View our Febronie collection
A French-born brand, named after the founder ‘Febronie’ who set up the company in 2010, offering beautifully designed and high quality Foutas. Foutas, traditionally pieces of thin patterned cotton or linen, are widely used as hammam towels and more recently as lifestyle, holiday and home accessories. The Febronie range of foutas are inspired by the founder’s travels where she has met artisans and local craftspeople in countries like Tunisia, Turkey and Bali. The amazingly bright colours are handwoven on traditional looms from 100% natural cotton and make for an amazingly versatile holiday accessory.
Why we love Febronie:
At Sandy Toes we absolutely love a fouta as an easy alternative to a bulky beach towel, making packing much easier and also doubling up as an easy cover up for you or the kids. The vast array of beautifully bright colours that Febronie offers makes for a fantastic rainbow on the beach or by the pool.
