Somerside Large Beach Towel - Aussie Dreamtime
SomerSide towels are all made from 85% post-consumer plastic bottles. Recycled plastic bottles are transformed into polyester fabric to be used to create our amazing towels. It takes 8 to 14 plastic bottles to make one SomerSide towel, ultimately preventing these plastic bottles from ending up in landfills or our oceans.
Transforming plastic bottles into such a functional and technologically advanced fabric is an innovative process. Firstly the bottles are collected from recycling centres. The lids and labels are removed before the bottles are washed. The bottles are shredded in flakes, which are melted down and extruded as fibres. These fibres are combined with 15% Polyamide to bring you the softness of the Somerside Towels.
Hand painted by Australian Contemporary Indigenous artist Saltwater Dreamtime, the artwork is a mixture of traditional blue and green dot-work for those earth and water lovers.
Please note this is a hand-painted print so the circles contain blemishes and imperfections as the artist intended.
