Our "fouta" towels, as they are called in North Africa, are handmade by women in Tunisia. The weaving of the towels and knotting of the tassels employ an entire community of older women who need to work from home. Each towel is hand loomed and each tassel hand twisted and then attached. Like Moroccan and Turkish cultures, these towels are traditionally used in the Hammam, or the spa. They are luxuriously lightweight and make the perfect beach towel, sarong or tablecloth--you decide!
