FAITES VOTRE CHOIX :

3 good reasons

  • you are sick of dragging around that huge Ikea bag filled with 5kg of towels (if they are dry) when you go to the beach or the pool
  • you want to put something else besides beach towels in your largest suitcase when you go on vacation
  • you like vibrant colours, but you want each member of the family to be able to easily recognize his or her towel

how does it work?

The hardest part is deciding between all the different colours, each one prettier than the next

details

what is Kikoi?

Kikoi or Kikoy means sarong, or traditional skirt, in Swahili: in the beginning it was a traditional Kenyan fabric hand woven by men from the best East African cotton, edged with handmade fringes. Used at first as a sarong or a cover, its brilliant colours, its versatility, and its superb design made it into a veritable ambassador of East African craftsmanship throughout the world: beach towels, scarves, pareos, picnic blankets, the kikoi can do anything.

The Kikoi towel is a true favorite of the whole LaPaDD family. In fact, we've been using them for several years. Even though they are African, we discovered them in Spain in 2007. A message to those who, like us, like well-made things: to try it is to adopt it (at our house, each family member has his or her own and no one shares).

extras

light and compact: no heavier than three tubes of tanning lotion. Once rolled, its only slightly bigger than a pareo

ultra practical: one side in woven cotton and one side in mixed cotton terry cloth. It's the perfect combination for super quick drying, and for being able to see which side is for the sand and which side is for your skin—thus avoiding getting covered in sand. A small pocket with a velcro closure can hold your sunglasses and small change while you are swimming.

colourful: it is hard to resist its bright colours. It comes in turquoise, pink, soft pink, red orange, and navy blue. Something for Mom, Dad, and the kids.

solid: we have subjected our kikois to our washer and dryer for three years and they are in great shape, and their bright colours are still intact.

versatile and original: more comfortable than the Tunisian "foutah" and other spa wear, the Kikoi has the enormous advantage of being just as original but much more practical and comfortable. You always have the terry cloth side to roll yourself up in after swimming. And as a pareo, it has such style!
