The BareSkin® Story

This is how it all began…

After spending time living in the Virgin Islands and traveling throughout the Caribbean, I discovered a need for a highly absorbent, packable and fast drying towel.  I tried and discarded the heavy terrycloth towels that retained water and collected sand in the humid climate.  As a result, I researched the concept of utilizing a synthetic chamois as a more efficient utility towel for water sports and recreational activities and that would also provide a travel solution.  Comparative research shows that currently available microfiber towels are light-weight but have limited absorption rates, dry slow and do not offer a plush feel.  I wanted the quick drying element and sand shedding property of a real chamois but without the animal smell or stiffness when dry.  After 6 years of researching fabrics the production of the bare skin towel became a reality.  I am proud to present you with the future towel standard.
