How it began
Anna is the designer and founder of Aelia towels. She is Greek and was born in Australia. On summer holidays in Greece, her husband liked to go on boat trips. Anna always carried 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 draws all the designs by hand. Her team in Thessaloniki weaves them. In addition to Pestemal towels, the collection includes lightweight beach bags, practical pouches, bedspreads and even bathrobes. All are made from natural cotton fibres and with great attention to detail.
