Hand printed linen tea towel by Papa Totoro

This generous sized tea towel measures approximately 29 inches x 19 inches, complete with hanging loop.
These are handmade and printed by me at every stage. I cut linen from my large bolts of beautiful medium weight white linen, wash and sew each piece before hand printing it with my copper batik printing blocks.
I heat set the ink for permanence on each dish cloth individually by hand ensuring you have durable beautiful tea towels that will become softer and more beautiful wash after wash.

This pattern is a repeat ornate paisley and border I have printed free hand using the highest grade eco-friendly permanent indigo and rouge inks which I custom mix myself.

Cool wash to keep colours bright and iron on reverse.
To prolong the life of linen avoid tumble drying, instead hang to dry for a crisp finish, these towels dry quickly.

You will find that the ink on block printed fabrics such as this will initially have a slightly raised texture and feel upon the fabrics surface unlike other methods of printing. This gradually becomes smoother after being washed without any change to the fabric, inks stay just as bright and striking.

No two pieces are the same and subtle variations and imperfections in print are part of the charm and inherent qualities of being hand pressed and hand made.
