馃枻 tools!
Do you have a favorite slotted spoon? A well-worn set of tongs? The best ice cream scoop? We cooks love our tools, and this tea towel commemorates the聽best of our聽trade.

Our linen is durable, naturally stain resistant, and stronger than cotton. It will stand the test of time even with years of everyday use. Easy to care for, just wash in cool to warm water,聽air dry or tumble dry on low and remove while damp. Ironing optional, but if you let it dry flat, you should be able to skip it. ;)

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

Why Linen
  • Linen is wonderful and luxurious. It鈥檚 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!
  • 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鈥檚 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.


  • 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.
