Cool Stuff: Flatweave Towels at Toast

While everyone else is slobbering all over the clothes in the new Toast catalog, I'm slobbering all over the towels.

The U.K.-based retailer's bath linens this season are mostly flatweave cottons and linens -- so unlike the fluffy terry towels I'm used to, but with an understated elegance that evokes seaside summer cottages and feels deliciously crisp and cool against sun-warmed skin.

They have a practical allure as well: In addition to looking pretty, imagine how little space they'd take up in the linen closet, and how easy one would be to toss in a weekend bag for a quick warm-weather getaway.

Clockwise from top left: Fringed Hammam Towel, £25 (about $36); Hammam Towel, £18 ($26); Stripe Hammam Towel, £25 ($36); Large Khadi Bath Sheet, £35 ($50); and Linen Sauna Towel, £32 ($46)

Check out all of Toast's tasty new offerings right here.
