Sewn-In Loops on Bath Towels

Why don't they exist on every bath towel? One Apartment Therapy reader reminded us in the comments on yesterday's Aarikka towel clip post that some bath towels already have a loop sewn in for hanging on hooks...

That jogged our memory to our Marimekko set - the only bath towels we've ever owned with the nifty detail. The towel's fabric label is sewn diagonally into a corner, creating a loop that's perfect for hanging the towel on space-saving hooks instead of bars. No slipping off and no towel clip required. Plenty of tea towels have a corner loop for hanging them up, and we'd like to see the heavier bath towel follow suit.

Apartment Therapy reader, the polish chick, also points out that it's quite easy to sew loops into bath towels that don't already have them. We can imagine it would be and we're going to have to give this a try.

Does anyone have recommendations of other bath towel brands that have a hanging loop sewn in? We'd love to compile a list of go-to sources we can depend on for this thoughtful design move. (Thanks, the polish chick!) Images: Marimekko
