Check, Please!
Before being popularized by a 1950s starlet, woven checkered fabric called Gamucha was popular in India and Malaysia as a drying cloth. That starlet was Brigitte Bardot, who wore a simple pink checkered dress for her wedding. Gingham has since made quite the splash in pop culture, and a gingham towel can wipe up a big splash in your kitchen! 

Practical + Versatile: this uber-practical-yet-chic cloth can be just about whatever you need it to be. It's a towel for drying hands, dishes, glassware, or it's a placemat!  Simply fold in half, et voilà! Toss it over your lap or tuck it into your collar to use as a napkin or bib. Wrap it around a cookbook or a bottle of wine to elevate any gift. I use one to wrap up my lunch. Little luxuries.

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!
  • 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.


  • 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.
