Summah brings a sense of inspired luxury to any summertime unwind. Their towels are multi functional and practical, fast drying and super light weight making them the perfect travel companion
WHY I LOVE THEM
I have always loved the Summah collections and own a number of their towels and hand towels. You can feel that their quality is on another level, and Kirsten's design choices are hard to resist.
A lover of stripes and neutrals, almost everything in the collection appeals to my taste. From the photography to the website to the products themselves, it is clear that this team does things properly and doesn't cut corners.
To be able to work with a Brand that I have loved and supported for longer than Epiphany's existence is a always a dream come true.
When I use my Summah towels for a little tanning session in the garden, vacation memories come flooding back. Summah for me, is the epitome of vacation luxury, wild escapes, dreamy holidays and pure inspired happiness.
THIS MONTHS CURATIONS
I've never seen a Summah towel I didn't like. The Mallorca appeals to my love of stripes. It's a classic look that will stay chic for years to come. The minimalistic pattern with navy and black threads will look as good on the beach as it will hanging in your bathroom.
Summah towels become softer and more absorbent with each wash.
(Do not bleach or tumble dry)
They are multi-purposeful travel companions, paired with a cute bikini and a wide-brim sun hat, this towel is every bit fun as it is practical.

The crochet shopper / market bags are handmade by fishermens wives in Turkey. It takes a women 2 hours to make up each bag by hand. Each bag then receives a laser engraved leather label and is carefully packaged for each delivery.
The story behind each of these handmade bags makes then a treasure to own and I love an opportunity to support small families - wherever they may live in the world.
