There are cultural style codes known the world over—for example the striped tees of France—but the discerning eye prefers more eclectic references to distinguish themselves from the pack. To wit, Rachel hand-selected the printed beach blankets from Skova to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of the Mediterranean. The plush, oversize towels are the ultimate summer essential, whether you’re heading to a picnic or are entertaining at home. Here, the story behind these vibrant conversation pieces and the locations that inspired them.

Artisan Marketplaces

The well-heeled traveler knows the gems that can be found in distant marketplaces. Everything from tiny trinkets to statement furniture promises to inject your home with eclectic character. Inspired by the artisan traditions of fabric dyeing and carpet weaving of Goreme in Eastern Turkey, the lush Skova blankets showcase vivid and intricate patterns, allowing you to bring a little exotic flair to your life.

Ancient Landscapes

From the Taurus Mountains of Turkey to the sculptures of the Roman Empire, the prints pay homage to the rugged natural landscapes and ancient emblems of the region. Whether you’re lounging on the beach or taking in the view of the city from your rooftop, these large blankets make for the perfect companion.

Sun-Drenched Hues

Ask any photographer and they’ll tell you the best thing about travel is experiencing the different types of sunlight around the world. Pulling from the color palette of Mediterranean evenings, this Skova blanket is rendered in vibrant reds, dusty pinks and rich ochre. We’ll take that over a stripe any day!
