It was founded in 1850 in the English mill town of Droylsden, Lancashire. Christy is recognised internationally as designing and producing the highest quality bathroom towels. The new and improved Christy Supreme towel collection uses the unique Hygro technology and is woven using 100% Supima cotton.

The new Royal Turkish Towel has a unique look and feel and is inspired by the first towel ever produced by Christy in 1850.
