Our tea towels are proudly printed in Australia using 100% natural fibres: linen and cotton. Our 50/50 European blend feels fabulous, washes well and softens beautifully with age.
For a short while we produced cotton tea towels, but they never had the superior feel of linen nor washed as well.
Microfibre is a cheaper imported product made from non-recyclable plastics. Not only are microfibre tea towels and beach towels not recyclable (you can only re-create more plastic product), but there's evidence that suggests every time these towels are washed they introduce microplastics into the water and into the food chain. Before buying a microfibre product perhaps Google their harmful effects and then do the world a favour and stick to natural fibres.
