Jacky and I have traveled all over the world. There is nothing we love more than getting a backpack and hitting the road. But one particular hike in the Royal National Park here in Sydney changed our lives. After carrying our heavy beach towels the entire day hiking through the forest (we call it "the bush" here in Australia) we finally reached the beach.
We had a wonderful swim and it was time to head back. But now we had a problem. The towel was wet, heavy and we couldn't shake the sand off. It took up all the space in our bags. By the time we got home it smelt horrible. We thought there must be a better towel than this.
We spent the next year developing Tesalate. We created over 100 prototypes before we made something we were proud of. We launched in a small stall in Bondi Markets. From those humble beginnings, we now have customers all over the world. We believe small details matter, and we have strived to make every element of Tesalate towels well balanced and design focused.
We hope you like Tesalate as much as we've loved making it.
