Somerside Seven Sisters - Large Beach Towel
Painted by the very talented Natalie Jade, a contemporary indigenous artist based in Victoria. The artwork is based on the seven sisters star within the Pleiades Star cluster which has a special meaning to Aboriginal people.
Please note this is a hand-painted print so the towel contains natural blemishes and imperfections as the artist intended.
Large Size: 160cm x 90cm (Bigger than your standard beach towel)
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.
