Villa Tunis is a dream that grew out of our life in our villa in a village southwest of Cairo, Egypt. Due to the unrest in 2013, we now live in south Florida, only a few miles west of Villa Tunis. Handicrafts in Villa Tunis come from the village or the souks of Cairo and reflect the 20 years of life in Egypt.

Fort Lauderdale History
Fort Lauderdale is named after a series of forts built by the United States during the Second Seminole War. The forts took their name from Major William Lauderdale (1782–1838), younger brother of Lieutenant Colonel James Lauderdale. William Lauderdale was the commander of the detachment of soldiers who built the first fort. However, development of the city did not begin until 50 years after the forts were abandoned at the end of the conflict. Three forts named "Fort Lauderdale" were constructed; the first was at the fork of the New River, the second at Tarpon Bend on the New River between the Colee Hammock and Rio Vista neighborhoods, and the third near the site of the Bahia Mar Marina.
