About this project
Traditional cotton towels are bulky, heavy, trap dirt, and take forever to dry. These inconveniences are something that we’ve all dealt with, and this led us to create the ultimate towel.
We couldn’t make any compromises and met each of the following goals:
- Beach towel size
- Dries 3x quicker than cotton
- Absorbs 3x its weight
- Soft & Durable
- Anti-bacterial to eliminate odors
- Super compact with integrated elastic band
- Ultra lightweight
- Uses less water to wash
Inspired by our passion for travel, we created geometric patterns that represent our love for peaceful ocean waves, golden desert sunsets, and breathtaking summits.
EfficientWhatever the situation may be, Acteon towels have you covered. Our microfiber towels dry 3x quicker than the average cotton towel. Microfiber has this ability because it is made with ultra-thin strands that are 10 times thinner than a human hair. Additional benefits of microfiber are that it is super soft, incredibly durable, and uses less water to wash.
Acteon towels are designed to stay fresh even after repeated use. Our towels are treated with silver antimicrobial ions that prevent the growth of bacteria. By prohibiting the growth of bacteria, Acteon towels will maintain their color and remain odor-free. Microfiber adds to this effect because it has natural antibacterial properties that trap less dirt as it dries.
Space is always a premium whether you’re traveling abroad to an exotic destination, or to the local beach. Acteon towels fold easily and quickly into a compact size that is 3x smaller than your average cotton beach towel. Each towel is marked with integrated stitches to guide folding. Once folded, the towel is bound with an elastic band to snuggly keep it in place. The tag attached to the band can be used with a carabiner to connect to a pack while rolled or use it to hang dry. Aside from consuming minimal space, Acteon towels only weigh 8.7 ounces.
The tag can be used as a hanging loop for faster drying
Risks and challenges
Bringing a product from the drawing board to reality is not an easy task. We’ve been fortunate enough to have the funds available to create production ready samples to make sure manufacturing runs smoothly. All that remains is to raise enough money so that we can greenlight the factory and begin production. With that said, there are always unforeseen events that can happen, especially when dealing with a factory that’s half a world away. We wouldn’t bring this to Kickstarter if we weren’t completely confident that we could get our project delivered to backers on schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
