There’s reason to celebrate this summer, the heavy, wet, sandy towel is done!

How good does that sound? Is it true? Yes, indeed it is. Forget the days of shaking out wet, sand encrusted towels. Forget the towels that dropped a residue of sand so big it carpeted your car. Forget, the damp scratchy grains that chafed your body and journeyed into every part of your personal landscape. 

Modern technology has arrived and brought with it a whole new way of having a great day at the beach. The new towel is created from a clever weave of material and microfibres that easily roll up into a compact, easy-to-carry accessory. For even more convenience, the special blend is fast-drying and lightweight, adding another dimension of practicality to its features.

The beach isn’t the only place to benefit from this technology. The innovative fibre blend incorporating principles of evaporative cooling means this technology can keep you fresh and cool when playing sport, exercising, participating in outdoor activities or just keeping cool. You may even like to keep it on hand for a cool-down after a yoga class.

Finally, a new era of technology is making it even more fun to stay cool and save the beach.

The clever towels come in a range of patterns and sizes:
