One towel. Every adventure.


Towel FAQs

How do I care for my Lava Towels?
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 our towel material is the more you use your towel, the softer and more supple it will become!

Are Lava towels quick to dry?
Yes! Lava towels dry 14 times faster than your average bath towel! They also dry twice as fast as microfiber per ounce of water absorbed.

Are Lava towels packable?
Absolutely! When rolled, Lava towels pack all the way down to the size of popularly sized water bottles from a 40oz water bottle (Lava Luxe) to a 32oz water bottle (Lava Classic) to a 12oz glass (Lava Mini).

How absorbent are Lava towels?
Very! Lava towels absorb up to 50% more water than microfiber towels of the same size!

Should I expect my Lava towels to shrink when washed?
Shrinkage will depend largely on how you choose to care for your Lava towels. 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 even softer Lava towels!
