fouta/hammam towels

Recently I came across the picture of a fouta towel (au lit fine linens) on House&Home's Kitchens and Baths magazine. They are also called Turkish hammam towels. These towels are so versatile and also can be used as beach towels, table cloths or wraps. Fouta towels are so visiually appealing, they have become my latest obssesion.

This picture reminded me of the images that I collected for my Pinterest's Bathroom board. I wanted to share them with you. Light cotton fringed and striped towels are available at online specialty stores, ebay and etsy. I would like to get my hands on these gorgeous towels. Take a look at the following pictures to see what I mean...

Eco bathrooms can have a very "zen" feel by using a lot of natural materials and textures.

A unique ladder as a towel rack is a cool idea.
