5 Slow Travel Essentials We Take On Every Trip
Whether chasing the sun or seeking calm in winter landscapes, here are some of our favourite travel accessories designed with sustainability in mind.
1. A favourite basket bagOur woven basket bags are handcrafted from locally sourced natural plant fibres, and are super versatile, incredibly light and easy to wear, making them ideal for travelling. Choose a basket with longer leather straps for extra comfort. Plus they squish down just enough to pop in your hand luggage, suitcase or under a seat in front of you.
2. Travel wash bags and pouches in different sizesStay organised while away with our beautiful hand block print washbags and zip pouches. These charming and spacious travel cases are perfect for essential toiletries and cosmetics. Pick the ideal size for your needs or opt for a set to separate toiletries, make-up, jewellery and other small items. We find multiple travel pouches are key for minimalist packing!
3. A hammam towelWe love our soft cotton hammam towels for their multiplicity of uses, from a quick-drying towel to a sarong-style beach wrap, picnic blanket, tablecloth or cosy scarf. Woven in Turkey on traditional looms from locally grown Turkish cotton, hammam towels are, in our opinion, a must-have travel accessory, especially when you want to pack light.
4. A notebookTake a pocket-sized notebook to use as a mini travel journal to capture highlights from your trip without constantly reaching for your phone. Our zero waste notebooks, handcrafted from textile waste, have the luxurious, tactile quality of handmade paper and feature pretty floral block printed covers.
5. A versatile scarf
A cotton or linen scarf is always on our packing list. Whether you're travelling to a warm destination or need a light layer in cooler temperatures, a linen scarf provides comfort without adding bulk to your luggage. It packs easily, doesn't wrinkle as much as other fabrics and is quick drying too. It's also very useful if you visit places where modest dress is required.
