2019 summer trends

Beach towels have gained in popularity due to the growing numbers of travelers. For ecommerce sellers like yourself, beach towels open new avenues for your online store growth.

The summer season will be here before you know it. People are going to start spending more time outdoors by the pool and/or at the beach. 

Regardless of age, everyone finds beach towels useful. 

Pro Tip: Use the entire garment’s surface to run your imagination wild.

Next to walking – swimming is the second-most popular beach activity and sun-bathing being the third. You’ll find that all over print beach towels and blankets can drive sales for your online store quickly during summer days. With that said, towels can be considered a seasonal or all year-long product.

Pineapple

The first encounter between pineapple and humans was recorded in 1493 by Christopher Columbus.

When Columbus returned to Europe with pineapple, it became an instant hit among the royal court. It took years for Europeans to grow pineapples, therefore, back then it was considered as a symbol of hospitality and privilege.

Today, pineapple remains the symbol of hospitality both in New England and many of the Southern states.

You can find symbols of pineapple in many households from canvas to blankets. Pineapple is a popular decor across the nation.
