Dancetowels are changing the way we dancers see and feel about towels.

Why is it, that so many dancers feel the need to hide the towels they bring to their dances?

Wouldn't it be great if everybody brought a towel?

Can a towel show your personality, your style, your care for yourself, for others and for the scene?

We developed our BJ Dance Towels from our own experience as dancers and musicians in late night ballrooms, heated jam circles and sun filled pavilions,  on light filled stages and amidst the crowd.

We wanted a towel that would dry fast and match our elegant evening outfit. A highly practical accessory that we wouldn't have to hide, but would be proud to show and inspire others to bring one, too. We wanted it to be useful and pretty. 

Thats why we created the BJ Dance Towels, so you can swing and sweat in style.

Design inspired by the Savoy Ballroom

Created with Sketch.

The Savoy Ballroom in NYC was the birthplace of the Lindy Hop, a non-discrimatory ballroom, sanctuary and mouthpiece for black and international culture. In the project  "Welcome to the Savoy" Sharon Davis works hard to digitally recreate this magnificent place so she sent us rough pictures of the  amazing art deco pattern of the carpet of the Savoy. 

It took us and  Gosia Aniolkovska weeks to properly recreate this pattern from the pictures but we made it! 

Wearing this is like carrying a piece of "The Worlds Fines Ballroom" with you.

30 x 120, the perfect size

Created with Sketch.

The Dancetowels are 30cmx120cm. 

That's the size of the original scarves of the so called "Swing Kids", a German swing loving anti Nazi movement of the 1930ies. We found that to be the perfect size for the BJ Dance Towels as well. Not only because this size honours those that came before us, but also because it's very practical. 

  • Use different sections of the Dancetowel to dry your head
  • Hang it over a chair to dry while you rock your socks off, without having to fear that it might fall down. 
  • Take it with you from one room to the other, having it elegantly around your shoulders or neck.
  • Protect your neck from the cold when taking a quick breath outside
  • Warm your neck from the wind, snow and cold when going home after the party

Recycled Material

Created with Sketch.

We Lindy Hoppers dress vintage and think progressively. So for us it was important to reduce the waste in this world and leave it a better place. BJ Dance Towels are made from recycled plastics. That makes their production way more costly, but we believe it's worth it, and we hope you do, too.

Antibacterial

Created with Sketch.

Microfiber is very different from other fibers. If you cut off a cotton fibre and look at it from above, it will be a circular shape. Microfiber has a star shape with up to 12 points, so it forms many pockets along the whole fiber. The microfiber pockets of our BJ Dance Towels are designed in such a way that bacteria is captured within them.

It was very important for us to be able to make them washable at 60°C (30°C is the standard for microfiber) so that bacteria gets eradicated during the washing. So even though you might have had bad experiences with smelly polyester clothing, the secret why the Dancetowels will never be smelly is because you can kill the bacteria captured within the pores by washing them at 60°C which is impossible with many other polyester products and microfiber towels.

Fast drying

Created with Sketch.

In Lindy-Hop you usually dance 1-3 songs with the same partner (depending on the region you are in, it's two in Germany). So we created a towel that dries within a few songs. We won't promise that it's dry after 3 songs, but it definitely dries really fast. Look at our test

Premium present box included

Created with Sketch.

If you give someone a present, the outside matters! Every part of the Dancetowels is pure swing. Even the box in which it comes. It ist designed in the style of the black and white film title captions, that you see in movies of Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton. It has a magnetic lid and you will find four dance couples on it and if you look really close, you can find out who they are. It's a great fun challenge for a party, too.
