1. What is the product made of? The SooBluu is made of microfiber consisting of 80% recycled polyester yarns and 20% polyamide. The polyester yarns are made from recycled plastic, also known as rPET. This plastic waste is collected in China and melted down into polyester yarns through a special production process.
  2. What is REPREVE? SooBluu is Repreve certified, meaning there is actual recycled plastic involved.
  3. What are the washing instructions? We recommend washing our towels (or poncho) at 30 degrees Celsius. Hang to dry, as the towel dries quickly. Definitely do not tumble dry or iron.
  4. Does the towel dry well? Absolutely. These towels absorb much more moisture than a regular towel or beach towel.
  5. Is the towel soft? The towels are surprisingly soft, almost silky. And they feel very smooth and slick. So easy to fold, hardly crease, and the sand slides right off.
  6. Do the colors stay nice? Yes, the printing quality is really top-notch. So you'll enjoy your purchase for years!
  7. What is the weight of the towel? It is indicated in the images. The weight of the 100×160 cm towel is only 340 grams. The XL beach towel of 100x190 cm weighs approximately 400 grams. This is considerably lighter than a standard bath towel or other travel towels (with waffle structure) on the market.
  8. Where is SooBluu made? We work with a small-scale factory in China. This company is managed by a nice Chinese lady. And we have thoroughly investigated whether this company meets all mandatory working conditions. In addition, they have all the required certificates, including REPREVE. Unfortunately, the production of SooBluu is not yet feasible in Europe. The PET bottles are also collected and processed in Asia.
  9. What is the charity? By purchasing the towel, you directly support Local Ocean Conservation. This is a local organization in Kenya for the protection of sea turtles.
