"Legends of Swing" 3-Pack
These dance towels are pure elegance in black and white, a true testimony to the people behind the music and they look just awesome!
This series of three 30x30 cm microfiber Dance Towels, is inspired by the hand created lynocuts from Gosia herself. They are true works of art.
If you don't know who the musicians displayed here are, put your hands together for: Django Reinhardt on the guitarr, Count Basie on the piano and Lester Young on the saxophone.
You will be very happy to have three because they are smaller than the 120x30 scarf sized Dance Towels so you don't have that much surface to use and you will want a fresh one after a while of dancing.
And one day you might feel more Count Basie, one day you might feel more Django Reinhardt.
Why 30cm x 30cm?
30x30 is just the perfect size to put it into your pocket. Some of the modern and some of the old time Lindy Hop dancers like to let their towels hang out of their back pocket as a style element.
How long does it take to embroider?
We are doing the embroidery in our living room, so we will finish your personalisation the same day you order it. (Unless one of the kids falls onto the machine while playing hide and seek.) So we can send out your Dance Towel the next workday just like any other order.
This colour is the ultimate form of elegant understatement. It perfectly matches the colors that are already within the Dancetowels, but still pops. The thread is made from 100% viscose which gives the embroidery a nice shine and thus lifts it up from the rest of the towel.
This color is not about bragging, its a gentle appreciation.
This color is what's closest to real gold. It has a very nice shine to it and really stands out from any Dance Towel pattern. A name embroidered in this color is clearly visible but never overpowering due to it being gold and not yellow.
It's an amazing color and I personally come to like this one more and more.
Vintage Silver, Off-White, eggshell, vintage white ... all these names apply to this great color. Some would call it it white, but it's not laundry detergent commercial white. Basically it's silver, but not the blueish vampire slaying kind, but more the real vintage silver necklace kind with a slight hint of yellow and green which makes it tie in so perfectly to the timeless elegance of the Dance Towels.
Embroidery Position and Orientation
By default we will put the embroidery diagonally in the bottom left corner of the Dance Towel. That's where we found it to look the best.
If you want any other position, just add it to the form.
We will generally not embroider on the frame of the Dance Towel, because that will warp the fabric too much to look good.
Embroidery Sizes and Amount of Characters
By default we will use size M for most embroidery projects.
You can see the real size in the comparison picture with the 1€ coin.
If you want us to embroider anything that it longer than 10 characters, we will switch to size S or a combination of M and S because that's what looks best.
For longer names like "Benedikt Jockenhöfer" we recommend using a short form like B. Jockenhöfer.
All stitching is done by ourselves in our living room in the center of Germany. Each name, each letter is set up by hand and carefully stitched into the the Dancetowel without using a stabiliser. This delicate process ensures that there is no additional waste generated and that there is no stabiliser residue on the back side of the Dancetowel.
After all of that we go in by hand with some scissors and remove the so called "jump stitches". So this is real handmade.
It is overall possible for us to embroider other designs like dance schoo logos or band logos onto the Dance Towels, too, but if you want something like that please contact us beforehand since we would have to have an embroidery file created first, which also comes with additional costs.
Ultimately: Bringing a towel to your dances is something you do out of care for your dance partners and hundreds of dancers and musicians across the world have already joined this movement.
