Striped Kitchen Towel Set

Highly absorbant, homespun, fair trade, classic. The towels in the Striped Kitchen Towel Set are just the kind of towels you want working for you in the kitchen. The cotton fibers are woven into threads, which are then woven on a loom to create the flat cloth these three towels are cut from. Unlike modern factory-made homespun cloth, these are made the traditional way—by hand, then hand loomed by the artisans working with our fair trade partners, MESH, in India. The rough weave will pick up spills, and the classic teal stripe will keep up with the aesthetic in the most-used room of your home—the kitchen!
