When it's the middle of summer and the sun's out in a clear blue sky, it's only natural for thoughts to turn to the beach. The cooling water and the fun of the seaside are certainly a big draw. But to really relax in comfort at the beach there is one item that should always take pride of place: a luxuriously made and finished beach towel.
Here at Homecolours we're always impressed at how well leading designers understand the importance of feeling confident in your towel at the beach. The versatile item needs to offer a place to sit and lie down in the sun, to eat a picnic on the beach, and first and foremost to dry off after a dip in the water.
Style and artistic design also play an important role. Ideally, it's useful to have a memorable towel at the beach so that it's harder to misplace, and can also act as a signpost when friends and family are further along the beach or in the sea.
The above Orla Kiely Multi Stem Beach Towel certainly has a strong visual presence that's hard to ignore. Showcasing the label's trademark print of a graphical pattern of a multi stemmed plant and leaves in different colours, the towel is gorgeously produced in 100% cotton. With a generous 430gsm, the material is strong and plush and will dry off quickly both indoors and out.
Another distinctive design and style for the beach is presented by the Descamps Palmette Beach Towel, 100x180cm. A luxurious look of tropicalia presented in two soothing colours, the towel is bound to be a popular choice for beach lovers. Also offering a perfectly styled image at the pool, the towel is made from strong, soft and absorbent cotton. Brings a great look to the important business of drying off after a dip in the water.
An unmissable sight at the middle of a beach scene could be made with the Ban.do Giant Daisy Beach Towel. Offering oversized proportions of 152.5 x 152.5cm, the towel is large enough to sit a group of people in relaxed comfort. Bringing a super-cute look to the beach with its pom-pom detailing around the edge and pink and yellow colours, the daisy towel presents a wonderful sight for holidaymakers. Produced in soft absorbent cotton, the towel is another excellent option for beach visits.
