Fun Facts

We employ 100 wonderfully crafted local women that live around our craft shop in the old roman city of Leptis Minor-now it is called Lamta.  They are our master twisters, knotters and finishers. Most of the women are in there 70's and 80's but without there hands of time skills, we would be lost.

After all our textiles are woven, the yarn has to be twisted and knotted into hundreds of fringes that makes the fouta A FOUTA !  

We deliver the raw textiles to the  women and we receive back the super eco-friendly and ultra versatile fouta.

About Us



The traditional fouta/peshmetal throws are handwoven flat in the style of the hamman bath towels of Turkey

They are not only stylish and eco-friendly, but super absorbent, compact and lightweight. Fouta's are perfectly suited for everyday use as a wrap/shawl when traveling, a beach towel for its super absorbency( it does not retain sand), picnics, poolside or a beach blanket. 

For personal use, they are great as a bath towel in the home, at the gym, at yoga, the spa, camping/ hiking  and can be used  in your  home textiles such as chic and modern tablecloth, bed linen and throw covers. 

The uses for the fouta are endless and they are used by everyone, young and old.

The personal or family size throw is the perfect accompaniment for you and your family, making it one of the most versatile items you will have.

The fouta throw features 100% handwoven cotton, beautiful hand knotted fringe tassels, and is available in a generous range of colors and sizes. 

Throws becomes softer with repeated washing, increasing its absorbency.  We design all  our foutas  in the USA, and they are woven in our craft shop  in Tunisia.
