Our towels are 100% cotton, American made, light-weight, lint free, and approximately 28"x28". And all are screen printed by hand with water-based ink in our Denver, CO studio.

Care instructions: It's preferred you don't immerse the towel in bleach water, but if you find you have an especially ugly stain, a bleach pen can work wonders. For best results, wash in cold, hang dry. But tumble dry is also acceptable.

A lovely little poem by William Carlos Williams that reminds us of the little notes we leave each other all over the house.
The font used is one we can imagine looks like it came almost fresh off of Williams' typewriter in his little note to his wife.

The poem reads:

This is just to say...

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

-William Carlos Williams

Screen printed in black on a flour sack towel, it measures 28"x28".
