Last time I was in Paris, my bestie and I happened to pass an adorable, teeny tiny shop just off Isle St.Louis on the Rive Droit, selling shelf after shelf of beautiful striped foutas. I wasn’t sure exactly what they were but was so tempted to buy one or two for the 10 euro price advertised on the door. We were in a rush to get somewhere so we passed up the opportunity (sound familiar? Hello Berlin!). I later looked a bit more into just what a fouta is and I’m counting the days to get back to that shop and buy up more than a few!
Multifunctional and simple, a fouta is a beautiful way to bring French Mediterranean style into your home. I want to pick up a few for the beach, picnics and another as a table cloth or sofa toss.
What would you use one for?
