These shadow and huck woven kitchen towels are a generous size with a large lace field and dye work to mask kitchen stains. Organic cotton gives a soft loft to the cloth while linen is crisp, absorbent and hard working. Since these kitchen towels are of a generous size they can be used as such or as small table runners, baby towels, side table runners, hair towels or anything you can put your mind to!
