Fouta Towel and Blankets

A fouta is a piece of fabric with fringes at the ends. Usually foutas are made of cotton. They can also be found in synthetic fabrics (which we don't recommend) or linen. A linen fouta will be more chic than a cotton hammam towel, but linen does not match cotton when it comes to the softness of the fabric.

The fouta is a staple in bath house culture. Originally from Tunisia, it was and still is used for hamam visits. Today we can find foutas everywhere. Men and women still bring a fouta when visiting a hammam. Foutas are everywhere in Tunisia. You can see foutas hung in doorways to keep the flies out.

Our foutas are hand woven by Tunisian artisans they can be used as elegant beach or bath towels, wraps, pareos, sarongs, throws or blankets 

A blanket is a piece of soft cloth large enough either to cover or to enfold a great portion of the user's body. It is usually used when a person goes to sleep or is otherwise at rest. It traps radiant bodily heat that otherwise would be lost through convection, helping to keep the user warm. Many children and adults use a blanket as a comfort object.

During the day, Tunisia can become extremely hot during summer but at night and winter many parts of Tunisia have very low temperatures. For those cold nights and months of the year, a woolen blanket is a must. They are traditionally used as a cover for beds or to cozy up on chilly evenings.
