Nada Dot Tea Towel

$ 28

Positively Negative.
While we try to stay positive, we always love a little negative space. This design exploration became "Nada Dot" because only the background is printed and becomes its own pattern. Do you see dots, or do you see the background shapes?  It's an eye-catching puzzle.

These pretty periwinkle towels are as fun to look at as they are easy to care for. Our linen is durable, naturally stain resistant, and stronger than cotton. It will stand the test of time even with years of everyday use. Wash in cool to warm water, air dry or tumble dry on low and remove while damp. Ironing is optional, but if you let it air dry, you should be able to skip it. ;)

We handprint each towel one-by-one using water-based inks, working locally in small batches. Each towel also has a twill ribbon loop on the back for hanging.

- 100% oatmeal linen, printed with Periwinkle ink
- 18" x 26"
- Designed and made with care in San Francisco

 

Why Linen
  • Linen is wonderful and luxurious. It’s one of the easiest fabrics to care for.
  • The smooth and long fibers of linen help resist dirt and stains.
  • It gets better with age and softens the more it is washed.
  • Linen absorbs water quickly and dries quickly.
  • It is durable and strong, lint-free and resistant to pilling.
  • Linen can withstand high temperatures.
  • It is inherently eco-friendly. Flax has a short growing cycle, is quickly renewable, and every part of the plant is used.
Linen Wash and Care Instructions
Tea Towels
  • Machine wash in cool to warm water.
  • Use a mild detergent, no bleach.
  • Line dry or tumble dry on low heat; remove while still damp.
  • Ironing is optional. Some people prefer linen crisp and flat, others like it soft and natural.
  • Dry thoroughly before storing.
  • We encourage you to use your tea towels daily and enjoy the patina that comes with age!
Aprons
  • Machine wash in cool to warm water.
  • Use a mild detergent, no bleach.
  • Hang to dry, or tumble dry on low heat and remove while slightly damp. There is very little to no shrinkage when washed this way.
  • For natural or colored linen, it’s best not to hang in bright sunlight to avoid fading.
  • Ironing is optional, and much easier to do while your apron is still damp. Use a hot iron with plenty of steam or a spray of water.
  • Store in a dry, well-ventilated area. Well-cared for linen aprons will last for generations.

Stains

  • Remove stains with soap and water while still fresh, before they dry.
  • Pre-soaking in mild detergent is very effective in lifting stains.
  • Never use chlorine bleach which may damage the fibers.
