Eco-Friendly Cotton Hand Towel - Blue Handwoven Kitchen Towel - Blue and Multi-Color Woven Towel

Description

These handwoven towels are 100% cotton and very eco-friendly!

Each towel is constructed using a fine yarn as the warp, then, instead of using just that same yarn as the weft (the yarn that weaves through the warp threads) I add in hand tied thrums, the extra length cut from every weaving warp. Thrums are usually tossed away, but I have developed this more earth-friendly option. I tie the thrums together into much longer lengths, then use them for weft alongside another untied version of the same kind of cotton yarn. This results in a nice strong weft with tufts of cotton and cheerful color changes.

Each of these handwoven towels is ideal for use beside any sink, be it kitchen or bath. They are richly decorative, nicely tactile, and extremely useful. All were woven on the same variegated blue warp and are predominately blue but with lovely accents of other colors. Each towel is similar to the next, but unique.

With the purchase of a towel from this listing, you will be receiving one of the towels found in the second picture.
