Established in 1934 in Imabari Shikoku, Japan. Kontex has been proudly designing and producing original textile products. Since the beginning, their teams have successfully introduced some of the most fashionable and functional towels to the world. Kontex use traditional weaving machines and considered plant fibres. This process brings out the natural softness of the materials and makes these towels as soft and silky as cashmere, yet durable enough for everyday use.
Biome acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation (Burwood), Bundjalung, Yugambeh and Koombumerrii people (Southport), and Yuggera and Turrbul people (Meanjin / Brisbane) as the traditional owners and custodians of the land that we work on. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
