Coast to Coast


Published:

Serena and Lily’s Sydney Beach Towel brings a bit of color and flair to the beach, with a jacquard-woven pattern that reverses to a solid white terry back. $68, serenaandlily.com

Summer’s hottest accessory comes into its own with fresh, vibrant beach towels that make a statement.

Folly Beach in South Carolina and Tybee Island in Georgia provided the lush sandy backdrop to our fashion shoot. One of the great joys of living in the South is knowing that a paradise of sea and sand is never more than a short car ride away.

The thread used in Laguna Beach Textile Co.’s Cabana Towels is half the thickness of typical towel thread, and the towel is made with twice the cotton. The result is a luxuriously soft, super-absorbent fashion statement perfect for Katrina’s day at Folly Beach. $39, lagunabeachtextileco.com.

Lily and Madison look good and feel good in this eye-catching tie-dyed Luna Towel from Sand Cloud. The sand-resistant fabric, loomed in Turkey from 100% Turkish cotton, is hand-made for a one-of-a-kind design. Plus, 10% of all sales go to fund marine conservation efforts. $44, sandcloud.com.

Unlike most round beach towels that are screen-printed, the Coral Sunset Round Beach Towel from Laguna Beach Textile Co. are Jacquard woven, so the patterns won’t fade with wash and wear. They’re also made of 600 grams-per-square meter (GSM) of cotton, making them nearly 50% thicker than the average beach towel. lagunabeachtextileco.com.

Manufactured in South Carolina, the 100% cotton Outdoor Voices beach towel provides thickness that never feels stuffy, like the Carolina breeze is woven into every fiber. Seen here in scarlet and white, Madison’s ultra-plush towel is bring enough for her and a friend to spread out on the sand. $50, outdoorvoices.com.

Serena and Lily’s Sydney Beach Towels are loomed from pure Turkish Aegean cotton, making them super soft and woven to be the perfect weight, so it dries quickly and totes easily. Available at the Serena & Lily Atlanta Design Shop or at their website. $68, serenaandlily.com.

Savannah’s own luxury towel brand Weezie lets you take to the beach in style with this oversized (38”x70”) towel, piled deep and cut close so you don’t pick up any extra sand. Seen here in the Blue Water pattern, this 100% cotton towel features hook for easy drying and full customization with embroidery of your choice. $68, weezietowels.com.

Scenes of the South

FACES OF THE SOUTH-THE TRILOGY GALLERY 5

It is a bold declaration of the richness of the South, of the majestic talents, relentless ambition and singular vision that reside just behind each face you pass in your travels. These are the faces of the people who are creating the new South through the sweat of their brow and the depth of their passions. But if you never look closer you may never know how deep that passion goes, and what it has accomplished.
