Sandy towels can sour even the best beach days. At the end of a great summer day your towel needs to go somewhere, whether it's back into your bag or your car. And that sand gets EVERYWHERE.
This is a problem we know intimately at Evolve, and have dedicated ourselves to solving. Our proprietary towel fabric is designed with a unique weave that keeps the sand from catching in the fibers. Because of this innovation, you can leave the sand at the beach where it belongs!
Simply give your towel a quick shake and the sand will slide straight off. Even wet sand! Now you can pack your towel without packing half the beach, giving you the freedom to hit the sand whenever you get the chance without having to worry about cleaning up afterwards.
Towels made of cotton are designed to dry you, but they're not very good at drying themselves. That's because the cotton fibers don't do a great job at exposing the water to the air allowing for evaporation. The end result is a towel that slows you down, because you have to wait hours for them to dry.
We designed our sustainable, sand free towels with a proprietary weave that creates greater surface area, leading to faster evaporation and rapid drying times. If you zoom in, you might be able to see the "waffle" texture on our towels that we use to create that extra surface area. Our towels are still ultra absorbent (they're able to absorb more than a liter of water at once), but they also release that water into the atmosphere quickly.
Not wanting to stop there, we added a designated drying side made with a dark pigment engineered to absorb a greater percentage of the suns rays. This extra solar energy means more heat energy is available to evaporate water, leading to even faster drying times!
Plenty of brands pay lip service to sustainability, but we're built on it. Evolve was founded by a high school environmental science teacher who wanted to show his students that it was possible for businessees to be both successful and eco friendly.
All of our products are made using sustainable materials, and our towels are no exception. Each towel keeps 20 plastic bottles out of landfill and waterways. We also donate 10% of all profits to charities like the World Wildlife Fund, Panthera and Oceana, and we offset all of the carbon emissions we can't further reduce.
This all means you can smile extra wide when you tear open that package from us in the mail - because you're helping us make a positive impact and lead by example.
Do you have space in your bag for a burrito? Because if you do, then you have space for your Evolve towel. Our towels are designed for adventure, which was why they pack light, dry fast and are easy to care for.
If you've ever been frustrated by sandy, soggy towels that slow you down when you're on the road, then it's time to bring your towel game into the 21st century. Whether it's a beach trip, swim meet or backpacking across the globe, your Evolve towel will be ready to handle whatever you throw at it - and look good doing it!
Because you deserve a towel that will keep up with your lifestyle, not dampen it.
Made from our revolutionary Ecolite™ microfiber, each towel contains an estimated 20 plastic bottles that have been recycled into our butter soft fabric. By using recycled PET, you are creating a demand for plastic waste that keeps it out of landfill and our oceans. Alongside this positive impact, we donate 10% of our profits to charity. Each towel you purchase is helping us to save the wild.
A quick shake and the sand falls straight off - even when it's wet! Our revolutionary technology makes these towels sand repellent. Now you can leave the sand where you found it; at the beach.
Evolve towels have a designated drying side with our trademark dark pigment print that maximises the sun's power for drying. Our Ecolite™ Microfiber also has a unique texture for maximum evaporation, making our towels dry so fast you won't believe it.
These full sized beach towels fold up to the size of a large burrito. No longer do you have to worry about bulky towels taking up all of the room in your luggage or beach bag. Your towel fits into a small bag, with plenty of room left over for you other essentials.
We've worked hard to make this towel have incredible performance when you need it. Our towels can absorb over a litre of water if necessary! You'll be dry in a hurry, thanks to this high tech beauty.
Remember that gross smell your old cotton towel gets if you don't wash it after a day at the pool or beach? Our towels don't do that! The naturally anti-microbial properties of our Ecolite™ Microfiber means they can go longer between washes, without accumulating bacteria and mildew. No more smelly towels? Now that's a cause we can get behind!
Our towels are designed to be as stylish as they are functional. We've paired our high-tech fabric with vibrant prints that will add to your adventure, whatever it is. Each towel is double sided, with a travel inspired print on the front and our unique quick dry print on the back.
Big things come in small packages. Our towels are full sized at 160cm x 80cm / 63 x 31 inches, yet they pack up to be tiny when you're not using them. They're big enough to lie out on the beach and wrap yourself in, without taking up all the room in your bag. We think they're the perfect size, why not try them for yourself?

Such a Joy to Use
Lives up to every expectation. Doesn’t trap sand (even when wet), absorbent, dries very quickly. Feels like a normal towel + chamois combined. I always look forward to using it because of the bright colors and nice pattern that doesn’t look appropriative, unlike some of the other sand-free towels out there...

This is the best beach towel I've ever used. I can't believe how well it worked. No sand stuck to it at all even when wet, it also dried very quickly and never had that wet towel smell. It far exceeded my expectations! It has made my vacation even more pleasant, definitely worth the money. Also I love the design and color. Truly an outstanding product.
