Sand between your toes and salty beach hair. Long summer days which turn effortlessly into night. The mercury only slightly dropping as you order your favourite summer cocktail and let the night take you wherever it pleases. Summer is just around the corner and we can hear the beach calling our names.
In the time of coronavirus we have to take silver linings wherever we can find them. For me, the shift to alfresco dining, and the resurgence of picnics is by far my favourite one of them. Something about fresh air and the seemingly spontaneous notion of a picnic inspires a sense of nostalgia that I am absolutely ready to embrace this summer. My biggest problem now? Finding the perfect beach blanket.
Turns out SOLAQUA founder Jessica Cognetta had the same problem. Whilst packing for an Italian holiday she decided she wanted a light-weight towel in a muted palette that would last the European Summer and beyond. Discovering there was nothing on the Australian market she liked, she decided to design her own. Today, SOLAQUA blends style and sustainability to create 100% certified cotton and linen towels, hand loomed by traditional artisans in Kayseri, Turkey. And we want to give one lucky reader the chance to own the ultimate SOLAQUA essentials for themselves.
To enter simply tell us in 25 words or less why you should win a SOLAQUA beach essentials pack. The prize include 1 x beach blanket and 2 x beach towels, as well as a SOLAQUA Linen Tote to get them there. Competition closes December 31. Terms and conditions apply.
From their inception, SOLAQUA was more than just a towel company. With a focus on being ethical and environmentally conscious, they are also an entirely female-owned and operated label. Each piece is a work of art, hand-loomed by third-generation skilled artisans from Turkey, on a vintage loom from the 1960s.
From products to packaging, they are also 100% plastic-free. Their cotton is sustainably sourced and 100% organic, and all SOLAQUA boxes are constructed using sustainably sourced paper, from certified plantations.
Perfect for the Australian beaches, lounging by your pool, or in your home, their towels are designed to be light weight, fast drying and multi functional. The perfect Australian summer essentials.
