Spring Break Time: Beach Towels!

Just in time for spring break and with summer right around the corner, we’ve added some beautiful beach towels made in Turkey by Chortex!  These towels are 100% cotton in a generous 40 by 70 inch size.  The designs are not printed onto the towel, but are part of the weave (this is what is referred to as a yarn dyed design vs. printed).  The weight of the towels is 450 grams per square meter (GSM), which is good for a beach towel.  Beach towels are often made very cheaply with 200 GSM weight.  The quality is definitely what you’d expect from a top towel maker like Chortex!

My favorites are the Moroccan Tile and the Conch Shells.
