Flour Sack Tea Towels: Queen Anne's Lace
One of the things I remember from summer print internships in Maine is the abundance of Queen Anne's Lace, blossoming in late summer across the open fields and in gardens everywhere. This big and thirsty towel calls to mind the beauty of this flower. It's just about 29" square. 100% flour sack cotton; machine wash cold and tumble or line dry. You can iron them if you'd like, but we like ours a little wrinkly. These towels are loomed in Pakistan and hand printed in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Pair this towel with our Queen Anne's Lace sponge cloths for a heartfelt gift. The sponge cloths are the same pattern, but printed in Dusty Rose.
These cotton flour sack towels are screen printed by hand by the artisans at Kei & Molly Textiles there in the high desert and we love their woman-owned company for more reasons than we count: they use eco-friendly inks in their shop and filter waste water to keep pigments out of their local water system; they operate almost completely on solar power; they create good jobs for immigrants and refugees in their community and sponsor the Kei & Molly Scholarship for immigrant students at their local high school. Theirs is a company driven by love, and that, we think, is the best way to run a company.
