About

The LOLL Shark Poncho Towel  

Final Shark Poncho Towel Designs
Final Shark Poncho Towel Designs

It was suggested by a LOLL lover (Lou) that we do a shark version, as if we did she said she would buy it (hope you have pledged Lou!!)  

To see if a shark version is something that grownups/adults would wear I decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign, if there is the demand then we will make it, if not then we won't - simple!  

Currently all the LOLL towels are made in China, and designed by me (Lara), this Shark one is the same, I already know that our manufacturer can make it, that the original LOLL towels are loved by users, it is just the design - do you want look like your head is in a sharks mouth?

Plus once the Shark LOLLs have been launched 5% of all sales will go to Shark Savers (see further down the page).  The regular RRP will be AU$60/GBP43/USD50 plus postage.

About LOLL

LOLL launched in Australia in 2016, and has quickly become popular with pool and beach goers. The designs so far are fashion orientated, blue and white stripes, green and white zig zags, plain black.

LOLL stands for
Lots
Of
Love
Lara

Below are the green and white zigzag design called Green Ocean Waves

All LOLL Poncho towels are designed with

  • Two internal pockets for your phone, keys, snacks etc - one is zipped to keep your phone sand free
  • Zippers down each side so that you can unzip it and lie it out flat like a towel if you want to sunbathe
  • One size, not need to worry about will it fit, they are spacious and will fit up to a womens size 22, or a mens XL
  • Made from 400gsm toweling that will dry you
  • Easy to change under before or after a swim or surf
  • Will cover your modesty so you can just wander around in just your LOLL and no one will know....

SIZE

Each Shark LOLL will be 105cm long and 80cm wide - this is slightly wider than our current LOLLs by 10cm, as I suspect that these will be bought by guys, but I am open to feedback.

The front and the back of the LOLL are the same length, previously the back was longer, but consumer feedback said that they wanted the front longer too to cover knees!

Support Sharks

When these shark LOLLs go on sale to the public (i.e. after this Kickstarter campaign) 5% from every sale will be donated to Shark Savers to help protect them from becoming endangered due to overfishing because of the demand for shark fins.  

The charitable donations will be on sales after this campaign due to the fact that Kickstarter takes 5% of all funds raised on the campaign.

Risks and challenges

There are no/minimal risks in this project going ahead if we get backing because:
- We know we can make the poncho
- We know people like the poncho towel concept from previous LOLL poncho towel sales
- We know we can ship globally easily
