Our story

A family business

A few years ago, with two children aged 3 and nearly 5, we were still using the baby hooded towels we bought when they were born, and they were looking decidedly on the small side!

My mum came to visit. “I think it might be time to get some bigger towels,” she said. “You’re right,” I agreed, “but I like having a hood on them and I can’t find any nice, big hooded bath towels anywhere.”

“Leave it to me” said my mum (who's a bit handy at making things). The next time she came to visit, she brought two lovely fluffy white towels with hoods, one with a fairy trim, and one with dinosaurs. Friends came over to play and saw the hooded towels, and they wanted some too...

...So here we are, my Mum and I, setting up Hooded Owls. We'd love to hear from you, so if you'd like to share any thoughts, please email us at hello@hoodedowls.co.uk or find us on facebook here.

Our towels

We think hooded towels should be fluffy and luxurious – just like the towels you get in a posh hotel. Our large hooded towels for children are just that; big, thick, super soft, fluffy and absorbent. They are substantially bigger than normal baby hooded towels, so should last for as long as they want to have a hood on their towel. And the hoods are made from a double layer of the same thick towelling, so they can absorb loads of water from even the thickest head of hair!

They also all feature a pop fastener, meaning you can keep them closed like a poncho towel, keeping little ones warm and snuggly while they run around, and giving older ones privacy when they're getting changed. And when you want the full towel for a good rub dry, simply release the popper and there's the whole towel again...

We’ve got elegant white hooded towels, bold colourful towels, personalised towels and even jumbo sized hooded towels to choose from so whether you need bath towels, swimming towels or a thoughtful gift for the little people in your life, we hope you’ll find what you’re looking for.

Beautiful thick towels - excellent quality.  Great customer service and swift delivery. Bought the maxi hooded towel for my 6 year old who’d outgrown her hooded swimming towel. She loves it! Towel material is much thicker than any other hooded towels we’ve had - really lovely quality and design.
