Sublingual Beach Towel by Anna Mills
Imagine a wordless water language that embodies the unmatched feeling of diving head first into cold, fresh water.
We collaborated with UK-based designer and illustrator Anna Mills on this cozy jacquard-loomed beach towel that will keep you speaking to the water even when you’re drying off in the sun.
Made in the USA of super soft and durable cotton. Extra large beach towel size at 34” x 60”
Wordless Water Language
We love our collaborator Anna Mills' description of her artwork:
“In designing this towel I decided I wanted to create a sort of wordless water language that embodied that unmatched feeling of diving head first into cold, fresh water. I drew up sinuous interlocking lines that reminded me of water lapping at my face and droplets running down my arms. I like looking at this design as a kind of abstract musical notation for the soundscape of swimming.”
Anna Mills is a Bristol (UK) based graphic designer whose work mainly focuses on energetic and illustrative letterforms which tend to jump around the page or take on other human qualities.

Jacquard loomed in the USA
The soft and absorbent loops of cotton in these towels are crafted on Jacquard looms at a family-run business in Illinois. Jacquard looming results in a mirror image on the reverse side of each towel.
Care: Wash warm and tumble dry with items without zippers, buttons, or anything that could snag the loops. Use biodegradable detergent to keep our waterways healthy.
