ABOUT US

Born out of necessity and loved for our quality, SOLAQUA is an Australian based, luxurious lifestyle brand inspired by fashion, travel, art and culture. A blend of style and sustainability, where integrity and tradition are not only upheld but cherished – from our thoughtful designs to the limited-edition colourways, 100% organic cotton and handcrafted methods, SOLAQUA was inspired by the sun & the sea, the essence of summer. Founded by a husband and wife duo who strive to bring sustainable & accessible luxury to their customers through 100% certified Cotton & Linen towels hand loomed by traditional artisans in Kayseri, Turkey.

With a background in fashion, founder Jessica Cognetta conceptualised SOLAQUA while packing for an Italian holiday. She wanted a light-weight towel in a muted palette that would last the European Summer and beyond, yet couldn’t find the quality she coveted. Research into sustainability and ethical standards saw Jessica partner with a third-generation Loomer based in Turkey. 

From our inception, SOLAQUA was more than just a towel company – we are an ethical and environmentally conscious, female-owned and operated label. We value traditional craftsmanship and support a community of makers. Each piece is a work of art, hand-loomed by skilled artisans on a vintage loom from the 1960s.

Perfect for the Australian beaches, lounging by your pool, or in your home, our towels are designed to be light weight, fast drying and multi functional.
 

Our stance on sustainability

From products to packaging, we are 100% plastic-free. Our cotton is sustainably sourced and 100% organic. Our SOLAQUA boxes are constructed using sustainably sourced paper, from certified plantations. To print, we use soy-based inks. As we grow, it is our mission to continue to be environmentally and ethically responsible. 

Our mission is to provide responsible luxury to our customers.
