Long story short, but STOKEDNZ was founded after recovering from a brain injury (if you haven't had one, it's a shit time!). STOKED is a word I generally use to describe my state of happiness. And I was stoked I was still alive, had a second chance etc etc.
Also after I handed in my final university paper I bought a 1 one ticket to Canada with no job, no money, no worries. I landed in RevelSTOKE and maybe had the best year of my life snowboarding evvvvveryday and riding my bike... Until my visa ran out.
And NZ - well that's kinda self explanatory.
There you go mates, that's my life story and we are basically besties now riiight?
STOKEDNZ is all about people and places.... So much so I've named our Towelies and throws after them!
Our Towelies are named after people that have inspired me in my life. Each one has a wee description describing their personality. Is there a Towelie that resonates with you?
Our Throws are named after some of my favourite places to travel. I want you to be able to take a slice of holiday paradise like "Byron Bay" or "Lake Okareka" home with you.
Great question pal!
So, a few things you need to decide:
1) Which size Towelie you want (do you wanna change in it / just throw it on over togs / how baggy do you want it etc). Sizing info can be foundhere. If your question isn't answered, just shoot me an emailhere. I am so happy to help. I'm constantly trying to make this as easy as possible, so chances are if you are asking a question, others want to ask it too.
2) What weight Towelie do you want?
We have 2 different fabric weights of Towelies and you can filter by these on the Towelie page.
Lightweight - This is our super lightweight / quick drying 100% Turkish Cotton Towelie. It packs up tiny and is epic for travel.
- quick drying
- good for travel
- folds up tiny
- keeps the sun off
- lightweight and not too hot.
- Not as warm as the other Towelies.
Warmest -The thickest, warmest Towelie we make. Perfect for that person that is always cold, on the boat or throwing on after a spa / hot pools to walk / drive home in.
- Super warm 500 GSM Terry Lined Towelie. (Terry lined = fluffy and warm on the inside, but sand / sticks / grass etc won't stick to the outside, handy huh?).
- Really, really absorbent and feels more like a "traditional" towel.
- Takes longer to dry
- Takes up more space than our light and mid weight Towelies.

Yes! Our STOKEDNZ towels and Towelies can hold up to 3 times their weight in water.
They have been used for yeeeears at Turkish Hamams.
Hamams are an important part of the Turkish culture.
This bathing style takes place in a marble covered, sauna type room, the best wash of your life and then an oil massage. In Hamams they give you Turkish cotton towels (made from the same stuff as our Towelies).
Because I (Debs) honestly think it is the best! It is very very absorbent, packs up to basically nothing and drys so fast! Which is exactly what I was after when making my very first Towelie samples.
I have some Turkish Cotton Towels from 10 years ago and they still look and wash up like new!
I've been known to use my towels as a scarf, picnic blanket, throw on the couch, sarong, and obviously anywhere you need a towel!
Nope, because our Towelies are so lightweight, they are more energy efficient than a traditional terry towel as they don't need washing as often and don't need to go in a dryer.
MANUFACTURING & PRODUCT CARE
Yes! All of our Towelies, throws, bathrobes etc are loomed in Turkey by two epic families!
I personally go visit the families and factories each year. Share cups of tea, delicious meals and work on our new ranges. Everything is also Okeo-Tex certified.
You can read more about our ethics manifestohere.
Epic! Everyone is stoked, good meal breaks, allll of the tea breaks and a happy atmosphere!
And abviously paid fairly and treated with respect.
