Words by MPDClick’s Home & Interior Editor.
For this week’s Design Focus of the Week we are inspired by soft furnishings and home accessory company Babooshe who are renowned for their beautiful foutas.
Traditionally used as towels in the hammams of Tunisia, Babooshe’s foutas are a chic and elegant lifestyle essential that can be used for both fashion and home decor purposes. Fans of the brand rave about the multi-purpose nature of the product, claiming that the foutas can be used as shawls and wraps for the beach, an alternative to bathrobes, a throw on chairs or as a decorative tablecloth.
Finished in the best quality cotton and a range of colourways, foutas are the perfect accessory to enliven any interior. In keeping with MPDClick’s autumn/winter 12/13 season overview Nation’s Rising, Babooshe combines values of luxury and sustainability with a strong sense of Arabic tradition. Its sophisticated colour palette incorporates vibrant shades from the Mediterranean, with highlights of classic camel, rose-tinted taupe, jewelled magenta and midnight blue.
With a wide variety of colours, textures, patterns and sizes, Babooshe recommend mixing and matching foutas to complement the consumer’s own style, home or lifestyle.
