The article reviews the functional aspects of terry towels based on past research works. Different types of terry fabrics have been studied for effect of washing on some properties. Towels have been subjected to different washing cycles. After each cycle, the rate of water absorption, total amount of water absorbed, surface and compression characteristics have been assessed by gravimetric absorbency testing system, image analysis methods, and KES-FB 3 system respectively. Different theories and

Both dynamic and static water absorbency along with the initial time lag immerse are found to be the equally important attributes of the water absorbency performance of terry fabrics. The influence of some structural characteristics of terry fabrics on the rate of sorption have been studied.
