Finding a plush, high-quality towel makes such a difference to everyday living. Getting out of the shower and wiping off that excess residue, is best achieved when dried with a thick, absorbing towel to speed up the process. Whether you’re heading out for a beach day, or sinking into the bath for a hot plunge, these eco-friendly luxury towel brands will keep you dry.
Founded by two friends back in 2018, SORA was formed in search for the perfect, multifunctional towel—one that could keep you dry, be used for yoga classes (non-slip), and to travel lightly on weekend getaways. The result was SORA, a sustainable brand which ticked all the boxes, plus its printed on recycled fabric.
One of the most unique attributes about SORA towels—besides the inspiring corporate environmental responsibility—is the stunning designs, curated by artists from across the globe, and many of which are inspired by tropical island living. SORA towels are beautifully simple, highly-absorbent, and light to pack. The towels are also sand-repellent, anti-microbial, and have moisture-activated grip.
