Flour Sack Tea Towel (Set of 3)
+ $ shipping surcharge
A kitchen is only as good as its basics.
Like a good white button-up shirt in your wardrobe, these oversized cotton flour sack towels are an indispensable basic for your kitchen. You won't be afraid to use them over and over (and you will): drying lettuces, wiping up spills, carrying hot pots, covering soaking beans, and drying dishes (we've always preferred drying duty to washing... how about you?)
"These are like the perfect pair of blue jeans for your kitchen: You'll reach for them everyday, and they'll get better, softer, with use." —Kenzi Wilbur, Managing Editor

Care & Notes -
The more this towel is washed, the softer it becomes. Cold or warm water wash (up to 110°). Use a mild detergent—no bleach, please! Line dry or tumble dry on low heat; remove while still damp. We don't recommend ironing, as these towels do their job better when unpressed. Approximately 5% shrinkage will occur with the first wash.

San Francisco, CA
The meeting of form and function is an important aspect of all our kitchen tools. For Studiopatró, it’s their raison d'être. They create products that are beautiful (hand-printed, fine European linen) and practical (strong, laundry-safe, and they soften with use). And each piece is made with ecologically friendly materials. Because Studiopatró doesn’t believe you should have to compromise -- and neither do we.View Full Profile
