Its funny how you can be so used to using an every day object being the way it is. That when a product comes along claiming to be a beach towel, but its not in your standard towelling material, just pure 100% cotton. You can become quite skeptical!
I don't know about you but since moving to Australia, I have seen a huge buzz about Turkish Towels. I have seen them in shops all over for quite high prices which always put me off trying them. However, after doing a bit of research... I stumbled across Hamamamas, which I can proudly say is a British brand! (hurrah!!) and has the best prices from £22/$39.
I contacted hamamas to see if I could do a review of one of their towels and the lovely hamamas people said yes!! I have a unhealthy obsession for Mint at the moment, so when I saw the wide choice of colours, I knew this was the one for me. What I love about these towels other than the fast drying properties, is the fact that they are multi purpose! They can be used as blankets, sarongs and table cloths!
Luckily, my towel arrived just before our weekend away to Phillip Island (more pictures of that to come!). It was perfect for when I was sitting on the beach and feeling the wind chill. I think Alex my husband got a bit envious.. and we are already planning on buying a batch to replace all our bath towels. Alex is after one to take surfing with him, as its super fast drying, and takes up hardly any room due to its lightness!
So yes, I admit that I am converted to Hamamamas Turkish Towels!
