Irish Linen Trivet/Potholder

$ 42

Twice a year we collaborate with Heath Ceramics, creating textiles to match their seasonal collections. These limited-edition trivets are handmade with the remnants as we couldn't discard any of this beautiful Irish linen. The luxurious, heavy-weight linen is printed with a rich indigo ink and offers an elegant twist to an everyday kitchen essential. Each trivet is one-of-a-kind and will feature a striped or plaid pattern; what you receive will be a surprise, but we guarantee that it will be special and beautiful.

Cut, sewn and finished right here in our San Francisco studio, these pieces are made in small batches with care and meticulous attention to detail, and will last you for years to come.

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.
