1. Linen Bath Towels by pureWHITEspa
Kicking things off with this gorgeous set of two towels, one for the face and one for the entire body. Hand made out of natural Baltic linen, these towels are the perfect accessories for recreating a relaxing SPA ambiance at home. Their rough texture will make your skin feel super clean, revived and ready to take on whatever the day brings. The items have natural wrinkles which gives them their very unique appearance. It is recommended not to iron them, as linen is considered to be a “live cloth”, with remedial qualities. Needless to say, the natural material in them will ensure that they’ll last a looong time – and look better with each wash.
