DOCK & BAY'S BRAND STORY
We’re here to stripe up your life with towels that you’ll tell your friends about, while banishing boring lifestyle products. Supporting charities we love while pushing positivity is a key pillar of our mission - we’re the boldest on the beach, in the bathroom and by the pool, and we won’t stop until we’ve made the world brighter.
OUR STORY SO FAR
Launched in August 2015, Dock & Bay has grown up fast (something the founders never did!)
We set out to create the ultimate quick dry beach towel, and now we make not only that, but a range of innovative, high quality, affordable and sustainable products that our customers can’t seem to get enough of - thanks by the way!
Read on to learn more about the brand and the people behind it...
A Brit (Andy) and an Aussie (Ben), started Dock & Bay by drinking too much after work one day. Sharing a passion for travel and not taking themselves too seriously, they pulled down a red curtain from the wall and stuck pieces of white paper to it, creating their first towel design with our now iconic stripes.
And the rest, as they say, is history....
THE BEST BITS
The journey so far has involved a visit to the Dragons' Den, exciting investments, innovations galore and now we have a talented team of 20 taking the brand to the next level, including big steps in sustainability and 'Doing our Bit'.
NOT ONLY ON DRAGONS DEN
We were super excited to be selected as one of the Sunday Times Fast Track - Ones to Watch 2019 and in 2020 we came 13th (now our lucky number) in the Start-Ups 100 list. Not too bad for two guys who stuck strips of paper on a red curtain, eh?
