Waffles, the sweet and crispy dough-based snacks that are sold throughout the world, are known and loved by just about everyone. All waffles, whether from America, Belgium or Hong Kong, are made by frying dough in a patterned steel grid, and waffle bathrobes are so called due to their fabric’s resemblance to the waffle-grid shape.

It is, however, the fabric’s extremely unusual square-patterned weave that gives it it’s “waffle” label and that makes the robes so very soft yet durable as well as so comfortable yet highly absorbent. Kimono robes are, furthermore, usually double stitched to give them that extra bit of strength, while spa robes are ultra-lightweight and plain waffle robes are known for the speed at which they dry.

Waffles are versatile and can be enjoyed with cream, syrup, fruit, cheese, peanut butter or simply with dusted sugar. Waffle robes are similarly versatile and can be used at home, at the spa or at the gym, and, as they don’t take up a lot of space, they can easily be packed into a suitcase and taken on vacation. Waffle bathrobes also come in a variety of styles, colors and sizes, and, as with monogrammed towels, Waffle robe owners can have their initials embroidered on the latest addition to their bathwear wardrobe in a number of hues and alphabet and letter styles.

Consumers in the market for buying Waffle robes should, while they’re in the mood, also pick up some matching towels and maybe even some bath mats. All three styles of Waffle bathrobe are, furthermore, unisex, and they’re also all machine-washable. They can therefore be enjoyed by the whole family, and, with their discounted prices, free monogramming and free gift-wrapping, they also make first rate gifts.

Whether they’re served with bacon, kiwifruit, chicken, or good old maple syrup, waffles are loved by all, as are the plush and beautiful Waffle bath and spa robes.

Stylish Bathrobe

For the ultimate in stylish comfort and luxury, treat yourself to an attractive summer bathrobe or kimono. Just imagine leaning back in your contoured deck chair or chaise lounge by the pool after a swim wrapped in your soft, elegant silk kimono or Egyptian cotton robe. What a relaxing way to spend a few minutes or, if you’re lucky, hours of your summer day or early evening. Whether you are on vacation, a business trip, or at home by your own beautiful outdoor pool, you will agree that such completely calm, comfortable leisure time is excellent for both your general health and peace of mind.

In addition, you will want to expand your casual wardrobe to include several different styles of robes, kimonos and terry cloth garments to suit your everyday lifestyle as well as any special occasions. For after-bath and sauna, you’ll need various types of cotton and terry wear. For example, a short fluffy terry robe with loose fit and short or three-quarter length sleeves is great for springtime, summer months, and warm climates. In colder temperatures and seasons, you’ll want to luxuriate in the cozy warmth of a longer, thicker, textured terry robe with full-length sleeves or a kimono of warm eco-friendly cotton or natural silk fabric.

The best hotels provide each guest with a soft terry or organic cotton robe, usually hanging on the back of the door to your bath or in your clothes closet. And many spas or health and sports clubs offer cotton or terry robes, shirts and jackets for your convenience and comfort. Especially when your lifestyle is busy and complex, you may have a limited amount of time to devote to sports, exercise and leisure activities. All the more reason, then, that you should enjoy the comforts of soft, elegant cotton, terry or silk sportswear and accessories to enhance your every health-related activity and experience. If you haven’t tried them already, treat yourself to organic cotton tennis and golfing wear. Or shop for the latest attractive fabric colors and designs in after-swim wear and leisure clothing. You simply can’t go wrong when choosing modern natural fabrics with cool, comfortable textures and designs to meet the demands and needs of your busy, complicated, and health-oriented modern lifestyle.

Kimono Robe

Americans do not include the word “kimono” in their vocabulary, but the word is beginning to appear in American companies who sell robes. Kimonos are a traditional Japanese garment worn by both women and men.

If an elderly Japanese couple is seen wearing a kimono, they likely appreciate traditional values. However, for some members of the Japanese culture, such as dancers or geishas, the kimono is worn as well.

Kimonos are made of silk and are usually very expensive. They are generally one-of-a-kind, which means that your kimono design will not be duplicated in another kimono design.

The garments are worn with an obi, otherwise known as a sash. The sash holds it in place. In addition, with the traditional dress, special shoes known as gate or sore are worn with a kimono. One of the main differences between a men’s kimono and a women’s are the sleeves. Women’s sleeves are deeper on kimonos than men’s

The American kimono is not actually a kimono, but in the spirit of a kimono. Consider it a robe. The best robes are usually the most comfortable, more so than the most elaborate. A waffle kimono bathrobe, for example, is a great item to wear after a shower or just around the house.

bathroom

Although luxury towels, bath mats and bathrobes may seem like Western concepts, a little research will show that almost every continent has chipped in to make robes, hand towels and bath towels what they are today.

The more popular styles of bathrobe include the waffle kimono and the terry velour kimono robes, and, of course, everyone knows that the kimono came out of Japan, where, for centuries, it was the outfit of choice for not only men and women, but children as well. The modern bathrobe is, in fact, extremely similar to the classic kimono as, not only can it too be worn by both sexes – and there are also special kids robes – the luxurious waffle and terry bathrobes can, just like today’s kimono, also be made from cotton and polyester.

The oriental influence can also be seen in the stunning line of quality bamboo towels and bathrobes that are made of an innovative bamboo cotton / rayon mix and that are also available in a myriad of colors. Bamboo is an extremely versatile plant that’s used to make anything from fabric to musical instruments, and it grows naturally in both East and South East Asia. Bamboo rayon is also a very important component of the soft, organic and eco friendly Turkish bathrobes/towels that are so popular today, and, as Turkey is one of the world’s major exporters of textiles, the latter also serves to highlight the Eurasian influence on quality bathroom wear.

Moving from Asia to Africa, the dark continent’s influence is nowhere more noticeable than in the world of bath towels where Egyptian cotton towels, although fairly rare, are among the best on the market. With or without a monogram, Egyptian cotton washcloths, hand towels and bath towels are highly sought after and are found not only in the luxury spa but also in the middle-class home right next to the more pedestrian tubmat and floor mat.

The USA is also part of the equation, and the cotton used to make the delectable Supima towels and bathrobes is cultivated in California, Texas, Arizona and New Mexico.

Kimono Robe

The term “kimono” is Japanese. It refers to a robe worn by men, women and children. The traditional Japanese kimono includes the robe, socks, obi or sash, sandals, etc. It is a national costume of Japan and can cost thousands of dollars. However, in the United States it is typical to see a cozy robe given the name of kimono. For example, a cozy terry kimono bathrobe is a favorite.

An American version of a kimono robe is great for a variety of ways. They are perfect for after a shower, by the pool or just lounging around the house. These are the types of robes that you want to keep close by for easy access.

Finding the perfect kimono robe can get tricky. Pajamas are easy to find and so are nightgowns, but robes are not always as available at physical stores. Ordering the perfect robe online from a reputable company assures that you can get the perfect purchase.
