RTC's Mission
to Heal the Oceans

"RTC donates 5% of our net profits to several marine agencies working to heal and protect our oceans. We like to think our collections are more than beautiful towels; to us they are the embodiment of our desire to protect and restore our Oceans on a global scale. We hope that creating relationships with these world class marine organizations will turn our towels into waves of advocacy"

About Us

Riviera Towel Company’s core missions are economic and ecological sustainability. Founded in 2014 by husband and wife, Albert and Shannon DiPadova, the two were inspired by their time abroad in Europe. They noticed that the locals were carrying thin, soft, beautifully colored towels while at the beach. After some research and multiple trips to Turkey, they decided to bring the perfect material for beach towels, wraps, blankets back home.

Healing Our Oceans One Towel At Time

Enamored by the hand-woven details and the bright colors of the world’s most beautiful beach destinations, each product is lovingly designed, made, and packaged for you.Not only do the towels, clothing, and soft throw blankets represent thousands of years of textile traditions, it also represents the modern threat of saving the ocean. Albert and Shannon wanted to create a business that gives back to the communities and protects our environment.

Ocean conservation is more important than ever with the increasing urgencies of pollution, global warming, and the fishing industry. Riviera Towel Company has pledged 5% of the net profit from all purchases to be donated to Marine agencies and charities that are working hard to save our oceans.Riviera Towel company is more than a brand but a powerful movement to begin the transformation of future businesses and the opportunities companies can take by supporting local artisans and giving back to their communities.

Marine agencies we support

"Many of us ask what can I, as one person, do, but history shows us that everything good and bad starts because somebody does something or does not do something."
