The Swim Linen Towel is a multifunctional piece. A towel, a wrap dress, a sarong style skirt, a big scarf. We also love the idea that this is used for laying out a picnic on, a table cloth, a sunbathing mat.
2020/21 saw Irish people take to the sea in their droves in a bid to exercise mind and body and beat off the covid blues. To mark this, we designed the STABLE swim collection. We wanted to add to the daily swim ritual and create accessories that would feel great, look great and be fit for purpose. We developed a new Irish Linen fabric that does all we hoped for. We worked with Stephen at Emblem Weavers and created a heavyweight textured fabric that has all the properties needed; wonderful absorbency, is naturally anti-microbial, is soft on the skin yet gives a good exfoliation feel, is light to carry, fast drying. We have produced this fabric in 1 colour, a deep indigo blue with a blue-white reverse. With this fabric, we have created a collection of ready to use multi-functional Swim accessories. The hero being the Swim Towel, a waterproof Swim Bag, a Swim Hold All Tote and a Swim Turban to wrap wet hair away.. Linen dries far faster than the classic cotton towel. The towel is lightweight and takes up minimum space. Woven with Huck linen the towel acts as a naturally gentle exfoliation for skin. For us, it surpasses the classic cotton towel in every way, after several trips to the sun it continues to feel as good as new.
Linen's sustainability is great for the planet. It is biodegradable and an all-natural plant fibre from the Flax grass. Flax gives us healthy oils, flowers for the bees and is light on the soil. 100% Irish linen woven and made in Ireland.

I am delighted with my Linen Towel. Just back from Italy where it was great on the beach or on the boat. Absorbent, comfortable and easy to pack, a great bit of kit. Everywhere I use it someone will always ask about it.
The beautiful swim towel is a joy to wear. Light and fast drying when damp and perfect for use as a post swim wrap. Would highly recommend.
I have been buying from Stable for some years now....beautiful baskets, blankets, linen scarves and exquisite hand towels ...and I treasure it all....such a treat to have their textiles in my home. Margie Sullivan Student, artist and writer.
I bought this beautiful bag as a birthday gift for a friend who lives abroad and who spends a lot of time at the beach. I chose it for its wonderful design, practicality as well it being a unique gift from Ireland. Another wonderful Stable product!
It’s perfect for the curls - can only wear natural materials
