6 Sustainable & Organic Towels to Lounge on this Summer
Whether you’re at the beach, the park or simply enjoying the sun on your terrace, make sure you do so with your comfort and the planet in mind. We’ve compiled a list of our favourite sustainable towels for lounging, all which are made ethically from organic, natural materials.
The bath towel so chic you’ll want to take it out with you; Baina’s line of contemporary organic towelling was created to celebrate the daily bathing ritual. The label are committed to creating timeless collections that are made in portugal from GOTS organic cotton. Baina’s towels come in a range of sizes but if your towel is for lounging we recommend their pool size which come in colourful and reversible designs.
Founded by a father and daughter duo, Summah believe in consciously creating pieces that last a lifetime with minimal impact. Their beautiful Turkish towels are made from either GOTS certified or OEKOTEX fabric that is certified free from hazardous chemicals and loomed in Turkey by artisans celebrating craftsmanship and the revival of a tradition.

Woven from 100% organic and locally grown Kala cotton, this towel by Pico Goods is beautifully un-dyed and naturally flecked. The irregularities and colour differences within the weave make each piece wonderfully unique and are a reminder of the handmade process and natural materials used. Also available in a mini version which is great for little ones, hair, hands or faces!
Not technically a towel, but The Wylde’s Lovers Sarong is the perfect accompaniment to parks, beaches or your garden this summer. The Wylde operate a slow fashion approach with their trans-seasonal collection of naturally dyed pieces which are ethically crafted from organic textiles at a small, family run factory in Bali. Beautiful and versatile, it is crafted from 100% natural linen and also doubles up as a beach cover up, what’s not to love?!
Each Loom Towel is woven by hand on traditional Turkish shuttle looms with 100% organic cotton & linen. Just like us, Loom believe in longevity. Their beautiful collection of textiles are un-treated, non-coated and chemical free to ensure they are long lasting, with excellent absorbency and plushness. Loom offer a wide range of home textiles from bath towels and robes to kitchen cloths. For the purpose of lounging, we especially love their organic cotton beach towels which are not only kind on your skin but kind on the planet too. Find their shop here.
Copenhagen based label, Tekla offer a range of minimal yet beautifully crafted home textiles from towels to bed sheets. In a range of sizes and colours, Tekla’s towels are made from 100% organic and Oeko-Tex certified cotton and extra combed, making them softer, stronger and smoother than conventional cotton fibres, and in our opinion, especially comfortable for lounging on!
