Ma-Lyra, soft luxurious towels
The dusty green towel set, in soft organic cotton, is in a set of two, measuring 80×150 and 50x90cm. The towels are GOTS and OEKO-TEX certified, meaning they are produced under strict environmental requirements and standards. The towels come with handmade embroidered floral borders.
The towel set has handmade borders elegantly decorated with floral embroideries in red and green tones. Both the design and the embroideries are inspired by the colorful Turkish history and culture, in a mix of tradition and innovation, made with respect for the nature and the environment. Turkey has a long and renowned tradition in textile production and especially the Aegean region has for millennia been recognized for their high-quality cotton. Hence, Aegean cotton has extra-long fibers, meaning that the towels are both fluffy, durable and absorbent -and getting even softer after washing.
