We've blogged about our love for the Hammam towels from Toast, but we've finally uncovered an online source that doesn't involve international shipping. Usually, we go for more fluffy towels, but these look like the perfect thing for summer. This towel is handmade in Tunisia in 100% pure cotton, woven on "metiers a tisser" the same way it used to be a thousand years ago, with handmade fringed edges. We love its versatility. It can be used as a towel to wrap yourself, a sarong, a sofa throw or even as a table runner. Another plus is that it incorporate our other current obsession — stripes!
