Sun of a Beach is a Greek brand that embraces the heart of summer and the soul of the sea. It offers premium beach towels and beach accessories, featuring one-of-a-kind prints and high quality materials— all designed and made in Greece.
Inspired by the long, hot summers, the Greek islands, the deep blue Mediterranean Sea, and the endless golden sandy beaches, designers Melina Pispa and Ellie Rountou advanced the traditional beach towel into an innovative and fresh, fashion accessory.
The result is a variety of beach towels for the style-savvy and the comfort-seekers, the kids and the grown-ups, the girls and the boys.
Pispa and Rountos decided it was time to move beyond the basic beach towel and took it the next level, creating an award-winning series of beach bags, pouches, and accessories, which are now sold throughout Greece and the world— and now in Australia.
From the logo to the prints and the quality of the products, Sun of a Beach aims to create beautiful memories of the carefree summer days, and to elicit sweet emotions of sun kissed happiness.
Handmade and locally produced in Greece, each Sun of a Beach product inevitably holds a piece of summer bliss, ready to escort you on your next beach voyage.
Sun of a Beach is one of Greece’s most successful young companies. The founders recently won the prestigious Young Entrepreneurs award given by the Stelios Philanthropic Foundation, founded by Greek Cypriot businessman and Easy Group of Companies Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou.
Last month, Sun of a Beach’s long awaited Australian launch took place, making their products available to the country’s online shoppers via a dedicated website.
The Sun of a Beach team looked into blending the allure of the Mediterranean summer that it represents together with the hip Australian beach culture and saw that they would make a perfect match as they share common values and aesthetics.
Plans are currently under way to expand into the country’s retail locations along the famous Australian beachfront.
Speaking to The Pappas Post about the expansion Down Under, Pispa explained it was a combination of Australia’s world-famous beach culture, as well as its thriving Greek diaspora community.
“We’ve seen and heard how amazing and dynamic the Greek Australian community is on so many levels. We’ve heard how much they love Greece and all things Greek, so we’re hoping they will be proud to add us to their beach routine– and be proud doing it, knowing that these products were designed by Greeks and made in Greece,” Pispa said.
