A brief history
The Pareo consists of a square of beautifully decorated material usually made of fine cotton.
It’s is an invaluable item to include in your beach bag, and even if you're not a beach person it can be a wonderful multi purpose item to put in your suitcase when traveling.
Little information is documented on its origins but it's generally believed to have originated in Tahiti and Polynesia.
The word “Pareo” is a Tahitian word that translates as “wrap- around -skirt”. The Pareo was worn by women whilst men had their own traditional dress such as loin cloths.
The designs, which were originally hand printed, are inspired from nature, particularly flowers such as the Hibiscus with its exquisitely formed flowers and dazzling bright colours.
