Why a Circle?

The creators of the brand found themselves constantly rotating their traditional rectangular beach towels to achieve the perfect angle towards the sun, resulting in sand blowing everywhere. So they asked themselves, “why isn’t there a circular towel that would put an end to all this preventable moving and shaking?” And then the circular towel was born.
Ancient Greeks believed that the circle was the ideal shape. To them, the circle was a symbol of the marvelous symmetry and balance in nature. Today, the circle is still symbolically important. In religion, yoga and meditation based practices the circle is routinely used to represent harmony and unity.
