Each sold separately. Stylishly indispensable. Still used as towels in centuries-old hammams, or Turkish baths, these luxuriously soft and absorbent Five-in-One Tunisian Fouta Throws showcase an award-winning textile design. Hand-woven by Tunisian artisans on métier a tisser looms—a Tunisian craft tradition dating back to the 11th century—these generously sized Tunisian Fouta Throws also make chic wraps, towels, tablecloths or picnic blankets. 100% natural cotton yarns. Machine wash cold; tumble dry. Hand-loomed in Tunisia.
These stunning Tunisian Fouta Throws help preserve Tunisia’s ancient weaving tradition while recalling artisan textiles curated by our National Museum of African Art. The Smithsonian Institution’s African Art Museum exhibits the finest examples of traditional and contemporary art from the entire continent of Africa.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
