LAS DALIAS IBIZA: THE VERY BEST OF THE HIPPY LIFESTYLE SINCE 1985

Born as a roadside bar in 1954, Las Dalias became a reference for entertainment and a meeting point for locals and tourists by the late 60s in Ibiza. In 1985, the art gallery owner Helga Watson and the founder’s son decided to adapt the garden, to open a five-stall flea market featuring hand-made products by young European and North American craft workers. This was the birth of today’s flea market concept.

The market nowadays counts on more than 200 stores with many original handmade products, more than 30 years of success, and more than 350 families involved. Las Dalias has always worked with very special emphasis on the promotion of Ibiza’s traditional culture, but the market also embraces the new technologies and ecommerce with a beautiful on-line shop. At shop.lasdalias.es, now you can get fashion, crafts and Cool-Foutas, the best artisanal hammam Fouta towels, from Las Dalias Market in Ibiza to your home.

Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for Spring 2014 is going to ensure another beautiful year of flowers all blooming.

WHAT IS A FOUTA?

Leave a comment

The Fouta is a traditional Tunisian cloth which was originally designed to cover and dry the body at the Hammam or Turkish bath; it is highly absorbent and soft, gaining in smoothness after every wash. Foutas can be used inside or outside, on the beach as a sarong or beach towel, in a picnic, or in the house as a cover, tablecloth…

Our Cool-Foutas are made with 100% natural cotton and hand-finished by Tunisian artisans.

They can be machine washed and theirs colours do not fade.
