Sunny days by the beach might feel very far away at this time of the year, but the lead time for the handwoven beach towels is several months, so I have to decide on the designs and patterns for this summer’s collection within the next week.
I am working closely with Weavers in Takeo in Cambodia, and we have experimented with different kinds of thickness for both the fabric and the individual threads. They have come up with a really nice quality that is soft and thick, but light enough to fit in your beach bag.
The beach towels are slightly thicker than a Turkish towel and the individual threads are thicker, so you are in for a warm, comforting hug, when you get out of the water. The beach towels are just the right size for a standard sun bed, but they are also thick enough to use as a blanket, if you are lying directly on the sand or having a picnic in the park. They are 100% cotton, which makes them very absorbent, and they dry quickly in the sun.
You can rent the beach towels for a month at a time, but I am considering making a few of the most popular designs available for sale too. We have many beautiful patterns in production right now, so I am sure you will be able to find the perfect match for you this summer.
