Launched in 2017, Australian textile label Købn brings Copenhagen-style poolside.
Købn’s muted colour palette, inspired by the streets of Copenhagen, is an aesthetic revelation for design-obsessed home owners who wish to carry their interior styling from the house to the pool deck.
“Australians do indoor-outdoor living so well and swimming pools are a beautiful focal point but so many well considered interiors are destroyed when the towels come out,” said Købn Founder and Creative Director Sophie Matson.
“It kills me to see overtly branded, garishly patterned, beach purposed towels destroy great interior styling, so I decided to do something about it.”
Købn fills the gap in the market for beautifully designed pool towels in keeping with your interior aesthetic.
A homewares veteran, Matson spent twelve years as Senior Textile Designer for Country Road Home. She always knew she would champion her own label and Købn provides the opportunity to express her well-honed vision producing designs in the highest quality fabrics.
Every detail of Købn is thoughtfully considered. The towels are reversible, with one side terry and one side plain weave, a finish more akin with interior fabrics. They feature raw edge fringing and drop pile stripes. The towels are crafted by a family-owned mill in Denizli, Turkey, a region synonymous with high quality textiles, ensuring impeccable fabrication and ethical production.
Light weight but super absorbent, the generous 100 x 180cm towels are light enough to pop in your tote and ferry to lunchtime yoga, the beach or the park. Function has not been forgotten, they take up very little room in the home washing machine and are quick drying – great news for families or the savvy traveler.
The name Købn comes from the Danish word for Copenhagen; København.
