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.

Weavers Project in Takeo
Weavers Project in Takeo

Weavers Project was started by the social enterprise Sonas World with the purpose of creating sustainable economic growth in rural communities in Cambodia. Cambodia has a strong tradition of weaving, but it is a dying craft due to the competition from cheaper, factory-made fabric as well as the declining interest among the young generation of learning the skills of weaving.
