ONE TOWEL. EVERY ADVENTURE.
From the trails to the gym, your Lava towel is always ready for what's next.
A single piece of synthetic clothing (polyester, lycra, spandex, nylon, rayon) can shed 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 Mini?
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 Mini quick to dry?
Yes, the Lava Mini dries significantly faster than your average bath towel! It also dries twice as fast as microfiber per ounce of water absorbed.
Is the Mini packable?
Absolutely! The Lava Mini rolls to the size of a 12oz glass.
How absorbent is the Mini?
Very! The Lava Mini absorbs up to 9 oz of water and up to 50% more water than microfiber towels of the same size!
Should I expect my Mini to shrink when washed?
Shrinkage will depend largely on how you choose to care for your 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 Mini before I use it?
It's not necessary, however, your Lava towel 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 towel?
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.
