Castle of the Sun

Castle of the Sun

SKU: 096

This Fouta is handwoven to near perfection on an old manual wooden loom in the coastal city of Mahdia in Tunisia. This is one of two Foutas from the "OASIS" collection that is made using terry cotton, a first for us! The texture is almost towel-like, making it thicker and slightly heavier than our other Foutas.  It is even more absorbent, like other terry cloth, but still dries very quickly. 


Castle of the Sun will make you feel like you're diving into the sunshine. Named after one of Tunisia's most important mountain oases, Chebika, this is a very special piece that can be used as a shawl, a little blanket, or a perfect towel that's not quite a towel. It will get softer and more absorbent with every wash. The white stripes are made in a classic cotton yarn plain weave, giving the Fouta a fun double texture. 


We only made a few of these, so don't wait to get the sunniest Fouta from this collection.
