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 was launched in 1986 from one family’s desire to bring the finest French soaps to the United States. While teaching music in France, they were inspired by the variety and quality of scented soaps available. 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.
