Flour Sack Tea Towels: Migration

  • 1400

Migration is a major event, whether it is birds or butterflies flying vast distances, whales swimming across oceans, or humans in search of a better life. These towels honor this great pull of life... but even if you don't notice their message, they are also just plain pretty. 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. Two 2-tone colors to choose from: light/dark blue and yellow/orange.

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 (hence this towel design) 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.
