Classic Red Striped Tea Towels

March 26, 2020

Classic Red Striped Tea Towels

Reminiscent of antique grain sacks used in the 1800s, these stripes never get old. These towels are a treat for your hands and only get better with age. 

Linen is a sustainable fibre that has been used for thousands of years. It is known for its ability to withstand rubbing and repeated washings. With this blend of yarns you will get the durability and strength of linen along with the softness of cotton. These towels will continue to soften with each wash. 

Working with linen can be challenging at first and this pattern is a great way to dip your toes in!

There are lots of reasons why we are excited to be featuring crackle weave this spring! Crackle is an incredibly versatile style of weaving from a design perspective, allowing you to weave anything from intricate diamond patterns to chunky geometric shapes. But even though it can create some pretty fancy designs, crackle makes cloth that has substantial body and stands up to wear and tear. Crackle has us dreaming of beach towels, picnic blankets, decorative throws, and--of course--sewing up some beautiful tops from handwoven cloth.

We wish. Last week, Brianna Tosswill and I sat down in our separate studios to have a chat about A Tactile Notion, and more broadly how our creative practices overlap.
