What is so special about Our FOUTA? Throughout history this towel(FOUTA: named by Pharaohs &Egyptians) was produced by hand weaving on wooden looms in A Small town located on the East bank of the River Nile in Egypt. In Pharaohs times the town was known as" Ipu” .This small town still has a thriving weaving industry that produces EGYPTIAN COTTON products since Pharaohs Ancient civilization of Egypt till now. These Artisans’ handmade textiles are of an exceptional quality, the result of a small scale, almost confidential production. Of course this craft is under a threat of extinction. Unfortunately the weavers have been hard-hit in recent decades as the proliferation of machines and their mass production capabilities made it nearly impossible for these artisans to compete in the textile market. Thus, the main goal of this venture is to protect the area's traditional hand-weaving methods and environmental friendly products while guaranteeing the artisans a steady income-generating source. Continuing to purchase these products directly affects the continuance of the existence of this traditional craft. We think that size and feel really matters! So we don't just have the BIG towel but all our towels are Hand woven with Natural Egyptian cotton making them soft to touch and relaxing to lay on. The quality of these towels speaks for its self. The FOUTAs are hand woven using Egyptian cotton & the Egyptian cotton is considered the crème de la crème of towel fabrics. The finish of the fabrics is smooth and soft, and is more than capable to withstand the test of time and chores, thanks to its high thread-count.
