Beach towels for endless Summer Fun. Lovingly priced.
Summer is fast approaching. The school term and Summer holidays are descending upon us. We are starting to think about (not stress about, I hope) what we need to pack for our holidays. We are also starting to plan on what we need as gifts for family and friends we will be visiting while on holidays. It is a busy time no doubt with all that is going around at school and what alls that need to be done as we prepare to leave for our summer holidays. Spend a few hours with us on Saturday May 19th at these two locations: (1) Hollandse Club (22 Camden Park) and (2) Canadian International School @ Tanjong Katong. Summer Moments will be there with an attractive line up of beach and sports towels; along with a group of fabulous Singapore based brands. Beach towels are an essential for our family's Summer packing list. My boys unpack their towels as soon as we get on the plane and use them as a blanket throughout the flight. We tote our towels with us everywhere we go and use them for every hiking adventure and beach escapades. As for gifts for family and friends, they will certainly appreciate a gorgeous towel that they can use this and future Summers. Add a personal touch by getting their names or initials monogrammed onto the towels. There's still time to select the color and design; stop by any of our events on Saturday May 19th and place your order with us. It will take about 7-10 working days for the embroidery work to be complete. Once they are ready, we will have them dispatched to you via overnight courier delivery service. Easy as that - Summer essentials packing list is complete. Now off to your Summer adventures. We can't wait to hear all about it!

I love these photos captured of these soccer moms on pitch sidelines as they model how they use their Esinti sports towels on a hot humid Saturday morning in Singapore. These sports towels once again show how useful they are. It helps to cool you down when the sun rays are beating down hard against the top of your head or on your bare shoulders. I've seen soccer moms use their Esinti sports towels as a cooling tool as soon as their kids come off the pitch; they dip it in cool water and place it on their son's forehead to cool down their body temperature. Typical of every Turkish towel, the Esinti Sports towel dries quickly; a wet Esinti sports towel can be dried in the sun between matches of 20 minutes. As soon as a game of 20 minutes is complete, the dry towel can be reused to mop up the sweat of the soccer player. Thereafter, the towel can be placed on a seat or on the ground to protect the soccer moms' clothing from getting soiled which cheering on the sidelines.
Esinti Sports towels are sought after by events companies who are hosting sporting events and activities. These towels can be personalized with the event logo or company logo. They make good giveaways as they are light weight and will prove easy for traveling visitors to pack in their suitcase. My clients have found that these towels are well appreciated and well used by all who receive them as giveaways. You will find that these towels can be used in any weather. A few of my customers use them even during the winter months in Canada as hand towels in their bathrooms. Since these towels dry so quickly, it sure beats using a cold damp towel when it's so cold outside! My customers love the wide selection I offer and they add a lovely splash of color to their decor.
This week has been all about customizing towels for events. It started out with an order of 50 towels for a client's mom's 75th birthday party. She wanted everyone to benefit from using the Esinti beach towels and wanted it embroidered with her mom's birthday occasion. Within the next day, I received an order for personalized monogram towels for a girl's birthday party. Two days later, we received an order for 3,000 Esinti Sports towels as a giveaway at an upcoming event. These 3,000 pieces of Esinti Sports turkish towels will have the event logo embroidered on them and presented to every attendee. Turkish towels are a great option as gifts since they would be well received. They would be even more appreciated if these towels have the monogram of the person's name or initials.
