Coucke French kitchen towels are one of our most popular lines. Customers seem unable to order only one…With such a variety of motifs, graphics, and colors, it’s no wonder!

We are thrilled to introduce brand-new designs. We have new jacquard and terry towels, as well as new styles that are printed and honeycomb-weave designs.

A French household staple that is hard to find in the US, the bath mitt (gant de toilette in French) is a clever design for the bath. Slip the mitt over your hand, add water and your favorite French soap, and it will turn into a soft and non-slippery scrubber. Launder your mitt with your other bath towels, and it will outlast nylon poufs or gloves.

Anne de Solene is known for soft, high-quality bath linens made in Europe, including these long-staple combed cotton bath mitts. We carry them in 16 beautiful colors, from a basic white to a bright poppy red. Combine with our French soaps for holiday gifts, and don’t forget to keep a few for yourself!

La Lavande provides pure vegetable hard-milled soaps following the time-honored tradition of French soap making, beneficial for all skin types, especially dry or sensitive skin. Natural and pure, these soaps contain no petroleum or animal products.
