Fouta: A Mediterranean Accessory

For men, women, children

Exquisitely stylish yet highly practical, the lightweight, absorbent fouta dries quickly, resists sand, and rolls up small enough to fit into your bag.

It is a:

  • Beach towel
  • Bath/Pool towel
  • Sarong
  • Baby Blanket
  • Tablecloth
  • Picnic Blanket
  • Travel Accessory
  • Shawl
  • Indoor/Outdoor Throw

The fouta is made of 100% cotton. It is an artisanal product with a rich history in the Mediterranean. It is made on semi-mechanic looms, its fringes hand rolled.

History

This elegant staple has existed for centuries and has now been given a new youth as a luxurious beach, home and travel accessory that is riding the fashion wave from the Mediterranean coasts to our shores.

It began as a hammam towel/sarong for men and women alike. As these cultures became more beach-going, the fouta evolved into a beach necessity, then home and fashion accessory.  Eventually, it developed into a design product, functioning both as a luxurious and a utilitarian object.
