Christy

Beautiful towels ... since 1850

Christy have been established since 1850, when Henry Christy visited the Palace of the Sultan in Constantinople. He brought back with him a sample of a hand-made, loop pile fabric which was new to the western world. His brother, Richard Christy analysed how to mechanically reproduce the loop pile, and patented a machine to produce towels on a large scale.

The first Christy towels were shown in the Great Exhibition of 1851 at the Crystal Palace. A set was presented to Queen Victoria, who liked them so much she ordered more. Christy have long been renowned for their high quality and luxury towels, supplying the needs of very prestigious customers.

Today, Christy are the brand leaders in bathroom towels. The Christy designers ensure that a wide range of both fashionable and traditional colours are available in plain-dyed towels, and that all tastes are catered for with a wide selection of patterned and embellished towels. Also available are co-ordinating bath rugs and robes.
