The perfect beach towel

The perfect beach towel

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 next 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. We have many beautiful patterns in production right now, so I am sure you will be able to find the perfect match for you for next summer.

Weavers Project in Takeo, Cambodia

Weavers Project in Takeo, Cambodia

Weavers Project was founded by Sonas and the Meas family 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 in learning the skills of weaving.

Weavers Project is looking to change that. By providing training in weaving, they do not only offer a source of income to people in rural communities, but also a hope for a brighter future for the weavers and their families. The weavers are included in the entire process from the design of the items and dyeing of the yarn, to the final product, and this inclusion sparks professional pride, empowerment, and motivation, which shows in the beautiful patterns and color combinations that are truly unique for Weavers Project.
