Spa Wraps

Greetings Stitchers! Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you all get to spend the day with your loved ones… or, with a nice big box of chocolate.

Maybe it was Valentine’s Day or merely a coincidence, but I’ve gotten lots of requests for spa wraps. You know, those towel-like wraps that either have an elastic top or a Velcro closure. I’d like to think some of you men out there were romantic and gave your significant others a spa wrap and gift certificate for an hour long massage. (Oh, you didn’t think about that? There’s always next year.)

Anyway, also keep in mind that spa wraps are not meant just for last-minute gifts for the missus.  There’s quite a potential market for these little numbers. Go to gyms, day spas, health clubs and beaches and you’ll have a client-base in no time.

Now, to find out where you can get them, check below.

Dear Phil,
I have a customer who runs a day spa. She is looking for jackets for her estheticians. She wanted something like a lab coat, but shorter and perhaps with 3/4 length sleeves. She also wants towels that can be used as a body wrap (have a Velcro fastener or something along those lines). I haven't had any luck with my usual suppliers, so I thought I'd see if you could help me find what I'm looking for.
Jean

Jean, now what in the heck is an esthetician?! Well, OK. I looked it up. It’s just a fancy word for beautian isn’t it!? Well, I can’t say I’ve ever been to an “esthetician,” but I do know where you can find some uniforms. Go to Fits Uniforms (asi/53471), 10821 Lakeview Ave., Lenexa, KS  66219, or (800) 348-7669; www.fitsuniforms.com. This company has a 6 oz. women’s lab coat with ¾ sleeves that has two lower pockets and it’s a 65/35 polyester blend. Plus, it comes in a few color options. Now, for those spa wraps, go to Pro Towels Etc. (asi/79750), 565 Epsilon Dr., Pittsburgh, PA  15238, or (800)547-8783; www.protowelsetc.com. Product number SPM-22 is a men’s wrap (with Velcro closure) and SPL-29 is the ladies option. Also try Terry Collection (asi/90912), 5945 Ravenswood Rd. Bldg. 2, Ft. Lauderdale, FL  33312, or (800) 728-6935; www.terrycollection.com. This company carries quite a few spa wraps (in other colors too) so be sure to browse the whole collection. 

Dear Phil,
I am looking for wholesale ladies terry/velour towel/body wraps with straps. I can find them without shoulder straps but haven't seen them wholesale with shoulder straps. Help!
Allison

Allison, I found them. But, I’ve got admit that I thought you were off your rocker for a minute. I didn’t think they made wraps with straps! To order these towels, go to Terry Town (asi/90913) , 1440 Innovative Drive, Ste. 300, San Diego, CA  92154, or (800) 242-9793; www.terrytowninc.com/asi. Then, go to product number WL5003. It’s a 12 ounce, cotton terry cloth towel with straps. It also comes with a headband too. 

Dear Phil,
I bought ladies' wrap towels several years ago and now I can't find them. Do you know where I can buy them?
Thanks,
Nancy

Nancy, I’ve heard these are really popular with spas and resorts. But, are the wearers ever afraid of losing their towel? I would be! There are a couple of suppliers out there. Start with Boca Terry LLC (asi/40766), 3000 SW 15th St. Ste. H., Deerfield Beach, FL  33442, or (877) 421-6001; www.asisupplier.com/bocaterry. This company has both men and women’s styles. Then, go to Fairdeal Import and Export (asi/53509), 3855 Henning Dr- Unit 116, Burnaby, BC V5C 6N3, or (800) 353-3435; www.fiel.com. This company also has wrap arounds for men and women in lots of colors and styles to pick from.

This web property is actually owned by a company named�Imperial E-Club Limited, which is based in Antigua and Barbuda. Also, online casinos are exceptional for beginners or advanced players, because you can play what you want, when you want, for free, or for real money. You can either play for fun, or play for real money. It is reasonable for a car dealership to offer a prize of a car.

In the traditional option, very little time is spent in actually playing the game. The only disadvantage of online casino can be easily resolved. If you start your gambling campaign on a Monday with $200. From booking a movie ticket to booking a place for marriage , each particular thing can be done over the internet and so as gambling.
