MOTHER OF IN­VEN­TION

The Irish Times Magazine - - FRONTLINES -

Wind- whipped on Bally­bunion strand, hold­ing a baby and pla­cat­ing a tod­dler, Aimée Nolan had great dif­fi­culty help­ing her seven- year- old surfer out of his wet wet­suit (“Mum, I’m freez­ing”), not to mind pre­serv­ing his mod­esty (“Mum, please don’t drop the towel”). But her search for an all- en­velop­ing warmer- up­per didn’t yield any­thing be­tween small, hooded tow­els with side- splits, and large, big- brand pon­chos. So she in­vented Gan­zos, cylin­dri­cal tow­els with arm­holes and a hood, that cud­dle chil­dren while they change and keep them cosy af­ter a brac­ing beach ses­sion, a chilly swim­ming les­son or a muddy match. From a premium towel spe­cial­ist man­u­fac­turer in Bangladesh, the thick, gen­er­ously sized navy tow­els are avail­able in three sizes: small ( ages 4- 6, ¤ 28), medium ( ages 7- 10, ¤ 28) and large ( 10 to adult, ¤ 32). For or­der­ing and de­liv­ery see gan­zos. ie Joyce Hickey
