are you?” so see for yourself this guide will help you to decide.
