Our blue striped tea towels are offered in a choice of two different patterns. Made from a 310 gsm – 9.1 oz/sq. ft. pure eco linen canvas, they are highly absorbent and perfect for large dishes and anything that requires a higher level of absorbency. The texture, stripes and rustic beauty add a touch of farmhouse style to the kitchen. They will also look great in an industrial setting or in the student apartment. They will be a favorite for those who are obsessed with the striped pattern reminiscent of grain bags or those who swear by raw, “organic” materials. Plus, they’ve retained a distinctly natural, field and harvest smell. The cloths are neatly tucked in at the ends while leaving the pretty selvedges as is. They come with a loop for hanging.
When washed and shrunk, this linen measures approximately 17″ wide (41-43 cm). It is woven using a different size thread for the warp and weft. This means that the shrinkage occurs differently in length and width and produces slight waves on the selvedge side that do not fully resolve when ironed. To say that this canvas represents the perfect of the imperfect is the best way to describe it.
The tea towels measure approximately 17”x28” (41×71 cm).
