How you say it: KAHN-taa

Where they’re from:

Kantha Quilts, or simply kanthas, originate in Bangladesh and the eastern states of India, where women stitch together layer upon layer of old saris and tossed-aside cloth scraps to create thin throws used as blankets and cushions.

Fun fact:

Kanthas sport different patterns on each side, and who doesn’t love a good two-for-one deal?

Tunisian Towels

The word fouta is an Arabic word for tissue. In Tunisia  hammam towels are called foutas. Striped Fouta Towels are traditionally offered at Tunisian bathhouses.

The New York Times says foutas are “ large enough for one person to lie down on at the beach, but since they’re made most often of lightweight cotton and linen, they roll up tightly — perfect for tucking in a tote and taking with you. What’s more, they’re as absorbent as traditional terry-cloth towels, and they dry quickly, too.”

Whether you use them for beach, spa or everyday use you will find many practical reasons to keep a fouta with you always.

See our modern equivalents in a range of styles that all stand out for their quality and good looks. Each towel is luxuriously large and highly absorbent (the more often they are used, the softer and more absorbent they become). Focalpoint Fouta Towels are available in a variety of colors, each towel is woven from 100% Egyptian cotton and finished with a hand-knotted fringe.
