Terry towels

The terry towels have not been pre-washed which means that the loops are not yet "fixed". We recommend to soak the terry towels in cold water for approx. 1 hour and then wash.

Shrinkage will make the loops firm - an minimize the risk of thread pull-out.

If you need additional advice, here are som suggestions for washing and caring for your damask products in the best possible way:

  • Do not wash at low temperatures the first tow times to avoid colour runs. The colour is stabilised at the specified temperature and the product can be washed at a lower temperature afterwards.

  • Hand washing is not gentler than machine washing. Therefore machine wash is preferable, unless the washing symbols specify otherwise. The pre-wash programme can be used.

  • Use detergents without bleach and/or optical white to protect the colour of the damask product. Preferably use DAMAVASK, which can be purchased from GEORG JENSEN DAMASK.

  • Always dose as specified on the packaging. Using too much detergent can result in allergies and skin problems.

  • Maintain the absorbing quality of terry cloth towels, tea towels and kitchen towels by washing without fabric softener. Fabric softener can also dull the bright colours of the damask products. If you nonetheless prefer to use softener, follow the dosing instructions on the packaging.

  • Always treat stains before washing. Follow the instructions on the stain remover and always test it in an inconspicuous place. See our site for further stain removal suggestions.

  • Wash white/light-coloured products separately.

  • Do not wash terry towels, socks, etc. with damask tablecloths and bed linen.

  • Do not overfill the machine. This may result in permanent creases, which are impossible to iron out and the product may develop worn folds.

  • Stretch the product gently after washing and let damask tablecloths and bed linen dry naturally if possible.

  • Tumble drying causes unnecessary wear to damask tablecloths and bed linen.

  • Never tumble dry wool.

About Damask

For generations, Georg Jensen Damask has designed and manufactured Damask woven quality textiles for the home. From humble beginnings in the 15th century to the Georg Jensen Damask of today, craftsmanship, tradition and design have underpinned the vision to create innovative products with a respect for history.

Our long-standing tradition of working with Denmark’s finest architects, designers and artists ensures a wide collection of Damask tablecloths, runners, table mats, bed linen, terry cloth, dish towels and home accessories – naturally rooted in the different designers’ individual inspiration and style.

In 2000 we were designated Purveyor to Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark. The appointment followed many years’ collaboration with the Danish royal family, in particular on the specially designed Damask tablecloth for Queen Margrethe II & Prince Henrik of Denmark’s silver wedding in 1992.

Georg Jensen Damask is headquartered in Kolding.
