Wondered What a Tekla Beach Towel Would Look Like? This Is It!
Our appreciation for Tekla grows with each new release. Maybe it’s the general cool of Copenhagen that’s affecting us; maybe it’s the fact that their products are made in a mindful way with natural high-quality materials; maybe it’s the fresh and fun feel of their design. Nevertheless, we’re always excited to see what they come up with, and this time it’s a trio of beach towels that just came out the other day.
Tekla themselves describes the new drop as “simple and naive”, partly referring to the abstract cut-out silhouettes – a palm, a crab, an octopus – created by Danish creative Alberte Holm Andresen. And when combined with the highly saturated colors (unexpected colorways being one of the brand’s signature trades) they create a childlike playfulness that would surely make any moment feel like a vacation; at least they get us in a beachy mood.
Now to the nerdy facts and numbers that really says it all: Each towel is made in Portugal from a 70 percent organic and 30 percent recycled terry cotton certified by Oeko-Tex, which guarantees that no harmful chemicals have been used in production. The soft and absorbent fabric is jacquard woven in 550g terry, reversing the patterns from front to back. This makes the towels equally pretty on both sides, and just a little bit extra special.
Which one is your favorite? Head over to Tekla to check them out!
