Gilao Beach Towel

Natural, dark blue & mustard Ikat-inspired design

100% cotton, 100 x 180 cm


The Gilao Beach Towel is right on-trend this season, and guaranteed to make a style statement at the beach or spa. Displaying an Ikat-inspired, geometric motif on the front with a four-centimetre eyelet fringe on either end, this beach towel combines superior weaving craftsmanship with a modern take on tribal pattern. Using an intricate jacquard weave, the Gilao features shallow terry weave on the reverse, and a smooth finish on the front, ensuring the pattern looks its best. Thanks to this, the Gilao is thicker than a standard hammam but thinner than a traditional beach towel: lightweight, absorbent, and comfortable. And beautiful enough to use as a shawl, too.

This collection is made according to the following industry certification standards:


The Gilao collection was an instant hit with practically everyone at the office, because it really is the best of both worlds. Thick and soft but space-saving in your beach bag or suitcase, its ideal for those who want to lie on it at the beach and use it as a wrap at the spa. The collection itself is a beautiful example of the return to time-proven crafting techniques, with a nod to cultures and stories that influence the designs.

Clemence ASKS:

"What is meant by a shallow terry weave?"

"A terrycloth is woven with loops in the fabric: think of the texture of a big, fluffy towel. For this collection, the terry weave has smaller, thinner loops: this gives the towel absorbency and softness, but reduces the bulk of a big, fluffy beach towel."
