Santa is bringing us a whole pile of Tesalate Towels for Christmas.
That is the bottom line here. Read on to discover why I am so in love with these astonishing towels. They are proudly Australian designed which is a big plus for us, being from a small local startup that has seen a need and filled it, much to the delight of Aussie and international beach-goers everywhere!
The way the sand falls off these towels is nothing short of amazing. With young kids, a trip to the beach usually means bringing half the beach home with us in the car. But this is no longer the case. You hardly even have to shake these babies off and the sand just falls away, wet or dry.
What Is Tesalate?
Tesalate is a Sydney based company created by two friends who had a brilliant idea. To create a sand-free beach towel that is absorbent and completely sand-free.
What Are Tesalate Towels Made Of?
Tesalate towels are made from this innovative AbsorbLite microfibre fabric which is engineered out of polyester and polyamide. Standard beach towels are usually made of cotton which has been woven into an absorbent looped terrycloth. This provides comfort and absorbency sure, but a regular towel gets super heavy when it’s been used. The ability of cotton terry fabric to hold water is the very reason we use this for beach towels however this also means that they take ages to dry.
Another drawback is the way ‘normal’ towels hold the sand thanks to the loopy side pressed down onto the beach. Add a wet butt to this, and you have a wet, heavy, sticky and sandy towel to take home no matter how hard you shake it off.
Microfiber is superior to cotton mainly due to its massive capacity for absorbency, the actual structure of microfibre filament giving it a larger absorptive surface area. Tesalate towels can hold 1000mls of water without being drippy. We tested this and it is real! There’s a lot of cutting edge technology going on here!
Do Tesalate Towels Work?
Of course, they do! Once you discover the amazing benefits of these towels, you will not be going back to regular boring towels.
They are lighter, dry much quicker and sand doesn’t stick to them at all. This stops annoying sand getting into your car, house or all over your body.
Just Grab one here now and join the sand free revolution!
How Do You Wash Tesalate Towels?
Easy! They are very durable and can take a pounding but the easiest way to care for your brightly coloured sand free towel is to:
- Cold Machine Wash
- Hang Out On The Line To Dry
- Or If You Have Limited Time Tumble Dry On Low
The waffle weave of the Tesalate Towel gives it a nice comfy feel, making it a pleasure to wrap yourself up in while making it impossible for sand to stick to, all while being able to fold up into the size of a novel! And to make matters even better, the towels come in their own handy drawstring carry bag which I absolutely love!
The Tesalate Look
Tesalate have done something even more impressive with their towels, not only do they feel soft, absorb a litre of water, repel sand, dry quickly and fold up small, they also have insatiably good looks and are literal head turners at the beach or poolside.
My friend and I recently tested these out at a resort swimming pool and found that everybody was checking us out (more than usual haha) thanks to the bright gorgeous prints we were laying on. Everybody wanted to know where we got these epic towels from!
There are right now 38 stunning vibrant designs to choose from which means you can keep everybody in your family happy and match unique personalities with their own very special towels.
Designs are constantly being updated so check website for current models.
My favourites are the To Tuscany and Malibu (they are the ones we have), but I luuurve Heartbeats, Between Two Palms and Leaf me Alone as well. I think my kids will be getting an extra present from Santa this year!
Who wouldn’t want to be seen on such a stunningly beautiful and technologically advanced beach towel! It is not every day you get to lay on a beautiful engineering wonder.
Hot New Tesalate Gym Towels!
Out now on the Tesalate website are the Tesalate Gym towel range.
We just received our first pair for our workout sessions at the gym and yoga!
They are awesome to say the least. So small and compact they practically roll up and fit into your pocket.
So many funky designs to choose from and they still use the advanced sand free, ultra absorbant material that has made Tesalate so popular.

Tesalate Uses and Care
I have been using my towels poolside, on the beach, camping riverside, at the gym, and at a yoga class too. They are easy to wash on a cold cycle and the print has so far not faded. Because there are no cotton loops to speak of, there are no pulled threads which so often happens to ‘normal’ towels.
They dry so quickly too which has always been an issue for us, especially because we do so much camping. We will be able to confidently take these towels overseas with us next year as they are lightweight and pack up so small into a neat little package, but they fold out to a generous sized 160 cm x 80 cm (63 x 31 inches) equal to a full-sized beach towel.
How Much Do Tesalate Towels Weigh?
These towels weigh around 500grams which makes them great for travel, taking to the Gym or just for use around the home. You don’t even notice that they are in your bag.

I would dearly love a tesalate towel for my husband for xmas.
They are so nice! We really love ours! Good Luck!
I never tried a towel from such a fabric. To be honest I had never heard of these towels before so reading your article really picked my interest. Now I would like to try them out as until now I was using traditional towels as most people do with all the disadvantages that you have mentioned above. Thank you for informing us and if given the chance I will for sure try them out.
Thank you Stratos! And not only are they amazing and functional, they look great too!

The beach side has this cool refreshing breeze that comes with it and it’s a perfect spot for families to relax amd spend quality time together. Most times, when I go to the beach, I love to lie down on the ground and I’m careful the kinda towels I buy for this purpose. But with this, I believe the Tesalate towels are good enough.
They really are the best towels I have seen! Have you got yours yet?
This is a great article! I can see why you are so excited by these towels. They sound more like an article from a science fiction novel rather than an actual product because of their cool features. It is absolutely brilliant that they are so compact but also repel and absorb water without becoming drippy.
I know exactly what you mean, normal beach towels get heavy enough to anchor things down and mess up your car really well! I love the design of these towels as well and I am not surprised that people ask you where you got them.
Thanks for sharing this brilliant product with me, I can’t wait to get my very own!
Yes, they really are that good!

Hi. Is there a discernible difference between the Tesalate and Evolve brand towels?
Hi Kate! There is a bit of a difference between the two! The Evolve brand is cheaper by about $20 and probably not as soft as the Tesalate.
This is mainly because Evolve makes their towels recycled plastic to help the environment.
Evolve has a limited range of colours while Tesalate has a huge range!
The sizes are the same, but I would say the Evolve towels dry a little quicker than the Tesalate towel.
Tesalate is more expensive with a little bit better quality but ticks all the boxes while Evolve is cheaper but also ticks all the boxes.
If you want a bigger range of designs and don’t mind spending more go with Tesalate, but if you like the designs of Evolve and want to save some money and help the environment I would choose Tesalate!
Hope this helps.
Great review, thank you! How does the Dock and Bay towel compare with the Evolve and Tesalate towels?
Tesalate and Evolve are basically the same except for price and print range. Evolve is cheaper.
While Dock and Bay are lighter than the other 2, Dock and Bay aren’t as absorbent but better for travel.
Hope this helps, we will be doing an overall review soon on all the brands.
