Artisan-Crafted Ethical Luxury
Unique gift ideas for your special mum
This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 13th May. I often hear people say they’ve run out of ideas for what to get their mum for Mothers Day. How do you choose the perfect gift to express heartfelt gratitude to one of the most important and special people in your life.
Have you ever thought to yourself, maybe it’s time to stop wasting money on gifts that are appreciated at the time but not truly enjoyed. In this day and age there are so many ‘gifts’ that are exchanged with a short shelf life, in terms of how long the gift recipient gets to enjoy the gift, as well as how long the gift can be used before it ends up in landfill.
Here at Aegean Loom, all our towels have a life expectancy of at least 20 years, so you can choose a quality, ethical and luxurious gift that will stand the test of time and be enjoyed for many years to come.
Who is the special motherly figure in your life?
I believe there is nothing more meaningful and beautiful than slowly handmade products.
They whisper a love-soaked message in your ear about their amazing journey to get to you, embedded with secrets and techniques passed on from generation to generation. Handmade products have a soul that no factory produced product ever could. That is why I am so passionate about keeping the exquisite and masterful craft of hand-loomed Turkish towels alive, and protecting it from being taken over by mass-production.
Let us give you a helping hand with some favourite gift ideas from our selection:
The Chill Pestemal, says everything in the name really! Perfect for the beach and makes a gorgeous sarong. This pestemal also suits a range of interiors, so if your mum is into her decor – the Hamptons style is a particular favourite – she might enjoy having this lovely pestemal hanging over the side of an armchair when it’s not being used.
Luxe Bathrobe / Dressing Gown
Waffle Weave Pestemal Towel / Throw
Mum will love this Waffle Weave Pestemal towel, for both looks and versatility. Like all of our towels, this ultra-cool weave has been created by hand on old-style shuttle looms, operated by Turkish artisans. These artisans have passed this craft down through many generations and you can share a piece of this tradition with a special woman in your life. Bathroom, beach or interior decor, she is sure to find a place for it in her heart and home.
Luxurious hand towels
For the mum who loves entertaining and is all about the’ look and feel’ when it comes to her home, these incredibly soft hand towels are a wonderfully practical and stylish accessory. Just add gentle aromatic handwash and the experience of hand washing and drying is taken to the next level!
The ‘Reef’ Turkish Bath Sheet
The Reef Bath Sheet comes in beautiful tones of blue, brown and grey to complement the most on-trend bathrooms. Crafted from 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton and dyes (like all of our towels), this thick and luxurious bath sheet is a larger size for ultimate warmth and comfort. Hand-tied fringing details finish off a truly unique piece that mum is sure to fall in love with. Size approx 165cm x 95cm
