Foutas are widely used today in the occidental world as Turkish bath towels (hammam towels) or even beach towels, but can be used as a shawl, a wrap, throw, bedcover or even a tablecloth.
This 'Sur La Montagne' fouta is covered in a mesmerising mountains high and valleys low pattern. The fouta is a piece of patterned cotton or linen fabric used in many Mediterranean countries, originally from Tunisia. They were worn by both men and women, wrapped around the body while at the public baths in 19th century Syria.
These luxurious fouta towels are made from 100% cotton and are available in two colours, crafted using age old techniques by Tunisian artisans, who produce heirloom quality textiles in ethical and fair work environments.
Dimensions: 100cm x 180cm
Care: Machine wash cold, gentle cycle. Line dry or tumble dry low heat for a few minutes. They will develop the perfect softness and absorbency after the first two washes.
Designed by: Anna Backlund.
