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 which 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.
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 its 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 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!
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!
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. 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.
Uses and Care
I have been using my towels poolside, on the beach, camping riverside, at the gym, and at 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.
If you make sure you are subscribed to our mailing list, then you will be among the first to read our re-review on Tesalate Towels. Durability is one of their core standards so we are very interested to discover how well they stand up to a few months of travel with a family like ours! Stay tuned to find out.
Never in my wildest dreams would I buy a beach towel for $79. Not usually anyway. But this towel is simply worth it. It is gorgeous, practical, stylish and functional and totally ticks all my boxes.
Tesalate Towels are durable and easy to care for while doing the job they are supposed to do. You won’t regret the investment. There are other towels out there sure, but none come close to the superior quality feel of these.
