Rachel Castle Adds Luscious Bath Towels To Her Kingdom Of Colourful Homewares!

Shopping

When it comes to the the queen of sunshine and her kingdom of colourful homewares, there are few stones left unturned. But that’s about to change!

With her debut range of luxurious, fluffy bath towels, Rachel Castle has found the perfect balance between proper grown-up quality, and unexpected, playful fun. Sorry, sausage dog not included!

‘We wanted to create a range that we can add to easily, that customers can build over time in a collection of different colours.’ – Rachel Castle

When Rachel Castle thinks of bath towels, they remind her of home.

‘Think about going to your Mum’s house for a sleepover and the towels are all big and fluffy and perfectly folded,’ she describes. ‘They’re always so fluffed up, like PROPER adult grown-up towels.’

The designer’s new Bon Bon range of patterned bathroom textiles combines this luxurious, pillowy vision of adulthood with a fun and vibrant twist. The four-piece collection includes two scalloped bath towels, a bath mat and a fringed bath towel. The latter Nuddy towel is designed for kids, and it comes complete with a classic Rachel slogan emblazoned across the bottom (no pun intended)!

Each weave is hand-loomed from 100% cotton and features a two-tone colour scheme. The simple scalloped towel comes in a shock of Raspberry pink or a more muted Toffee brown and teal, while the Nuddy towel paints its crimson slogan across a rectangle of dusty blue. Each design contains its inverse colour scheme on the reverse side.

Rachel explains that splitting the design across the centre and opting for a pared-back, two-tone colour combo is a calculated display move. ‘The scallop sits neatly on both sides at the top when draped on a rail, and the colours split into two tones when hung from a hook,’ she say, so they’ll look fabulous whatever your bathroom storage situation!

The campaign was shot by Lauren Bamford and styled by Stephanie Stamatis. Shoutout to Delly the honey-hued mini sausage dog for her outrageously cute modelling work!

Keen for some Bon Bon towels to brighten up your bathroom? Shop the range here! Sausage dog not included.
