How well does The Copenhagen Towel dry?

The Copenhagen Towel is highly absorbent and extremely soft and durable. You will be amazed when you dry off in it. It gives a completely different feeling than a regular terry towel, as it is so light weight and soft (and delightfully easy to wrap around your hair).

Where are The Copenhagen Towel by Nordifakt towels produced?

We produce in Portugal, at factories we know and have visited. We stand for responsible conditions for workers and textiles.

How much CO2 will I save using The Copenhagen towels?

It is recommended to wash regular towels at 60 degrees to kill the bacteria and most people tumble their towels afterwards. The Copenhagen Towel only needs to be washed at 30 degrees or less, and can be washed and tumbled much less than a regular towel. With that, we estimate that you can save around 2.000kg of Co2 every year, which is the same as a flight from London to Berlin.

How much water will I save using The Copenhagen Towels?

Your washing machine uses 44 liters of water everytime you do a load of laundry (@Bolius 2019). If you are a family of 4, with just 1 load of towels every week, you will save up to 1.800 liters of water every year. Because we don´t think you will wash your Copenhagen towels more than once a month (maybe less), it means you will save at least 75% of your laundry from towels.


Is Nordifakt planning on launching more products?

Yes! We believe there is opportunity for so much more. Through natural growth, we will add additional design-focused, antibacterial products, that helps you combat the dreaded choirs while being kind to our planet.

What is the best way to break in my towels?

As with any regular towel, our towels have to be broken in to achieve max absorbency. We recommend soaking them for a minimum of 24 hours. Some vinegar can be added to the soak for better result. You might find that you need to wash your towel, once, twice or more after the soak before they dry optimally.
