Our Beach Towel rainbow design is playing with gradients in tone as each color blends into the next. There is also play with hue saturation. The pattern used on the towel is called a quatrefoil. The center of the quatrefoil is edging towards pastel tone and the outlines are full saturation of hue.
The word quatrefoil translates to ‘four leaves’ and indicates a four leaf design that has a long history! Some records indicate its use in the Mayan culture dating back 700 BCE. It makes a regular appearance in Gothic architecture and during the Renaissance period. This particular quatrefoil is a barbed quatrefoil which may have first appeared in the around 1260 on the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, France. The angles indicate thorns between the four petals of the shape. It is an enduring design of symmetry and balance.
Nut and Squirrel is able to offer a wide array of designs because your purchase is produced once you place your order. That’s right! You place the order and then we make the product! With this customization in mind, please review our Return Policy.
The process of creating the graphics on our products uses a water based ink. This allows the color to become part of the fabric and not sit on top of the fabric as is typical with traditional silk screening.
The time frame to custom produce your beach towel is between 2 to 7 days, with 3 days being the average. You also have a choice of which shipping method you will select and at what speed you wish to receive your custom beach towel.
