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
Towel dry hair gently and improve its health with Sunrise Bliss organic cotton t-shirt hair towels. Made from knit cotton, not only does this soft, absorbent towel dry hair quickly, but it also leaves you with less breakage, tangles, and frizz, as its texture absorbs water without taking away moisture. This lightweight towel will stay in place and become your perfect partner for your everyday beauty routine.

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. 

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.
