Flour Sack Tea Towels: Mangia Bene
My Italian grandma always wanted me to Mangia, Mangia! but we'll improve on that and suggest you Mangia Bene ("eat well"). The cook pictured on this towel looks like practically every cook I've ever known: delighted to bestow joy upon those gathered around the table. Big and thirsty, 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. Grandma would approve!
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.