How many of us receive corporate gifts that we chuck in the corner when we return to our office? Think about all that waste of money and effort that went into sourcing and preparing that corporate gift. The entire purpose of a corporate branded gift is for the organization to remain top of mind for the target audience. Hence, corporations and event companies struggle to find giveaways and corporate gifts that their valued customers will use again and again. Granted if you provided a very expensive Mont Blanc rollerball pen to your customers, the chances are higher that that pen will be used and not chucked in a corner of their office. How many of us have such big budgets nowadays to expend on corporate branded gifts like these? A branded towel - beach or sports towel is something that fits many budgets and is something that you customers and guests will enjoy using. Hence, you remain top of mind - mission accomplished :-)
I love attending fairs and meeting my customers and users of my products. It is so heartwarming to meet many of my customers who tell me they love using their Turkish towels. I also like to understand how they use them. The Esinti Sports towel often brings out the creativity in many of my customers. Let me tell you how I use them. I have them scattered around the home - bathroom, kitchen and linen closets. In my bathroom, I use them to turban wrap my hair after a shower. It traps all the moisture on my head and I don't even have to towel dry my hair -- saves effort :-) At the same time, I don't have a heavy towel dragging my head down as I go about getting changed and applying make-up. The Esinti Sports towel is so comfortably set as a turban wrap, I often go about the house with it still on hours after my shower - good thing they come in lovely attractive colors! When I finally remove the towel which is slightly damp from all that moisture, I place it on my towel rack, it dries within an hour and I then use it as a hand towel. In the kitchen, I use it to dry my dishes. I remove an Esinti Sports towel from the linen closet each time before I visit the gym. That way, I feel comfortable placing my own towel against my face knowing that it was cleaned well. The Esinti Sports towel is so light, it feels weightless around my neck as I run on the thread mill in the gym. Back to the fairs... here's what others have told me they do with their Esinti Sports towels and why they love it so much.
- Place them in the freezer, take them out after a very sweaty day out and place them around their necks to cool down.
- Wrap them around a cold bottle of wine as it looks great and it absorbs the condensation while you are at a BBQ.
- Personalise them with a company logo or individual names and give them away as door gifts at parties or at company events. (NB: We offer wholesale prices - contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Use them at kids' sports activities to soak up sweat.
- Store in the car for use when the windscreen fogs up.
- Tote around in your bag and use to dry up after getting drenched in a sudden downpour.
- Place over yoga mats.
- Place them over seats that don't look too clean before you sit on them.
Please share all the ways you use the Esinti Sports towels. We would love to hear from you!
It is that time of the year again when our kids are giddy with excitement on the prospect of going away on a school planned trip. The school provides you with a packing list while at the same time warns that the packed bag that the children bring with them needs to be manageable for them to lug around while on the trip. So... they need lots but it all needs to get into a small bag. What an easy task, right? The agony typically starts the night before when we start to help our kids prepare for their trip. Our kids are trembling with excitement while our nerves are fraught with tension and apprehension; we battle with anticipated feelings of missing them and practicality as we guide them into making the right choices in selecting the items to pack for their trip. Now... how do we fit everything in the suitably-sized luggage / carrier for their school trip? One of the items on the list is a towel. Well, that's great information. After all, we understand that our kids will need a towel for their baths which can also double up as a...
(1) sarong for changing out of their swimmers,
(2) pillow if they are sleeping in tents
(3) bed throw over cots
(4) blanket on their journey
A towel is definitely useful. Is there space for one? These illustrations show the thought process that went into packing a towel for my Grade 2's trip to Malaysia. We had space in his carrier for his turkish towel as it was light weight and packed compactly. This super soft and quick dry towel fulfills all the functionalities outlined above and it completed our check list of items to pack. One happy camper off to his school trip with a well packed bag that was easy to tote. He even managed to squeeze in a pack of Uno cards!
P.S. When he returned from his trip, his towel was dry and did not have any sand residue on it. Luckily it looked used or I would have had to check if my son took any showers while he was away!

Road trips can be fun and tiring at the same time. While on our recent travel in Inle Lake, Myanmar, we found ourselves on a 1.5 hour road trip from our hotel to the airport. We were traveling from Heho Airport to Yangon on a morning flight. As a result, we had to leave the airport early in the morning. Our boys were roused from their comfortable hotel beds early in the morning and bundled into the hotel car which would be our transport to the airport. Needless to say, it took a mere five minutes on the road before they found comfortable positions and were fast asleep. The air-conditioning in the Toyota Alphard was blowing hard and it was a little too dusty outside for us to turn off the air-conditioning and wind the windows down. Instead I pulled out my trusty Turkish towel and placed it over my sleeping boys as a blanket. My boys continued to enjoy their slumber during our 1.5 hour ride to Heho Airport.
