The sunset over the Sahara desert in Africa inspired our Sahara Sunset collection. The golden colors of the sunset are reflected on one side, while the reverse side captures the deep color after the sun goes down.
100% GOTS certified organic cotton and dyes are handwoven on looms into a dense double-loop weave, setting a new standard for softness, absorbency and durability.
At 45 in. x 21 in. , use in the bathroom as an oversized hand towel, hair wrap, kitchen or even as a bathmat; pure, natural luxury.
Each piece we sell can be traced back to a family workshop, made sustainably and ethically in southern Turkey. Slowly handcrafted on old-style shuttle looms, some pieces taking days to make.
Aside from the environmental benefits, organic cotton is more absorbent, dries faster, remains soft, and is better at reducing moisture-induced bacteria, which means your products will never smell musty.
Most towels are produced on factory machines using inferior quality cotton or synthetic fibers. The speed and size of the machines means that the threads need to be coated in starch and wax to prevent them breaking during production. The final product will not absorb water as well and only lasts a few years when compared with Alaina Organic's, which can last decades if cared for properly. In fact the more you use and wash them, the softer and more absorbent they become.
Everyday care is easy; gentle cold or warm machine wash with a natural laundry detergent and either tumble dry or hang dry. See towel care for full product care details.
