Windbreaks for the Beach

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!  So goes the oft-sung ditty as families on the great British Bank Holiday get into the car and set off for their local resort full of the joys of summer, anticipating the life affirming benefits of sea air, candyfloss and a cone of steaming chips. Time to hit the beach!  Alas, it’s never that simple is it?  Even on our best days in the UK the weather will always have its say.  Despite the sunshine the inevitable coastal breeze can still bring a distinctly chilly edge to your trip. That’s where one of our typically stripy windbreaks for the beach will save the day.

Got Wind?  You need one of our Windbreaks for the Beach!

Nothing will take the gloss of your lovely day out than shivering under your stripy towel and grimacing at the grim crunch of sand that’s blown into your cheese sandwich. If only you had taken one of our windbreaks to shelter you from the cooling breeze allowing you to fully enjoy your day. Better still, our fantastic windbreaks for the beach will add a vibrant lift to your day beside the sea as you can buy your beach windbreak from our wide range of stripetastic colour combinations. Just like a sugary display of seaside rock. There’s bound to be one that suits your sunny personality especially when you’ve got that holiday feeling.

Even if you’re the type that doesn’t enjoy the seaside one of our stripy windbreaks for the beach will still improve your days out. Let’s face it the key word here is ‘wind’ and that doesn’t, unfortunately, confine itself to the coast.  Having your lovely stripy beach windbreak handy will protect you from the breeze on picnics in the country, on a weekend camping trip or even in the garden when you want to spend some time lazing around at home on a sunny but blowy day.

Out of Puff? – Not with our Windbreaks for the Beach

There’s some unusual contraptions around that purport to offer shelter from the wind. Complex things with poles and guy lines that flap around uselessly as you angrily try to put them up. Our brilliant stripy windbreaks couldn’t be simpler. Just unroll, press the four wooden poles into the ground and you’re ready. They’re sturdy and even have a handy pocket to stow those things that blow away and have you comically running down the beach as you try to get them back. When it’s time to go home just roll up your beach windbreak secure using the Velcro ties and you’re off!

Here at the stripes company we think our wide array of cool, stripy beach windbreaks are just the ticket for a great British day out no matter how blustery it is. We’re sure you’ll agree!

Funky Beach Bags

The bag – a simple sort of useful product (and probably the most underrated after the pocket!). Having been around for hundreds of years and have been used by both men and women. “Bags have been prevalent as far back as ancient Egypt. Many hieroglyphs depict males with bags tied around their waist. The Bible mentions pouches, especially Judas Iscariot, carrying one around, holding his personal items. In the 14th century, wary of pickpockets and thieves, many people used drawstring bags, in which to carry their money.” (Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia. Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. 22 July 2004. Web. 10 Aug. 2004.)

 

This most handy accessory has developed from being just a practical item for transporting goods to a must have fashion accessory that… well is still a practical item for transporting goods, but now they can be transported in style. From makeup, to sandwiches, clothing, even Chihuahua’s… Yes Paris Hilton we mean you!

It used to be fashionable bags would be the sole preserve of the fashion conscious lady but now the evolution of the bag has given us handbags, straw bags, paper bags, man bags, hand bags, bowling bags, clutch bags, bucket bags, duffel bags (to name only a few!) and that holiday favourite (essential) the beach bag.

Funky Beach Bags at The Stripes Company

At The Stripes Company we have a great range of practical yet funky beach bags for you to take advantage of. Whether you are a ‘pack everything in including the kitchen sink’ type of beachgoer or just the casual ‘throw a few items in’ we have a fantastic range of beach bags including Extra Large Beach Bags, Small Beach Bags, Large Shoppers Beach Bags, Linen Beach Bags or even Striped Tote Bags, that would be suitable for most tastes.

Of all the bags out there the one type holiday lovers will always have is the beach bag… why? A certain well known car manufacturer released an advert in which a well muscled beachgoer only had his trunks in which to keep items. Luckily he didn’t need a key for his car though he could have solved that whole problem with any of the funky beach bags from The Stripes Company collections. Just imagine trying to carry your towel, sun-cream, purse, wallet, flip-flops or other beach essential without one, it would be difficult.

 

Here at the Stripes Company we believe as well as being practical you can also be stylish so our collections of beach bags are styled to emphasise that. Our funky beach bags will turn heads while also allowing you to carry whatever you need for your day out at the beach.

Best Beach Towels

Our fab extra large beach towels have been voted one of the 10 best beach towels by the Independent – “a towel that looks good, will last you years & is a bit different from the average, we like Deckchairstripes now trading as The Stripes Company products’

They come in many vibrant colours all trimmed in a different one of our striped fabrics, with a variety of coordinating holiday products available too.
Every one of our top quality beach towels is constructed from 100% cotton terry loops which, unlike some velours, absorb moisture, meaning you get dryer much quicker.

If so our fluffy extra large beach towels are ideal for keeping you warm and dry and adding a touch of colour and style to your day.

The best beach towels we produce at The Stripes Company feature a deep dyed jewel bright coloured stripy border, perfect for making a statement while relaxing under the sun.

The Stripes Company luxury beach towels offer maximum coverage and measure an extra large 170 cms x 100 cms. Ideal for drying you fast and wrapping up to keep you warm on the beach

They are also perfect for draping on your poolside lounger for sunbathing by the pool.
