With a simple rustic beauty, these tea towels made from 9.1 oz sqyd pure eco linen canvas with stripes have the density needed for everyday use. Very absorbent, they are also perfect for adding a touch of farmhouse style to the kitchen. They will also fit in well with the industrial genre or in the student apartment. With their stripes reminiscent of grain sacks, they also retain the pleasant smell of fields and crops. They will be a favorite for those who are obsessed with stripes or those who swear by raw, “organic” materials. The linens are simply edged at the ends while leaving the pretty selvedges as is.
When washed and shrunk, this linen measures 16″-17″ (41-43 cm) wide. It is woven using a different size yarn 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 are about 16″x28″ (41×71 cm).
They come in two choices of black stripes, blue stripes or natural stripes.
