Review: The Ultimate Beach Towel by Tesalate

Recently, Inner West Mums were contacted by Tesalate to try out their innovative sand-free towels. As a family of self-confessed beach addicts, we were very excited to test these out but I’ll admit, we were also a little skeptical!

We all know how messy beach trips can be with the kids and the effort needed to make it as stress-free as possible. We’ve mastered the art of packing, unpacking and repacking (pro tip: maybe obvious, but rinse the beach toys and kid’s swimmers in the ocean). However, no matter how well you shake your towels and how sand-free they appear to be, towels always seem intent on smuggling a ton of sand home with you. However, for the first time since having kids (maybe ever, actually), thanks to our Tesalate towels, we are smugglers no more!

More Than Meets the Eyes

Besides the stunning range of designs (it is very hard to pick just one), the technology and attention to detail behind Tesalate towels is what makes them super smart and luxurious. Made from ‘Absolite’ fabric technology, sand is repelled – even when wet. The Tesalate towel comes in three sizes, extra large (‘Towel for Two’), regular and now a new gym-sized towel, with clever antibacterial technology.

I was really impressed with the quality of the towels, not only do they perform well but they are beautiful to look at too. In between beach visits, we have even taken to draping the ‘Bohemian’ towel over furniture to create colour in our home space! The Towel for Two is sold as a two-person towel, but is great for families, you can easily accommodate one adult and two littlies.

I love that the towel rolls/folds up so compactly, leaving room for everything else. They are also super-light, and it’s a relief not to be lugging a bag-full of heavy, sandy wet towels home! I am also a lover of the small details – each towel comes with a drawstring slip case, has a loop for hanging and has an equally cool pattern on the reverse side.

What We Loved:

  • It really is sand free! Made with cutting-edge textile technology, ‘AbsorbLite’ fabric, so that sand is repelled with a quick shake
  • Lightweight
  • Folds easily and is super compact – fits in your bag perfectly leaving plenty of room for all your other beach essentials
  • Dries quickly and is ultra-absorbent – can absorb up to a litre of water
  • Stunning range of eye-catching designs to suit all styles
  • The small details – loop for hanging, reversible pattern, has a double-stitched hem for durability

If you are a frequent or occasional beach visitor, the Tesalate beach towel is a must have accessory for making your beach visit as stress-free as possible, letting you maximise the r’n’r!
