Color-Drenched Bath Linens from Portugal

Issue 3 · Paints & Patterns · January 23, 2014

Seeking color-saturated luxury bath linens? Portuguese company Abyss & Habidecor is the go-to source (just ask the geniuses at Seattle shop Totokaelo). Abyss & Habidecor began as a partnership between boyhood friends 30 years ago in Northern Portugal, and is split into two departments. Abyss focuses on bath robes and towels, while Habidecor handles bathmats and larger rugs. All bath linens are available in a range of colors—60 different pigments to be exact—and manufacturing is environmentally conscious and focused on an efficient use of natural resources.
