German term or phrase: Uni Walk
Can anyone tell me what "Uni Walk" means in the context of towelling, such as in the product description on the following website?

English translation:solid/plain color (single ply) terry towel
Explanation:
*Uni* means *unifarben* = plain/solid color

Walk Frottier = terry towelling (siehe Oxford Duden)

I also found *single ply terry towel*, which seems to be a more accurate translation of *Walkfrottier*, but I am not sure how familiar this term is to customers
