Towels of all shapes and sizes
Towel City’s collection of towels and accessories includes the Luxury Golf Towel in seven colours. It features a silver effect rivet and hook and is a popular promotional gift for golf enthusiasts. The Classic Sports Towel, which has a longer length that allows it to sit comfortably across the shoulders, and the Luxury Gym Towels are equally well suited for branding. The Microfibre Sports Towel is a compact, lightweight and highly absorbent alternative, while for children there is the Babies’ Hooded Towel with contrast binding at the edge. Adult robes and matching slippers are available as well.
Towel City also supplies classic, luxury and Egyptian cotton towels, including face cloths, guest towels and bath sheets in up to 30 colours in the luxury range, and classic colours in the Egyptian cotton and classic range. The towels are ideal for hotels, spas or promotional events.
Bandana bib for babies
New for 2015 from Larkwood, the LW081 Reversible Bandana Bib comes in white/navy, white/red, fuchsia/pale pink, white/pale blue and black/heather grey colourways. “The reversible bib has taken the high street by storm and is seen as a fashionable alternative to the normal bib,” comments the brand. “Perfect for embroidery and a great addition to the Larkwood range, it is an ideal gift or promotional product.”
Belts, beanies and socks
Regatta Professional offers a number of wearable accessories including the Premium Workwear Belt with Stretch, which comes with a trendy looking Regatta Hardwear branded snap-lock buckle. This lightweight and durable belt is made from polypropylene elastane and is guaranteed to be compatible with Regatta workwear trousers. Maximum comfort is provided thanks to the stretch and the fully adjustable buckle allows adjustment to fit most sizes.
The Squarepoint Fleece-Lined Beanie in 100% acrylic carries Regatta Hardwear branding in a subtle grey across the front. There is a loose gathering of material at the back for comfort, and the Thermal Balance Plus microfleece lining provides protection in cold temperatures. The beanie comes in sizes S/M and L/XL.
Regatta also offers a three pack of Hardwear Workwear Socks. These feature a tough loopstitch design, ribbed ankle support, cushioned loopstitch heel and toe, and a flat toe seam for comfort. They come in sizes 6-11 (EU 39-45).
Bespoke scarves and hats
Balmoral Knitwear manufactures scarves and hats that are knitted to order in its Scottish factory, to a club, company or organisation’s own colours. The company also stocks non-bespoke items such as the Pure New Lambswool woven scarf, which has no minimum order.
Balmoral’s Mike Carden says: “Travel companies, tourist shops, heritage organisations, schools and sports clubs all use our scarves and hats. We have even made scarves for films. We can make scarves striped lengthways or across, hats with cables and stripes, and even jacquard patterns.”
Balmoral holds a wide range of yarn shades in stock. For a striped scarf in stock yarn colours the minimum order quantity is usually 24 pieces; for jacquard designs it’s 48.
“The usual lead-time is four to six weeks, so Christmas is still possible as you read this!” adds Mike.
