SHOP SMALL. MAKE AN IMPACT.
A single piece of synthetic clothing (polyester, lycra, spandex, nylon, rayon) can produce more than 1900 fibers every time it's washed.
"This fact suggests that a large proportion of microplastic fibers found in the marine environment may be derived from sewage as a consequence of washing of clothes. As the human population grows and people use more synthetic textiles, contamination of habitats and animals by microplastic is likely to increase."

How do I care for my Classic?
It’s simple! Machine or hand wash in water up to 60 degrees with a gentle to medium spin. Tumble dry on low to medium heat.
One of the greatest things about linen is the more you use it the softer and more supple it will become!
Is the Classic quick to dry?
Yes, the Lava Classic dries 14 times faster than your average bath towel! It also dries twice as fast as microfiber per ounce of water absorbed.
How absorbent is the Classic?
Very! The Lava Classic absorbs up to 22oz of water and up to 50% more water than microfiber towels of the same size!
Is the Classic packable?
Absolutely! The Lava Classic rolls to the size of a 32oz water bottle.
Will my Classic shrink when washed?
Shrinkage will depend largely on how you choose to care for the Mini. Washing in cold water and drying at a low temperature will nearly eliminate shrinking entirely. Washing in warmer water and drying on medium heat* will result in some shrinkage, up to 1-2 inches.
Drying on medium heat will result in an even softer towel.
Do I need to wash my Classic before I use it?
Nope! Your Lava Classic will be ready to use right out of the box. Some people prefer to wash their Lava towels prior to use to further soften the linen and to accomplish the “rumpled” look that is only achieved with premium quality linen.
