Kitchen or bathroom hand towel made from 100% recycled t-shirts.

By using recycled t-shirts, we’re able to create less waste, make use of discarded materials, and provide an eco-friendly alternative to all the cheaply and unethically made kitchen, bathroom, and home products currently on the market.

This product was inspired by our original smaller version of it - a hankie also made from upcycled t-shirts. T hat product we lovingly call a schmatta - Yiddish word for rag. But make no mistake, this is not a rag, but has the laid back ease of one and can be used for as many purposes. Use it in the kitchen or the bathroom or ... you'll find a way to make it work. In the Silk household, you won’t find a dishtowels or hand towels; you’ll find a basket of Big Schmattas.

The colors shown are color schemes we’ve designed, but contact us for personalized color set requests. Personalization option:  send us your own t-shirts from which we can make your own super-special personalized big schmattas.

Made in Pittsburgh upon order.  All items are one-of-a-kind, unique, and vary.  The photos shown here are just examples.  

Sold in multicolor bundles of 2. Specify a color set or we'll choose for you.

Set of 2.

Each is approx. 25" X 14"

About SilkDenim:
Louise and Sarah Silk are a mother-daughter duo making Art-You-Can-Use as a response to unsustainable 'fast fashion'. They deconstruct worn clothing and re-fashion the fiber into one-of-a-kind garments, bags, quilts, and home goods. They do it all by hand themselves in their Pittsburgh, PA studio. Through this process, they not only save the environment of excess material, but they also celebrate the beauty and authentic details of worn fabric. Inspired by the rust belt's history and Louise Silk's long time practice of making memory quilts, they transform discarded fiber into objects of value, practical use, beauty, and meaning.

These are awesome! Wonderful craftsmanship and they are great to use. Amazing design to slide your hand in the pocket. A funky way to stylishly recycle. Even my husband liked them! Can’t wait to purchase more. They would make great gifts!

I am so incredibly happy with this bag! It is very large and roomy, the way I love all my bags, and it really is very comfortable to carry. I have gotten many compliments for this bag. The bag was delivered promptly and I couldn't be happier.
