Flour Sack Tea Towels: Artichokes
Let's get to the heart of the matter: Each time you eat an artichoke, do you, like I, wonder who possibly was the first person to even attempt eating one? I don't know, of course, but I sure am grateful for their willingness to experiment (and persist). If you, too, love artichokes, you'll love this big and thirsty towel. Kei & Molly & Company print it in variegated shades of green and yellow that really bring the illustrations of artichokes and citrus and basil leaves to life. Each towel is 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. Please note that due to the method of printing, no two of these towels will be alike: they will all have varying shades of greens and yellows, so the towel you receive may not look exactly like the one in the photo.
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.
