How it began
Anna is the designer and founder from Aelia towels. She's Greek and born in Australia. When enjoying Summer holidays in Greece, her husband liked them to go on boat trips. Anna was always carrying a bulky bag, until her friend introduced her to the Pestemal. Light and soft, it was love at first sight! The combination of her love for Greece, design and the practical Pestemal was the beginning of Aelia towels.
The making of
Anna hand draws all the designs. Her team in Thessaloniki hand-looms them. Besides Pestemal towels, the collection has also lightweight beach bags, handy pouches, bed covers and even bathrobes. All made with natural cotton fibres and great care for detail.
