Effortlessly chic, recreate a spa in your bathroom with our handmade Alem Towel. Traditional and timeless, take Alem with you to the beach, for a picnic or fashion as a sarong. Woven by hand from 100% Ethiopian cotton, these towels become softer, fluffier and more absorbent with every wash. Dyed in small batches using an environmentally-friendly process and fringed by hand, each towel is one of a kind and takes roughly two days to make.
In versatile gray, the Alem Towel blends seamlessly with all bathroom decors, adding texture and style to every surface.
