ONE TOWEL. EVERY ADVENTURE.
A single piece of synthetic clothing (polyester, lycra spandex, nylon, rayon) can produce more than 1900 microplastic 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 our clothing. 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 + Mini Duo?
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 + Mini Duo quick to dry?
Yes, the Lava Classic + Mini Duo dries significantly faster than your average bath towels! The Duo also dries twice as fast as microfiber per ounce of water absorbed.
Is the Classic + Mini Duo packable?
Absolutely! The Lava Mini rolls to the size of a 12oz glass. The Lava Classic rolls to the size of a 32oz water bottle.
How absorbent is the Classic + Mini Duo?
Very absorbent! The Lava Classic + Mini Duo absorbs up to 31oz of water and up to 50% more water than microfiber towels of the same size!
Should I expect my Classic + Mini towels to shrink when washed?Shrinkage will depend largely on how you choose to care for your Classic + Mini Duo.
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 + Mini towels before I use them?
It's not necessary. However, your Lava towels will be more absorbent after the first wash.
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.
What are these fuzzy spots and variations in the weave of my towels?
One of the most prized qualities of linen is the way it reflects nature – perfectly imperfect. Unlike manmade fibers and cellulose fibers like cotton, linen fibers meander from thick to thin with nubs and slubs throughout the textile. The variation enhances the texture and does not affect the integrity of the material.
We look over our linen prior to crafting our towels and after every towel is created to assure there are no variations beyond what is considered natural for linen fiber textiles.
