Fouta…Turkish towel…whatever you want to call it, it’s a must-have for your beach bag this summer!! We have been big fans of these über-chic textiles for years as they are super-versatile and beautiful all at the same time! It’s a towel, a blanket, a table cloth…a belle’s version of a win-win-win!
We have found them in various places, but just ran across a plethora of options practically on our doorstep at Gage’s on Augusta Road in Greenville! Take a gander…and stop in to pick up a supply!
A bit more colorful at $35
And full-on color splash with terry-backing and drawstring bag…$85
Options galore…all from Smyrna Collection. And we have a belle-bonus! Tiby…generous lady that she is…has offered 10% off to our readers!! Tell ’em the belles sent ya.
Might come as a surprise, but belles don’t always prefer puff and fluff. Take, for instance, bath towels. Now, mind you, we love soft, fluffy blankets and such, but when it comes to the everyday bath towel, we prefer function to fluff (who really needs a towel that is too large and fluffy to wrap around the freshly-showered body??…not these belles!)
We have found an excellent option in a quite unexpected place…IKEA!!
Although IKEA doesn’t sell the towels online, you can check out the options here. Take a look at the FÄRGLAV and the HÄREN…then use this as an excuse to spend the day browsing through the Swedish wonderland in person…a novel concept!!
