The idea for Eiffel Towel started in early 2012. My 1 year old niece Bea was dealing with eczema flare ups. Eczema sucks! For those that have never dealt with this skin irritation, imagine a bunch of little mosquitos bites all over you. You’re not supposed to scratch them, but you do. Then after a few days, the blisters start to go away, but you still itch. Then the skin dries up and you itch again. If you’re lucky, you didn’t permanently scar your skin. It’s horrible!
Bea’s doctors couldn’t figure out the cause, but we believed it was triggered from several things: using different clothing materials, eating different foods, going through different seasons, experiencing different weather types (humid, damp, cool, etc.), different shampoos, different soaps, different detergents and coming into close contact with different animals. Basically she was doing what any other toddler does.
While I knew I couldn’t cure eczema or change the way a toddler naturally acts, I knew I could at least try to ease the irritation and eliminate different factors that were being exposed to her especially right after her bath. Since our original launch of the Eiffel Towel, it has appealed to our many customers beyond its original intent to ease my niece's eczema irritations.
The Eiffel Towel is different than your normal towel:
- It was made with infants, toddlers, children (and now pets) in mind, but we didn’t forget all those that are kids at heart. It's soft, breathable and hypoallergenic.
- It’s made from TENCEL™ and Organic Cotton and we make the towels through a planet-safe manufacturing process.
- It’s one of the most eco-friendly towels available. We have 1 planet and we shouldn't waste it.
We hope you enjoy your Eiffel Towel. It's made with love from a whole team of people around the world.
