In Puerto Rico, where beaches and nature rule, a good towel is essential. While searching for the perfect beach towel, I had the fortune of meeting Adalberto Torres, the owner, and designer of LaidBack, a company dedicated to creating beach towels inspired by the culture and beauty of Puerto Rico.
These towels are like no other I've tried—they're soft, vibrant, and magically repel sand. But I'm not just a fan of the towels, I am a supporter of what the LaidBack brand stands for. What I love most is their mindfulness around community and the environment.
Adalberto keeps production local, thereby supporting the local economy. They are an eco-friendly company that uses recycled plastic waste certified by the Global Recycled Standard and a sublimation printing process that is waste-free and ensures eye-popping colors that won't fade.
Here's the fun part: each towel is made from 14 recycled plastic bottles! They're transformed into yarn through a process involving cleaning, melting, and shaping. The result? A towel that's quick-drying, super absorbent, and sand resistant—perfect for beach adventures!
My closet is stocked up with LaidBack towels and ready to rock for the summer! So, whether you need a practical gift or want to up your beach towel game, LaidBack is a sure winner (and they ship worldwide). They're the epitome of style and functionality, making drying off a fabulous experience!
