I moved to Tofino just over a month ago and one of my first purchases here was my The Rosie Tofino Towel. I was having a hard time deciding between a few of the towel designs but I settled on the beautiful pale pink and grey pattern. This towel was inspired by secluded shoreline adventures with sea caves and endless tidal pools to explore and named after Rosie Bay in Tofino, BC.
Tofino Towel Co. are the originators of the Canadian West Coast round towel design. Made here on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, this towel couldn't be anymore inspired then island life than this. The company was inspired by slowing down, taking in nature and enjoying the simpler things in life. Named for the relaxing town of Tofino, where there is no better place to escape reality than on the beaches of the West Coast. The idea for the shape and size of the towel came from the frustration of going to the beach for the day with a regular rectangular towel that you consistently have to readjust, as to not be covered in sand by the end of your beach day.
I wasn't only excited about this towel for future beach days here on the beautiful West Coast of Vancouver Island, but also to use it as a home decor item. It is not only a typical towel, but the perfect throw for over a couch or on the end of your bed. Even a room accent, which you can hang on the wall if you wish to. I kept mine beautifully wrapped up on a desk for a few weeks because I couldn't bring myself to unwrap it. However, once the sun came out this past Friday I had to take it to the beach to do a shoot. The towels are available online at www.tofinotowelco.com or if you find yourself in Tofino head to the cute boutique SALT, 411 Campbell St. to pick your Tofino Towel in person.
