TAKE a lawyer and an in­dus­trial chemist turned mar­ket­ing man­ager, add four chil­dren un­der five and a bath time dilemma and what do you get?

In the case of Cosi Tow­els, it’s a so­lu­tion to the prob­lem of mak­ing bath time fun.

Cosi Tow­els came out of a need for some­thing sis­ters Tina and Jo Ran­dello could not find for their own chil­dren.

“The op­tions were lim­ited and ranged from 50 shades of white to a zoo of an­i­mals,’’ Tina says.

“We were look­ing for some­thing soft and lux­u­ri­ous to touch, play­ful de­sign-wise for the kids but also stylish and colour­ful that we would be proud to leave hang­ing in the bath­room all day.”

Cosi, which hon­ours the sis­ters’ Ital­ian her­itage, means “like this”.

“The range cap­tures an empow- er­ing rich­ness and op­u­lence that is fun for chil­dren and gives in­stant glam­our to any adult’s bath­room,” Tina says.

The other main drive was mak­ing bath time fun for fussy chil­dren.

“My young daugh­ter hates to be dried so I just wrap her in the towel and by the time we’ve walked down the hall­way to her change ta­ble, voila – she’s dry,’’ Tina says.

Jo adds: “Bath time has al­ways been such a spe­cial time in our homes be­cause it’s that time to bond. The girls re­ally get a kick out of hid­ing un­der their tow­els and cre­at­ing a lit­tle cubby house.”

The sis­ters say it’s about cre­at­ing beau­ti­ful things.

“And noth­ing beats the hap­pi­ness of cud­dling our gor­geous chil­dren in the soft beauty of some­thing we cre­ated,” Jo says.
