Introducing the Travel Poncho
As an avid traveler, it is essential to bring only what you need.
Everyone has made the mistake of bringing too many things and in our case we typically don't bring enough.
After spending lots of time traveling through South America, Mexico, and Indonesia we were inspired to create the best poncho ever.
This lightweight cotton linen drys extremely fast, packs down super small,
water absorbent, and best of all you can walk around freely.
A minimalist wallet at its finestAn item you can never leave home without, your wallet.So many people are victim to hoarding items in their poor wallet.Carrying old business cards (just save their phone number), membership cards you don't need on you at all times, some people even leave their Social Security Card in their wallet!Do yourself a favor and look into your wallet now, how many items in their do you ACTUALLY need on you at all times. This can be difficult at first, but we guarantee the feeling is immensely liberating. Simplify down to 5 of the most important cards, your ID/license, and some cash.
Free your wallet.

Round beach towels originated decades ago in Southern California. Our mission is to inspire the outdoor lifestyle. Slippa has created a new medium for art by using round towels as a blank canvas.The story of the round beach towel all starts in Los Angeles, CA. More than three decades ago, a man by the name of Clemens teamed up with up-and-coming actor Woody Harrelson and screenwriter Bobby Farrelly to sell the first round beach towel. The round towel was born in California, and their purposes are endless. The biggest advantage of our product is for sun tanning. The sun is constantly moving and the sunlight's angle can effect the evenness of your tan. With our towel, you just simply turn your body to face the sun versus moving your entire towel. SLIPPA is an authentic brand, the co-founders Jeff & Eric live a true beach lifestyle. They spend most of their days in the water. Whether it is surfing a local reef, or free diving for lobsters, this brand emerged from true outdoor living. SLIPPA is meant to inspire others to leave their 9-5 life, and never look back.
SLIPPA products are designed in San Diego, CA. Our round towel collection utilizes a special blend of fabric that is extremely soft and absorbent, we use sustainable 400 GSM terry loop cotton. Most beach towels utilize standard 300 GSM cotton, we wanted to improve on the softness so we decided to use a thicker alternative, 400 GSM cotton. In addition, the round beach towels make a great canvas to display design work. Instead of just making really basic prints, we decided to reach out to our artist network. The artists are from all over the world, making each design unique to different locations around the globe. The colors were carefully curated to be more vibrant and fun than other towels. We are beginning to utilize various dyes that are derived from algae to use to print on the towels as well. In order to be sustainable, we wanted to make sure the most chemically harmful process was the most sustainable for our collection. SLIPPA is proud to be using sustainable cotton. Oekotek is the standard cotton we use, which does increase the price of our product however vital to an eco-friendly future. In addition, our towel carriers are made from re-purposed leather salvaged from airplanes in the San Diego International Airport. The straps themselves are hand crafted here in California by local artisan, Antonio. We are launching new accessories and products this upcoming Fall/Winter.
The towels are great for many different uses. So really it is not only a beach towel, but also great for home decor, bath towel, picnic, throw blanket, table cover, rug, and much more! So toss one on your couch, coffee table, and when your ready to hit the beach grab it before you leave! We first started with two designs, and after learning about all of the different uses, we decided to launch ten more! If you are interested in ordering towels as gifts, please go to our contact page.

Recently we have been supplying a lot of towels to destination weddings, so if your getting married at the beach you will want to bring some of our round towels for sure!
