Best towel ever

9/18/2017 by Catherine

I bought this as a gift for our choir director. He directs quite passionately and sweats quite a bit as a result. After he tried this towel in rehearsal, he proclaimed it "the best towel ever!"
It is super light, absorbent, and he says it works great for cleaning his glasses!
Now, I have to get one for myself!

I now have three!

I sweat...A LOT! I keep them in my gym bag, in the car, and at home. Whether I'm working in the garden, at the gym, or to a YouTube workout, I'm ready. Soft, absorbent, and gets softer the more I wash them.More > < Less


Very Utilitarian

6/4/2017 by Ralph

I am glad I took a chance on purchasing this Performance Hand Towel. It's very light and thin, so much so that I actually forget that I have it around my neck at the gym! I sweat a lot, and the towel didn't seem to have any issue with keeping up. Just be mindful that the back side (uncolored) of the towel stains easily (at least with my skin), but this is hardly negative. I am fairly happy with my purchase!More > < Less


Excellent towel - well worth the price!

I bought this as a Valentine's Day gift for my husband. He says it is the best towel he's ever had for mountain biking. I'm buying him a second one for his birthday! Excellent towel; well worth the price!More > < Less

About Arete Complete

Elegant Athletic

Not only are Arete hand towels and yoga towels high performance—it’s evident they’re the brainchild of an artist.

These hand towels and non-slip yoga mat covers absorb up to eight times their weight in water. They don’t feel like your regular cotton towel. The super soft, suede-like fiber feels great and dries quickly.

Maker Paul Moston’s soothing color palette counteracts the harsher, more abrasive tones used in regular sports gear. Paul combined two of his passions to create Arete: a love for tennis and yoga and his art history degree.

He exercised his creative muscles to design subtle textures and hues to be laser-printed on the poly/nylon fabric. This resulted in a Grommet that’s equal parts functional and sophisticated.

Whether you get a glimpse of the beautiful patterns during your downward dog or at the end of long bike ride, these towels add a touch of calm to your workout.
