Our spa gift includes one handmade Tunisian towel (known as a "fouta"), one hand towel, and one Mediterranean Aleppo soap in a surprise mix of colors and scents chosen by our artisan team. Our Tunisian towels/foutas are a functional luxury that serve as a towel, shawl, throw, baby blanket, travel accessory, tablecloth, and more! Exquisitely stylish yet highly practical, the lightweight, absorbent fouta dries quickly, resists sand, and rolls up small enough to fit into your bag.

Your Impact
Economic Development

Balthazar & Rose is a social enterprise where every purchase helps provide 0% micro-loans to entrepreneurs in Africa and the Middle East through the nonprofit Kiva. The foutas (Tunisian towels) are made in Tunisia, the spark of the Arab Spring, with one entrepreneur’s desperate attempt to stand up to injustice. Winner of the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize, Tunisia is now a beacon of hope, yet their economy rests dangerously fragile. Providing micro-finance to entrepreneurs around the world matters, especially to those in poverty. Kiva has served over 2.5 million borrowers in 86 countries with over $1billion loaned.

Your purchase today provides opportunity for tomorrow in Africa and the Middle East.
