Getting Cozy with Elile Loom

With snow having been dumped on 90% of the US, there is no better time to think about getting cozy. Today I bring you blankets, towels, dish rags, and robes that are sure to make you feel swaddled in love post outdoor activity, chores, or bath. My dear friend from college (who is a master of reinvention!) spent more than 2 decades working in TV. She then left the industry for other projects and to raise her 4 children full time. When her husband was diagnosed with cancer she saw the havoc that dyed and chemically treated materials did on his skin after chemotherapy. Sara, never one to sit back and wait for solutions, had recently travelled to Turkey to visit family. There she found 100% cotton organic towels that were heaven on the body and seemed to not affect her husband’s sensitive skin. And that is the birth story behind Elile Loom, which means “By Hand” in Turkish. Elile Loom Turkish Towels are hand-loomed with 100% GOTS certified organic Turkish cotton. The towels are never treated with any harsh chemicals or synthetics and only natural dyes are used so the towels are naturally anti-bacterial and nonirritating. 

I bought a bucketload of the lightweight towels a year ago and they were a dream at the pool and beach all summer long. They air-dry in 5-10 minutes. And they are thin enough to be easily packed for travel. With a new nephew in the family I can’t wait to order the baby blanket. And the hand towels and throws make wonderful hostess gifts at just the right price point. If you live locally, Sara is sure to be hosting a trunk show in Greenwich once Covid is over. And in the meantime you can visit her site here to order product to be shipped to your home. Side note – the bathrobe is also the perfect thing to add into your sweat-pant rotation. Lord knows I’m just about ready to burn every pair of pajamas I own. Get shopping!
