What is Absorbency Level and Why Does It Matter in a Bathrobe?

What is Absorbency Level and Why Does It Matter in a Bathrobe? on wholesale.bocaterry.com

It’s a quality that discerning guests will appreciate

When it comes to bathrobes, it can be very easy to get enamored with appearance. People always want their robe to look good (and look good on them). And while style is important, it isn’t the only crucial feature of a bathrobe. After all, a robe is also often intended to be functional – with the ultimate goal of getting someone dry – and this is why absorbency matters.

The benefits of absorbency

There’s something sort of regal about getting out of a shower, bath, or pool and slipping on a robe. Instead of drying off with a towel, there’s a feeling of elegance when the robe does all the work. This is where the absorbency level of the material makes all the difference.

If a guest plans on using the robe as a towel, absorbent materials will soak up water quickly and effectively. And if the robe is worn outside in warmer temperatures – for instance, lounging on the balcony of their hotel room or sipping a drink on the pool deck – an absorbent robe will wick away both water and perspiration, keeping the wearer dry and comfortable. It takes a while to get dry in a robe made of low-quality material, and guests will usually need to reach for a towel.

To figure out how absorbent a material is, it is given a number from 1 to 5 on the absorbency scale. Materials such as terry and velour, for example, have an absorbency level of 5, which make them excellent guest bathrobes.

When purchasing bathrobes, make sure you don’t get fixated on appearance or durability alone. Absorbency is a feature that is inherent to the highest-quality robes used in the hospitality industry. It’s a small but important detail that adds another level of comfort and luxury to your guest’s experience – and one that helps ensure that they remember your property fondly when they make plans to visit again.
