What is a Vat-Dyed(Indanthrane) Towel?

Vat-dyed pool beach towels

There are two types of dyeing processes that can be used to dye a towel. Vat(Indanthrane) dyed or Reactive dyed.

We can also categorize the dying process as yarn-dyed towels or plain-dyed towels in manufacturing.  But there is no need to explain in more detail here.

ı will summarise the vat-dyed towels’ pros and cons as below.


* Washable at 90 degrees; That allows hotels to use colored towels.

* The colors withstand from harsh chemicals and chlorine even after more no of washes. That’s why it is suitable for pool, spa and hair salon towels.

* Insoluble in water; So we the fastness property is good.

* Vat dyes work on Cotton, Wool and also other natural fibers.

*They are color-fast, do not bleed, and retain the color much longer than the reactive dye processç We prefer vat-dyed process for Cabana Strıpe towels otherwise the colors bleed in white stripes.

* The colors are not fade more quickly.


* VAT dye process is around 15 % more expensive than reactive dyes. But keep in mind we can use these towels longer than reactive dyed towels so we can save also in this way.

* A vat dyes towel color does not be bright as colors in the reactive dye process
