HOW IT ALL BEGAN
On a beautiful summer day while on my favorite local beach, I read a beauty tip in a magazine that would end up inspiring me to start this new business venture with my husband Christian.  The tip was to use a soft cotton t-shirt to towel dry hair gently.  While listening to the waves and getting lost in my thoughts (a rare occurrence for this mom of two), I thought, "Why don't I make a hair towel with t-shirt material?" And so the Sunrise Bliss towel was born. I couldn't think of a better birthplace than a beautiful sandy beach, could you? 

YOUR HAIR DESERVES ITS OWN TOWEL
Sunrise Bliss is a line of t-shirt hair towels made with organic cotton designed to towel dry hair gently while improving its health.  The soft, smooth, and absorbent fabric reduces breakage, frizz, tangles, and dry time.  The knit cotton is the perfect texture to absorb water without taking moisture out of your hair. Plus it is lightweight and stays in place while you continue with your getting-ready routine.

The need for excessive hair products is reduced because of all the benefits of our t-shirt hair towel. Just one simple switch in your routine and you will notice dramatic results.

If your hair is wrapped in our Sunrise Bliss towel for an extended amount of time while multi-tasking, hair is still manageable when you remove the towel.

Sunrise Bliss t-shirt hair towels are offered in limited editions of colorful prints to make it fresh and fun!  One of our favorite parts of running Lakeshore Dry Goods is picking out the new prints and thread colors that "pop".

Three sizes are offered to accommodate various hair lengths, head sizes, and preferred wrap styles.  But don't worry, wrapping is not complicated!  That's why we kept the design so simple.

We choose GOTS-certified organic cotton.  This certification means every part of the supply chain was inspected, so it is good for the environment and its handlers and results in a high-quality and pure product.

We use interlock knit cotton so it won't stretch out of shape or curl at the edges.  This type of fabric is used for high-end t-shirts and baby layette items.

For a professional finished look, and because my husband and I are busy raising two young and active boys, we outsource to an ethical cut & sew manufacturer located in the U.S.A.

Other uses include fitness, travel, and camping.  Also, cancer patients going through chemo have found it to be gentle on their body when experiencing skin sensitivity and gentle on their hair as it grows back.
