Beach Towels

During the beach towel selling season which starts in early March and continues until the 4th of July you will find the best selection at both Kohl's , K Mart and Sears . Usually beach towels are very heavily promoted so if they are not on sale this week, just wait and next week they will be on sale. After the 4th of July all beach products usually go on sale for 50% so the retailer can make room for Back to School inventory. In the off season you should try Designer Linens Outlet or Linens and Things on the web. They usually carry some beach towels year around.

You will put your beach towel on the ground, in the sand, or on the pool deck. It will lay in the sun and fade, get chlorine water on it at the pool and dirt from the beach. Why spend $40.00 for a product that you are going to treat that way when you can buy the product for less that $15.00 on sale?


Embellished Towels

The best selection will be at either the Designer Linens Outlet or Linens and Things on the web. Both of these retailers carry a large assortment of embroidery towels in bath, hand and fingertip sizes. Many times they will also have matching shower curtains and bath accessories to go with them.

To understand the towel industry requires knowledge of :

TAKE A TOUR OF A TOWEL FACTORY

We think the best way to explain how a towel is made is to take a tour of a towel factory, so the next few pages will be a tour of a fictional factory located any where in the world.

But if you want to skip all the details and go straight to the page where we tell you the best towels on the web, then go to our More Shopping page for of the best towels in the US market today.

We will begin our trip with About Cotton , where we will learn about the different types of cotton and cotton blends with unique yarns that when blended with cotton make for excellent towels. We will also learn about how to grade cotton and why one type of cotton cost more than another.

Then we will travel to the spinning factory in the About Yarn Chapter, which prepares the yarns and takes the raw cotton bales and turns them into the fine yarns for the loops of your towels.

Then we will move to the About Weaving chapter where we will discuss the preparation of the the yarns for weaving and the actual weaving process. We will learn about dobby towels and Jacquard towels and how to tell them apart.

From the Weaving factory we will learn About Processing , maybe the most important part of making a towel. There we will learn about the dyeing and finishing processes that gives a towel its softness and feel. We will also discuss the shearing process to make the velour towels you see on the beach. We will learn about the sewing and finishing of the towels and how they make their way to your local retail store.

Finally we will tell you about some of the best towels you can buy from various retail stores and on line in the US in More Shopping Chapter.

I know this will take some time, but when we are finished you will be able to advise your friends everything "About Towels".
