PLAYA organic cotton beach shirts are just the right item to keep men cool at the beach. Organic cotton is much better for the planet and wildlife, it lasts longer (as fibres are not damaged by chemicals) and also biodegrades safely at end of life. And although warmer in winter, it’s also far cooler in summer, so more comfortable if you’re taking a stroll or sipping a glass of wine, while gazing over the ocean on a warm night.
A lot of these designs are influenced by traditional building patterns by the Greece beaches. We may not be in Greece, but you can buy this for your man, so he can look like a Greek God! The shirts are made with Turkish peshtemal cotton, which is a flat woven cotton that dates back 600 years. It has a towel-like absorbency and super-soft texture, uniquely crafted to reflect the climate and culture of a beach location. Everything is sent in plastic-free packaging, with profits helping to clean up our oceans.
The range is inspired by various locations from England to Spain to Greek diamond Santorini architecture and even the Maldives. Others are inspired by the Spanish tiles and groves of Spain’s southern hills.
This Soul Beach Poncho is just the thing for relaxing, after a surf or swim. Made from a blend of organic cotton and bamboo, it’s big enough to pull over a wetsuit, with cosy kind fabrics and a warm, twin-layer colour-contrasting hood with a high collar and pull cord, threaded through metal eyelets. The large front pocket offers plenty of space for carrying your bits and bobs, and is also good for warming your hands on chilly beach days. You can also use it as a ‘mobile changing room’. Also sold in a children’s size.