We continued on our travel from Yangon to Inle Lake. Nile Lake is the second largest lake in Myanmar and located in the township of Taunggyi District of Shan state. We stayed at the Novotel Hotel which is located right on the lake. When we arrived at Inle Lake, it was clouded over with a temperature of 14C. I was forewarned that it would be rather chilly at Inle Lake especially when the boat races across the water. Our Turkish towels came in handy as we started to wrap our necks with our towels to keep ourselves warm and cosy. As Turkish towels are made of 100% cotton, they were comfortable and soft and great as neck warmers. The makeshift neck warmers helped to protect us from the biting wind and we were comfortable enough to truly enjoy the ride as our boat man took us to Indein Pagoda (must see!) and various villages thriving on the lake. The sun emerged during the day and our towels were used as sarong wraps to cover up certain areas of our bodies as we visited the pagodas and monasteries. We decided to stay out on the lake to experience a sunset that Inle Lake is well renowned for. We were not disappointed but rewarded with a gorgeous sunset over the Inle Lake. As soon as the sun went down, the temperature dropped and it started feeling like it was 15C. Lucky for us, we had our Turkish towels and we pulled them out to use as blankets and neck warmers. We had such a fun time at Inle Lake.
We arrived in wet rainy Bagan, Myanmar. Undeterred by the wet weather, we decided to spend a day exploring the pagodas that Bagan is famous for. We hired e-bikes and enlisted the services of a local guide who took us around the area. It was the first time we used e-bikes and realized what fun these vehicles provided. When we returned to the hotel after a great day of e-biking about, we were drenched from the rain and the random splashes sustained on our e-bike adventures... we desperately needed to get out of our wet clothes and take a shower. The first member of our family that was lucky enough to snag the shower emerged only to realize that the bath towels had not been replaced by housekeeping! Luckily each of us travel with our lightweight Turkish towel and were therefore able to pull them out and use them as bath towels. Our next challenge was to pack these wet towels as we were departing early the next morning. Lucky for us, Turkish towels dry quickly even in very humid wet weather and we were therefore able to pack our towels that were dry and crisp for another day's adventure.
It was our first visit o Myanmar as a family. The last time my husband and I visited Yangon was in 1998. What a different city Yangon is now! I was offered a few tips for packing for our trip from friends who had visited previously. One of the best tips I received is that we should definitely bring along a sarong to enter the pagodas as there were strict regulations for not exposing knees or arms when entering the pagodas. This is where our Turkish towels came in really handy. Each member of our family selected their favorite Turkish towel and packed them in our carry-ons and in my case, my tote bag - yes, they are that lightweight!! The towels emerged as soon as we got onto our Singapore Airlines flight to Yangon. They were used as blankets while we enjoyed the inflight entertainment on our 2.5 hour flight to Yangon. Upon arrival at Yangon, we checked into our hotel and were eager to visit the Shwedagon Pagoda. We arrived at the entrance to the Shwedagon Pagoda and the attendant pointed to my son's exposed knees. He was wearing a pair of shorts that did not cover his knees. Out came his Turkish towel which he promptly wrapped around his torso. That saved the day and our family was admitted into the Pagoda. We enjoyed our visit and our first day of adventure in Myanmar.
I am a wife and mother of two lovely boys who keep me on my toes. I love traveling the globe with my family and reading fiction whenever I get a spare moment. I am passionate about my range of peshtemals - Turkish towels and will happily share ideas of how to use these amazingly light weight, absorbent and quick-dry Turkish towels.
