If you’re heading down to the seaside this summer, stylish beach accessories are a must. Beach trips are often the highlight of the summer, and having an organised, on-trend beach kit makes the experience much more relaxing and luxurious. African bags and towels are bang on trend, gorgeous and practical, so are the perfect accessory for when you’re heading down to the sea. Make a statement on the sands with bold print African bags and wrap up in style with sleek towels, hand made by creative African artisans.
As this article by Bronze magazine explains, the 2014 African fashion trend is all about being “unique and daring”. For many years African patterns in clothing have exuded personality and originality, but they’re now modernised and highly relevant to the Western fashion scene. Whilst African fashion pieces can wow as worn by celebrities such as Beyoncé, often just a splash of the style is even more striking. To achieve this burst of culture and colour, African accessories are the perfect option. And when is a bit of colour needed than when visiting the seaside and sunning yourself?
An African bag says it all – bright summer shades, a unique touch and authentic style. Our Leather Liya Tote Bags are a simple statement in a luxuriously soft goat leather hand dyed in Ethiopia in vibrant colours. This piece is highly versatile, so can be taken from the beach to the city for an al fresco meal for the perfect summer day. These are also available in chic pouches to carry the essentials on an evening out. Alternatively, our Ashanti waxed clutch bags are beautiful and add that bit of glamour. If you’re looking for something a bit more edgy, our Della Hobo bags, available in a wide variety of funky patterns, were made in Ghana with a long strap and vibrant colours for a more laid-back look.
Say goodbye to bobbled old bathroom towels and hello to our bestselling hand woven Ethiopian towel range. These African towels are woven with Ethiopian cotton, and are both lightweight and luxuriously soft. Our bright Selam range of block colours and stripes are a great way to update your beach bag and add some sunshine to your beach trip. Our new Genet towels are a little more understated, with stripes of muted but beautiful colours for a chic look. Out Marlet and Eden ranges offer eye-catching stripes of gorgeous tones. All of these towels are the perfect way to update your seaside style simply, and can even be taken home to bring a shine to your bathroom!
