Around 5 years ago, an unassuming conversation led to an interesting concept and amusing idea. This exchange planted a seed that would slowly germinate and develop into a passion and an undeniable compulsion.
A dream turned to goal.
A vision realized into shape.
A sketch chiseled to a design.
How powerful an idea is, morphing debate into brand, and creativity into product.
What you now recognize as the revolutionary Vertty Beach towel was the first of its kind. It was a feat, both in design and engineering.
Nobody knew how to make it. Nobody had ever done it.
Until we came along. Until we did it.
We’ve come a long way since then, and in many ways, it’s all thanks to you.
With the overwhelming acceptance and support since its first day, Vertty rose from an ambitious one-product start-up, to a global, established and award-winning brand, shipping beach towels to more than 60 countries around the globe, in under two years, and spreading to nearly every beach in the world.
Throughout this journey, we’ve shared much together. Since our early days of brainstorming and brand-building meetings, we’ve always held our relationship with our customers to the highest of regards and as one of our main focus points. We’ve made it one of our brand’s cornerstones, relying heavily on this back and forth to maintain our standards, or when necessary, have them rise and meet your expectations.
As a result of this partnership, we’ve expanded our catalog, listening to your pleas for versatility and constant innovation. We’ve created the Vertty backpack, an homage to the city’s spirit and beach culture.
Every one of these achievements is not our own, but yours. It is your voice we follow, it is your desires we pursue, your passion that guides us. That’s one of Vertty’s long standing beliefs and mottos.
We want you to TRY, try new things, try the world, try other worlds, try yourself.
And, once again, we hear your frustrations, we feel your angst. You want more, you need more. And there’s so much still to do, so many things yet to learn from each other.
This platform was created for that purpose. Here, we’ll talk about our ambitions, goals and aspirations, but aside from that, we want to hear from you, share with YOU.
You’re already a part of our story, but now we want you to become more, we want you to be a part of our team. Our family. Our future.
Meet you there.

In love with the sea and sport. I try to surf a better wave every day, spend more time in the water, on the beach, share waves with friends, go on a new trip, meet new cultures and people. This is my way of life.
Competition ? It s part of evolution. Test my limits, overcome myself, achieve what I never reached, win, lose, but still don t give up.
"Let me introduce you To my side of the funk Classy, Nasty, Messy, Sassy And that's how I began. I am Freak, I'm Da Chick, it is time for you to know me. Your mom will think i'm pretty, And yes i'm pretty lovely".
This is pretty much how Da Chick's world can be portrayed. No need and no time for bulshit about what she's been doing, her record collection and her major influences. She tells us her blood is a mix of rhythm, colours and energy, and you can take her word for it.
My photography work is purely based on my surroundings. Im inspired by shapes, colours and people that define the everyday life of wherever i am at the moment. Being a graphic designer composition plays a key role in my work as i seek the perfect framing for each and every shot i try to capture. For me the story of a photo lies within the frozen frame, more specifically how its framed and composed by the photographer. As a story teller and a photographer my stories are frozen frames of my everyday life, travels and happenchances as the way i see it.t my limits, overcome myself, achieve what I never reached, win, lose, but still don t give up.
Portuguese visual artist and illustrator Kruella d'Enfer (1988) has been delighting us with her enchanted visual world, evoking a deep sense of wonder with the fantastical, benevolent creatures that inhabit its dark and mysterious corners, be they mystical wolves or magical foxes, bewitching tigers or shamanistic deer. At ease painting both large-scale murals and intimist works on paper and canvas, her use of contrasting colours and geometric shapes brings age-old legends and myths to life, composing fantastic stories with a universal appeal. She has been exhibiting her work in solo and collective shows since 2010.
