Bali Blue, Rio de Janeiro

Bali Blue, Rio de Janeiro

What to buy here: CANGA: Often sold by mobile vendors working Rio’s sandy strips, the canga, a beach towel that can double as a sarong, has become local postcard that comes in a variety of dazzling and colorful patterns. Inspired in the Balinese style, cangas have replaced beach towels since they are made in smoother, suppler fabrics such as viscose. Sometimes known as ‘saídas’, two of the most popular patterns pay homage to the Brazilian flag and the black and white slithering design of Rio’s stone promenades. If you go for the ones sold on the beach, they will cost between US$10 and US$15 and the quality is good. If you’d rather buy one from a shop, head to Bali Blue. In business since 1990, the brand is heavily inspired by Tropicalism and Brazil’s exuberant fauna and flora. It was founded by a former navy officer who upon visiting Bali for the first time, thought the Southeast Asian island’s style would travel well in laidback Rio. Address: Rua Santa Clara 33, Units 301/303. Tel: (21) 2256.8369. Open Mondays to Fridays from 9:30am to 6pm and Saturdays from 10am to 1pm.

Prices vary but the most simple patterns costs as little as $10.
