In its natural state, wood is a relatively hard, unforgiving material. It’s certainly not the kind of thing you want to wrap around your naked body when you leave the shower.

When you break down the timber into individual fibers, however, you find that wood isn’t so hard after all. In fact, beechwood fibers are just as soft as cotton. In addition, the wood fibers are considerably more absorbent.

Kushel beech fiber towels take advantage of this amazing material to provide a little luxury in the bathroom.

What are wood fibers?

When you pick up a piece of wood, you’re not actually holding a solid material. The grain you can see is made up of individual fibers, squeezed together to form a very sturdy column.

These fibers have certain attributes that allow the tree to thrive. Firstly, they are flexible. As a result, the tree can bend in the wind rather than snapping. The fibers are also very good at soaking up water, and strong enough to support the immense canopy above.
