Korean has a culture of bathing in public with a special rough fabric almost similar to bath brush. The concept rooted from wet clothing which was hyped up to be in parallel to a body scrubber. The bath towel continues to propagate in Korea and many tourists purchase it as a souvenir because it is good for skin exfoliation.
Koreans use this scrubbing towel to exfoliate dead skin and to make their skin soft. While it massages skin, it helps undergo metabolic change in one’s body.
The whole process of head to toe scrubbing takes at least 10-15 minutes, so generally it starts from the feet up to the upper extremities. Layers of grime that have been accumulating since the last scrub will come and fall off, and that’s how this towel works.
