During the summer, I spend a lot of time at the beach. And while my beach bag is always packed with essentials like sunscreen and water, I never head out without a Las Bayadas beach blanket.

These Mexican-made blankets first caught my eye a few years ago when I spotted a rainbow blanket on the beach and immediately went to Google to find my own. Not only are these blankets vibrant, but they are incredibly soft and lightweight, unlike a traditional beach towel. They dry off quickly and are large in size (they’re 78 x 78 in.), making them perfect for sharing with friends.

If you’re new to the brand, Las Bayadas began more than 10 years ago when “a young and adventurous French girl arrived to a small fishing town named Sayulita in Mexico.” Today, the brand also offers bags and kid-size blankets, but its products continue to be inspired by traditional Mexican woven patterns and have a little French touch.

Plus, Las Bayadas also keeps the environment in mind while producing its goods in Mexico; the brand works with a local recycled cotton company when creating each collection.

These blankets are, of course, perfect for bringing to the beach or pool, but you could easily use them as a picnic blanket, a table cloth or a decorative pop of color in your home, too. I’ve gifted blankets to a bunch of my family and friends, so if you have a loved one’s birthday coming up, I can’t recommend Las Bayadas enough. Also worth noting, the brand offers custom items for weddings if you want to give a blanket or bag with a personal touch to your guests!

While the blankets do come in over 30 colorways, the La Lucia is the brand’s best seller (and my personal favorite!). Below, check out seven Las Bayadas sure to improve any summer day.
