Tunisian handicraft is commonly known by its authenticity. Each piece is made with considerable precision but above all, with great passion. In fact, our handicrafts are realized by Tunisian artisans that are really passionate about what they do, and who learned it from father to son.
We can even say that Tunisian handicraft is one the country’s greatest wealth, a wealth of know-how, of history and most of all, of traditions. Artisans have a very difficult job, as they need to be precise, patient and meticulous. Some creations can take whole days, but the result is always stunning.
The Tunisian fouta has always been part of Tunisian’s culture. It was used by Tunisian women to go to the Turkish bath houses known as hammams.
The fouta was made by Tunisian women who took the time to realize each piece by hand, and this could take more than 2 or 3 days, depending on the model and the size. Until today, the Tunisian fouta is widely used, and in many ways. It has even become an essential accessory, especially for young people.
During summer, many people use foutas as a bath towel at the pool or the beach. It can also be used as a protection for mattresses, a tablecloth or it can simply be thrown over a chair or a sofa as a decoration.
Also, the fouta is very thin and light as it is made from lightweight cotton. La Megara’s foutas are 100% made of finest quality of cotton, and are easily customizable. In fact, you can choose the size, the color, the patterns, etc. These foutas can be founded in more than 500 stores in the US.
Olive wood is highly appreciated due to its veins that give an aesthetic specificity to some kitchen utensils.
Also, olive wood is very resistant, and the older the olive tree, the richer is its texture. For this specific reason, olive wood accessories are in high demand all over the world.
