Life, health, happiness, yoga, style, travel, sunshine and endless possibilities…
Every now and again, I like to treat myself with little wellness luxuries; from a beautiful new yoga top, to a delicious fruit & vegetable smoothie at my favourite juice bar or a class at a new boutique fitness studio. My latest little wellness luxuries come all the way from Philadelphia, USA, courtesy of Arete Complete, the home of performance lifestyle towels.
The Arete Complete collection of towels are probably the most beautiful on the market and come in a range of heavenly designs & colours – the towels are decorated with hand drawings inspired by different cultures around the world. Created with a unique microfiber blend of nylon and suede polyester, providing an ultra-soft and luxurious feel, Arete Complete towels are built for athletes and dedicated yogis and are ideal for yoga, hiking, tennis, surfing, camping, rock climbing, all gym and outdoor activities.
I have two towels, the large Green Stripes towel ($60 USD, 72 x 26 inches) and the small Sunset hand towel ($24 USD, 26.5 x 16 inches). I use them mainly during yoga but also for general exercise as they are slip resistant when damp and are highly absorbent, capable of absorbing eight times their weight in water.
The large towel comes handy when I use the communal yoga mats at yoga studios. Its superior grip and comfort give me the ability to go deeper into my yoga poses, and can be used during both temperate and hot yoga classes. It also makes a great travel yoga mat as it rolls up neatly and packs light, taking up minimal space in my suitcase. The smaller hand towel is perfect for mopping up sweat during all types of exercise.
The Arete Complete towels are positively highly functional works of art – combining function, form and design, I always receive compliments when I use them. Check out the rest of the gorgeous collection here.
