Turkish Towels

Buy less but better with elegant, multi-use essentials that elevate your every day.

Wrap yourself in the unparalleled softness, lightweight comfort, and the exceptional absorbency of handwoven organic Turkish cotton. Like our renowned ponchos, Starfish & Moss premium Turkish towels offer the perfect combination of comfort and functionality. They are generously sized towels in disguise that dry in a flash (a third of the time as ordinary towels), making them the perfect accessory to stash on the boat, tuck into the beach bag, keep in the campervan, hang in the coat closet, and roll into the wheelie ready for your next escape.

West Coast Collection

Unleash Your Adventurous Spirit

Starfish & Moss's West Coast Collection is a tribute to a special part of New Zealand's South Island that's dear to us, where nature's untamed power and raw allure collide to awaken a sense of exhilaration and vitality. Each design is infused with the essence of exploration and freedom found here in the rugged deserted beaches, nippy blue waters, towering canyons, world-renowned surf spots, and secret waterfalls.

 

Carry the spirit of these awe-inspiring landscapes with you during your own adventures, wherever they may lead you.

WHERE WILL YOUR STARFISH & MOSS
TOWEL PONCHO TAKE YOU NEXT?

“One of my favourite self gifts and most used
purchase of last year!

I LOVE IT! My Starfish & Moss Poncho lives in my car. From surf beaches, to family holidays, work mission or even underground caving, it keeps me warm and cosy while allowing changing in public with ease. I love the tassels as a feature and absolutely love the hoodie pocket to leave keys and mobile phone when at the beach. The beautiful and soft fabric keeps me both warm and stylish. You might not know it yet, but you will want one when you try it!"
