The multi-functional fouta

Are there any more practical and beautiful textile than the traditional Tunisian “Fouta”? Useful in so many ways, no matter which time of the year it is. We use them as towels, blankets, and sarongs (excellent to carry along on the trip). The bigger ones we use as bedspreads or cloths and when we went skiing up north at my mother’s place we even wore them as scarfs.

Our foutas in the shop is hand woven and designed by my friend Anna Backlund/House of Rym. I love them all, but maybe “Remebering the Tartans” (top and bottom in this post) is in the lead at the moment.
