The dog days of summer have arrived, which means you’ll most likely be spending a good portion of your time trying to cool off. Whether it be lounging by the pool, laying out on sandy beaches, or simply taking a cold shower; you’re going to want a towel handy.
When picking a towel, you’ll want to consider these two attributes: weight and absorbency.
A towel’s weight is measured by GSMs (Grams Per Square Meter) and is an easy way to determine the quality of a towel.
While heavier towels may be seen as more luxurious, take into consideration that they will take longer to dry. Any towel that has over 550 GSMs is considered to be of high quality and made to last longer.
Weighing in at 650 grams per square meter of 100% Turkish combed cotton, our Quick Dry Turkish Towel is highly absorbent and oh-so plush. This towel is quick drying, while absorbing every bit of moisture, making it great for everyday use.
At 700 GSMs, our Bamboo Towel is also highly absorbent, plus boasts a colorful palette that makes it perfect for summertime. Yarn-dyed to hold its color, this towel will be your go-to beach towel for years to come!
Highly dependent on what fabric is used to create the towel, absorbency can vary. Most of the time you will find that a towel is made from some variation of cotton, including: Egyptian cotton, organic cotton, Turkish cotton, and many more.
Our Organic Cotton towel is a customer favorite – not only is this our most absorbent, but it is also one of our most heavy-duty towels!
