Portofino Towel by Elysian by Emily Morrison



As a child, Emily Morrison was always drawn to the unknown. After graduating from the University of Virginia and completing her law and business degrees at Tulane University, she spent the next sixteen years working on Wall Street. During this time, Morrison's passion for travel took her on many adventures, including a spontaneous trip to Turkey in the spring of 2019. During this trip, she encountered a world of beauty; From the lure of the Silk Road to the stalls of the Grand Bazaar, she was captivated by the colors and craftsmanship of local artisans.  

Inspired by her experiences in Turkey, Morrison founded Elysian by EM, a line of striking apparel, accessories, and gifts. Hand-crafted in Turkey, each of the brand’s pieces features the saturated colors, rich patterns, and intricate textures of traditional Turkish design. With each creation, Elysian by EM hopes to bring you on a journey of inspiration and exploration. 

Soft, lightweight, and absorbent, Elysian’s Portofino towels are hand-woven in Turkey with 100% cotton and a hand-knotted rope tassel. With a chevron print and an alternating color scheme on the front and back, the towels are a beautiful and functional accent, perfect as a sarong, beach or pool companion, or decorative piece.
