I created Bird-E Towels for my family after trying all the recommended fabrics for unpaper towels....flannel, microfiber (ick!), and I even tried woven cottons which just pushed the water around. I loved my floursack towels but they were really too big to replace paper towels. My hubby continued to buy cases of paper towels from our local warehouse club.
In my sewing studio one day, I had an 'aha' moment when I touched the 100% cotton fabric that I had purchased to make cloth diaper inserts for my baby girl (who is no longer a baby...how quickly time passes!) This type of fabric has been well-loved over the years because of the high absorbency. I'm sure women have been using this cloth as a cleaning towel for years. But...no one had cut them to paper towel size and used them as a paper towel replacement until I started offering them here on etsy…
