The Traveller is made of terry towel on grey soft micro fleece and includes a pocket

The Sport Basic is made of quick-dry polyester making it lighter and easier to pack than cotton towels.

The Hybrid Basic is a full polyester combination. Half warm micro fleece like the Traveller and half quick dry of the Sport.

The Chawel LX series (Sport & Hybrid) include a zip up pocket that can also be stuffed within itself, and have the Chawelers Choice armhole seam. To open the armholes, just snip the threads in the seam between the horizontal stitches along the side toward the head hole.

The NEW Chawel HD series is all that the LX is, with the added extra of a HooD

What is the Chawelers Choice Armholes?

In short, the armhole option is a single stitch seam that is easy to open if you wish to have them open. See the easy how to video on the LX series.

Zippers and velcro were not options that we liked. We feel this is a great solution for those who want their arms free to change.

The Sport models are double sided quick-dry polyester.

The Hybrid models are 100% polyester combination of micro-fleece and quick dry.

How do I wash my Chawel?

Wash in cold water with regular detergent. Avoid bleach and heavy detergents. Hang to dry.

Don’t use bleach, dryer sheets or fabric softener. Rewash if you use a dryer sheet or fabric softener.

Can I Screen Print on Chawels?

Keep in mind when designing your print that screen printing will block the moisture absorption reducing the fabric’s effectiveness as a towel. If you want to screen print, use water-based inks if possible and print only small areas and open space.

We screen print on the Chawel carry bag, showing that it can be done. We can also do special orders starting at minimums of 100 pieces, as set up charges are the most expensive part of the printing process.

If you have your own printer with screens already made, that would be your best money saving option.

Contact us HERE if you have anymore questions.
