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 and is made from non-recyclable plastics. Not only are microfibre tea towels and beach towels not recyclable, but there's evidence that suggests every time these towels are washed they introduce microplastics into the water. In fact Australia’s ABC News reported recently: “When it comes to plastic pollution on beaches, scientists say few of us realise the biggest threat — microfibres.”
So do the planet a favour and buy a good-looking, feel-good tea towel made from natural fabrics.
