 The Most Iconic Bathrobes of All TimeBathrobes are one of the most important indicators of how you treat your guests. As makers of robes, towels, and spa accessories since 1996, we can tell you that a high quality bathrobe goes a long way when it comes to showing your clients that they are worth the best.

Maintaining Classic Appeal

When thinking about which robes to choose for your establishment, it is wise to remember that there are certain styles that remain iconic throughout time. These are the robes that maintain a classic appeal while doing justice to their purpose, which is to keep you dry and comforted no matter what the situation or the temperature.

The Terry Cloth Robe

One of the most iconic of all models is the terry cloth robe. Luxurious and stylish, it has been around since the late 19th century when Samuel Holt designed it in 1848. It then went into full production in 1864 in his factory in New Jersey. Men and women alike became instant fans, instantly appreciating the value of the fabric that could wick away moisture in the blink of an eye.

Standing the Test of Time

The terry cloth robe can come in all sorts of colors, but to us, the most iconic is when it stays a simple white. Adorned with a beautifully styled monogram or logo, it stands the test of time as a glorious tribute to elegance and élan.

That Movie Star Look

When you think of a terry robe, you can imagine a sexy, glamorous Hollywood image brought forth by move stars such as Lana Turner in “The Postman Always Rings Twice” or Katherine Hepburn in “The Philadelphia Story.” You can also think of the glorious swimmer, Esther Williams, and her poolside glamour in films of the 1940’s. And then there’s Marilyn in that famous Life Magazine spread, wearing an oversize terry that did more for sexuality than any nude photo ever could. The Terry MystiqueTerry cloth robes were always an emblem of café society, with F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda sporting them on the Riviera and elsewhere. Today’s movie and sports stars still uphold the terry mystique. One only has to think of Bruce Willis wearing a classic terry as if it was a tux in some recent interviews.

How Its Made

Terry is created by using a special looping technique that twists the uncut strands for the ultimate in absorbency. The cloth is woven or knitted and made in two layers, one on a loom to function as the base and the other a raised warp or pile that is what gives terry its full appeal.
