The Beach People

If you were to come inside my home one of the first things you may notice is I have an abundance of blankets. In every room, multiple textures, shapes and colors. So it probably comes as no surprise that beach towels are high up there with with things I really love. After all it's basically a blanket for the beach, right? In other words a combination of my two most favorite things.

Meet The Beach People, an Australian company founded by sisters Emma & Victoria who share not only the bond of sisterhood, but a serious love of the beach. With the support of their friends and family and a sell out first summer, they have expanded into much more than the original creators of the Roundie Towel.

The Beach People graciously gifted me two towels, a classic Roundie Towel from their volume two collection (The Paloma) and a Petite Roundie Towel for P (Oceanic Petite) and when I opened the package I was counting down the days to warmer weather and the coast. I know, same as every other day around these parts.

At first touch the towels feel more like a blanket - so obviously it was love at first sight. Made from a super soft cotton topped with velour and a terry reverse side for quick absorption it feels so much nicer than a towel. Lightweight too for carrying and perfect for wrapping around you or your little one.

The petite line measures 40" in diameter and the classic roundie's measure 60" it's the perfect amount of material. Even Finn circled around mine two times and laid down on it! With lots of design choices to choose from and a thick tassel border it's hard not to want one in every color.

The pricing on the towels is a bit steep with a Roundie Towel coming in at $110 and a petite at $79, but like with many things that cost more, quality really is king and these towels will hold up for years to come. We won't be limiting our use of these towels to just the beach, they are just too pretty to not bring to every outdoor adventure! Plus one of the things I love about a round beach towel is that when you hug it over your shoulders it covers your whole back unlike a rectangle towel. No more shivering!

 Wouldn't you know it that all the fog burned off and it turned out to be a gorgeous day!

The Beach People provided me a Roundie Towel and Petite Roundie Towel in exchange for a review. The opinions expressed here, as always, are 100% my own.
