Tokio 2 Towel

By designer and textile expert Michele Rondelli, the Tokio 2 towel/blanket is an elegant take on the humble polka dot. The cheerful but sophisticated product is crafted from woven cotton jacquard—unlike most beach towels. Plus, no crowd needs to see the same side twice since it’s reversible, featuring blue and orange spots on two different background colors.

Weave Towel

Reversible and made in Turkey from 100% terry cotton, this Dusen Dusen weave towel is a cheerfully patterned but sophisticated option for beach and pool days. At 650 GSM, this towel is heavier than those intended for the bathroom, so it’s extra absorbent and comfy atop poolside tiles.

Woodgrain Towel

With a jacquard woven woodgrain graphic, the aptly named Woodgrain towel from Bless features a predominantly black pattern on one side and an inverted, mostly white version on the other. The swirling graphic piece has white trims and is made from a mid-weight terrycloth cotton.
