The SORA towel 

How do you make your towels from plastic bottles?

We're glad you asked! To cut a long story short, post-consumer plastic is collected, cleaned, crushed, and turned into pellets, which are eventually made into a yarn and spun into fabric. If you'd like to know in more detail, you can check out the process here

What is your towel made from?

Our towels are made from 85% recycled polyester and 15% nylon.

Why isn't your towel made from 100% recycled material? 

Our dream is to one day develop a fabric that is made from 100% recycled material. As of the moment, we haven't found a fabric with the ideal absorbency and texture when it is made purely from recycled material. If you have any ideas, or would like to work with us, we would love to hear from you.

 

Is your towel non-slip? 

Yogis will be pleased to know that our fabric has moisture-activated grip, perfect for those hot yoga classes. For those who want a bit of extra help, dampening your hands or feet with some water will help you stay grounded.  

 

What about Microplastics?

Microplastics are the byproduct of the deterioration of larger plastic pieces including all man made materials such as wetsuits, swimwear and other synthetic materials. As our towels are made from recycled plastic, there are steps you can take to minimise your microplastic waste when washing our towel. All small steps matter; whether it’s choosing to hand wash over machine wash, or using washing bags that can capture microplastics. We love both Guppyfriend and Cora Ball - companies that help us reduce microplastic waste.
