"Our culture is rich, varied, calm, gentle and mesmerising," says Australian Aboriginal artist De Greer Yindimincarlie of the Wiradjuri Nation who designed the stunning Summer Days beach mat
She says: "We are natural-born storytellers; it is the essence of who we are. Open to sharing, and teaching it, it flows out of us and into you and grows in strength with every breath."
Now included in our homewares range, these soft suede-like UPF 50+ microfibre beach towels are made from 80% recycled plastic bottles which have been transformed into polyester fabric. Plastic bottles are collected from recycling centres preventing them from ending up in landfills and the ocean. All labels and lids are removed and the bottles are washed. They are then shredded into flakes which are dried, melted down and extruded into fibres. As a final step, these fibres are mixed with 15% polyamide for softness.
If you're taking your towel down to the beach, the microfibre technology used means this innovative fabric repels sand easily so it won't stick and stays where it belongs, and not in your car or home! It's quick-drying too - half the time of a traditional cotton towel - so no more mildewy, damp odours.
They are the perfect companion on your next trip to the beach, pool, picnic, or on your travels. Unfolded it measures a generous 80x180cm but folds down to fit neatly into a compact, drawstring microfibre carry bag. A different design on each side allows for a different choice each time, depending on your mood and setting. Two looks for the price of one!
