When’s the last time you had an AHA moment? “AHA is the universal sound of discovery,” as it is put by the brand new website that’s making a big splash in the luxury shopping space. AHA is exactly what fell out my mouth when I discovered AHAlife; it was right before heading to a cocktail party the company hosted last week at their chic Manhattan office on Bond Street. Founded by Shauna Mei, a successful and wildly innovative New York entrepreneur, AHAlife.com is a breathtaking place to discover – and purchase – unique products from around the world. Since the website’s mid-September launch, one new product is launched every day, ranging from Greek superfood and organic beauty products to fur vests and exclusive digital cameras by Diane von Furstenburg. The online store is collectively curated by their group of influential tastemakers, resulting in a storyboard of diverse global inspiration.

Luxuriously large, each towel is hand-woven and finished with hand-knotted fringe. Read more about the Hammam Towels on AHALife.
