Christy

The official towel supplier to Wimbledon and Ascot Racecourse is the place to go for a linen-cupboard refresh.

They’ve been making towels at Christy since 1850. Yes, you read that right. In 1850, Henry Christy returned to England from Turkey, bringing with him the idea of a looped pile fabric that could be used for drying off. His first terry towels were shown at the Great Exhibition in 1851. Queen Victoria was given a set, she ordered more and the rest is history…

Today, the company still stocks its Royal Turkish Towel as well as luxurious bathrobes, bath mats, bed linens and accessories. They are also the official supplier of towels to Wimbledon and Ascot Racecourse.

When you need to refresh your linen cupboard, look no further than this proud, heritage brand. Here, we pick six of our favourites from Christy.
