Davidson Teams With Microban
Davidson Cotton Co. has launched bath towels, hand towels and washcloths with Microban antimicrobial protection. Labeled BIF, for "built-in freshness," the towels are differentiated by a unique ribbed cuff and absorbent plied yarns in the pile. They are available in eight colors, and will retail around $9.99 at department and specialty store channels. It is the first U.S. towel supplier to use Microban.
