Odd Dot Linen Tea Towel

$ 28

Oddly random, lots of fun.
Odd Dot started by accident. We were testing ink colors using dots on our Oatmeal linen and the casually arranged dots fell into place playfully. After more intentional tweaking, we came up with the Odd Dot: an apparently-random exploration in composition that is just fun to look at.

Linen makes the best kitchen towel - it's durable, ultra-absorbent, naturally stain resistant, and is stronger than cotton. And it's easy to care for! Just machine wash in cool water and air dry or tumble dry on low, removing while damp so you don't have to iron. Then it's ready to use again and again. 

Our towels are handprinted one-by-one using water-based inks that integrate into the texture of the linen when washed. Each piece includes a twill corner ribbon on back for easy hanging.

This printing on Oatmeal linen in Noir ink pairs well with the HAND + DISH Towel Set and Cool Tools, as they use the same material and ink.

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.
