Star hotel towel configuration standard

Towels used in hotels and guesthhouses are mainly made of first-class yarn spun from cotton fibers, and have the advantages of good water absorption, soft touch, and strong three-dimensional effect. Commonly used yarn numbers are 21S, 16S single yarn, 21S / 2, 32S / 2, 40S / 2 double strand, etc. (Spiral products are usually woven with 16S single yarn). Count refers to the number of meters per gram of yarn length at a given moisture recovery (8.5%). The higher the count, the thinner the thread.


The technical requirements for towel fabrics are divided into two aspects: intrinsic quality and appearance quality. Essential qualities include weft density, weight, breaking strength, discoloration resistance and water absorption. Appearance quality includes line blocks, strips, spreadability, damage, printing and dyeing, finishing, and other imperfections.

According to national standards, towel breaking strength: warp direction exceeds 220N and weft direction exceeds 178N. The moisture recovery rate of packaged towels is 7.5% or less. The allowable length and width limits for top-notch products are + 4% and -3% (total length and width are measured at 1/4 of the product). (From both sides or both ends); Weight First Class product deviation tolerances are: -3%, cut pile -5%, otherwise -2.5% (10 pcs excluding towels and quilts) Or 12 pieces); Reactive color fastness including color fastness, soap fastness, 2 types of friction fastness, both reach grade 3 or higher, whiteness must be grade 4 or higher.

Soap fastness refers to the degree of fading of the dyed fabric after soaking in soapy liquid under certain conditions, such as the original fading or stains on the white fabric. Friction fastness is fading due to the action of external friction and water, and can be divided into two types: dry friction and wet friction. The former rubs the cloth with a dry cloth to check the stain condition of the white cloth, and the latter rubs the cloth dyed with the white cloth with 100% water to check the stain condition of the white cloth. Friction fastness is lower than dry friction fastness. The test soaping temperature for cotton fabrics is generally boiling, but the normal cleaning temperature is between 40 ° C and 60 ° C.   


The warp density of the fabric is controlled by the leads, and the number of leads refers to the number of lead teeth per 2 inches long. Therefore, the higher the number of leads, the higher the warp density and strength of the fabric. It will increase again. High-density towels not only have a long life, but also have a thick texture and a full pattern, but they are relatively expensive due to their low weaving efficiency. Generally, the high density warp density is 250 sheets / 10 cm or more.

Identify the quality of the hotel bathroom    

Identification of 4 guest room towels: 

  1. 1.Essential qualities mainly include weight deviation, fracture strength, water absorption, hair loss, fiber content deviation, and discoloration resistance.

  2. 2. Appearance quality indicators mainly include dimensional deviations, surface defects, sewn product quality, and finish quality defects such as hooking and brushing.

  3. The above analysis is only a theoretical analysis of quality. From a perceptual quantification point of view, the number of loops within 25 mm can be measured on a scale to determine the density of 4 towels (the market is divided into medium size).

  4. Density and high density, 14 to 15 loops per inch of medium density, 16 or more high density towel loops. High density towels increase the weave points of the tissue, make it difficult to pull the hair, significantly reduce the phenomenon of pulling the hair, increase the strength by 20% and extend the life by 10%.

  5. Production technology and production costs are relatively high.

Note: Depending on the level of the hotel, the configuration criteria may not be lower than the above specifications and weight, but the actual configuration is generally higher than this standard. This means that the towel specifications and weight may increase, but the star rating requirements should not fall below the above criteria.
