SORA is changing the towel game once and for all.

From reusable cutlery to slow fashion, there are endless ways to live life a little more sustainably these days. And now thanks to SORA, even towels are no exception. Combining insta-worthy style with an eco-driven business philosophy, this chic new Hong Kong-based brand makes use of recycled post-consumer plastic to create the towel of dreams. Consisting of 85% recycled materials, each towel is made from eight plastic bottles and comes in an exclusive array of prints designed by a selection of exciting new female artists. Absorbent, non-slip and sand repellent, SORA’s towels are multi-purpose in the fullest sense whilst remaining lightweight, compact and travel-friendly. They’ll easily see you through both lazy beach days and power yoga sessions alike, making them a Hong Kong living essential.

With four collections to its name, SORA will have you spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a design. Take your pick from floral-inspired “The Botanicals”, created in collaboration with Filipino artist Mercedes Olondriz, or “Sirkel”, a gorgeously abstract print series designed by London-based artist Kit Agar. There’s also “Flow”, inspired by the female form, as well as SORA’s latest collection, “Venice”, which takes its cue from all things Palm Springs and mid-century architecture. Good luck picking just the one!
