my scandinavian home: Give-away! Win a fabulous fouta

Give-away! Win a fabulous fouta

Monday, 27 May 2013

Since spring is officially in the air (here in Europe at least!) I have teamed up with Fouta De Val to offer you the chance to win a fabulous fouta. Fouta's are made in Tunisia from 100% woven cotton using traditional techniques. They measure 190 cm x 100 cm and are so versatile they can be used as a pretty tablecloth in the garden, a cool bed spread, a light towel for days out in the archepelego or a scarf for cool summer evenings. Choose from a whole range of spring colours or stripes or mix and match for a unique style. I'm sure you'll love foutas as much as I do!

The company has such great ethics too - foutas are more and more rare and out competed by mass-produced varieties of poor quality. By purchasing a Fouta de Val you're supporting the local craft tradition in Tunisia and the livelihood of many local crafts men and women. In addition Foute de Val pays a contribution to Sweden's Save The Children organisation for each piece from the Mahdia and Carthage range sold. We like!





 To win a fouta all you need to do is:

- Visit the Fouta De Val home page and choose your favourite fouta
- Leave a comment below stating which fouta you would most like to win and why

This competition is open to everyone, where ever you are! Please be sure to enter by Midnight GMT Sunday 2nd June 2013 so you don't miss out. The winner will be announced here on Tuesday 4th June. Spread the word! :)

  3. What a great giveaway! I would love the Haidra - svart / grå because I'm moving from the Netherlands to Sweden in three months and it would fit perfectly in my new apartment!

    I'm following my scandinavian home for several months and it was my main inspiration during decorating my new apartment where I live with my husband and 3-years old daughter. I love scandinavian design and all my interiors are almost finished. However, our bedroom is still plain and I'm looking for inspiration for decorating with colour. I think that minty Medina - mintgrön would suit it perfectly! Thank you for all marvelous posts and greetings from Poland!

  5. Hi. :) I'd love to win the Izza in marine blue. It would look amazing in my scandinavian inspired apartment and it definitely would keep me and my little adorable Maltese dog warm in a freaky weather like it's in Poland now. I've never heard of foutas and would love to own one. And by the way - I absolutely love the fact that Fouta De Val is so involved in helping the world. More companies should do that!

  6. I'd love to win the Jasmine in ocean green, because spring here is still a bit too chilly, to go out without a scarf. *e

  7. the raspberry red coloured Amina is so lovely :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. I want them all, actually:). They are gorgeous! If I had to pick one, it would be the grey one.

    ReplyDelete
  9. My girlfriend and I just moved in together in a small but cosy apartment. We frequently visit this website in search of some inspiration. Since it's still chilly here in Belgium this spring/summer, I'd be awesome to win a "Sahara - senapsgul" Fouta to keep us warm at evenings and nights (especially since the heating isn't working properly yet).

  16. I find Amina Green Mint absolutely gorgeous and love it so much because it reminds me of the waters of the Adriatic Sea in Sirolo, in the Marche Region (Italy).

  26. Izza - blue grey for me please. Will mach my new salvaged garden chairs (white timber) so well. these are all beautiful products, thanks for introducing them to us.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I had been told about the Fouta by a friend who lived in Tunisia for some years and raved about it, but I had some difficulty "seeing" the concept (shawl/table runner/bed throw - all purpose beautiful piece of fabric that she described).
    I can now understand it. They look sophisticated yet understated. Clean and minimalist, with ethnic influences yet incredibly modern. I am drooling for half of them, but my absolute favourite is the Amina in grey.
    I tend to go for dark, somber colours in clothing, in design I find myself attracted to all shades of grey and the subtle pattern in the grey Amina just makes me ... happy.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The bold minty freshness of the Carthage- natur/mint screams of a refreshing holiday, this would energise me every day. A great company for yourself, or friends and family presents and sustainable doing good all round. Love love! X

  30. I love your blog and I love these foutas! I will definitely put them on my wish list!! If I`m the very lucky winner I would choose Carthage - nature / pink, save the children Edition, because I feel strongly that each consumer sholud take a little bit of responsibility- and because it`s beautiful! :)

  73. First of all, I am delighted to be able to enter this giveaway since I am in the US and usually unable to partake.
    Asking to pick just one fouta is like asking to select the most beautiful flower. They are all gorgeous.
    Since I must choose just one, I love the Mahdia violet. It is marvelous that Save the Children benefits from the sale of this lovely throw. It would go perfectly in my bedroom as well.
    My outdoor space doesn't get direct sunlight. I can picture me enjoying a lovely but cool day with this fouta.
    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  74. All gorgeous and so hard to choose just one! I'm going with the Amina-Gray. Perfect for our deck, and our beach vacation this summer. Just beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  75. My favourite is the Amina in grey. I love the soft herringbone pattern and imagine wearing it as a large scarf on evenings in the summer.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Thanks again for this giveaway, it's very generous of you and it always makes me discover new design products. I start each day by visiting your blog and it is very inspiring. It's hard to choose a favorite one, but I think I prefer the Carthage - nature / red because of the contrast between the 2 colors and the fact that it can be used as a tablecloth or blanket.

    ReplyDelete
  85. hi!
    I would love the Amina in grey. I'd use it for the beach in summer, but I think that the colour and the woven herringbone pattern makes it a classic and thus etremely versatile and usable almost all year round. I can imagine it used as a tablecoth, over a monochrome bedspread or as a throw on my couch. The possibilities are endless and given the good quality, I could have it for years without getting bored...
    lucky me if I win!

  86. Wow-they are all so gorgeous! Thanks for introducting me to this-have never heard of fouta. I LOVE the Mahdia in violet...such a uplifting color, and I think I would use it as a blanket by the fire pit in the summer, and on the couch by the fireplace in the winter. It would be my grown-up blankie!!!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Oh I hope you get one too - they are just like this blog - simple, spare and beautiful. I love the Carthage in Natur/Mint because I imagine wrapping my little ones in it as they come out of the cold blue water to the grey rocky beach.
    Best,
    Merrilee
