A place to retreat from the city's bustle and relax among nature's beauty, the cottage is an essential part of Finnish life; many pick produce and bake pies as part of the summer holiday tradition. Bring a cottage chic style to your kitchen any time of year with the Mansikka Tea Towel. "Mansikka" means strawberry in Finnish, and this cute cloth features nine rows of nine strawberries and a red panel across the bottom of the towel. Reversible, let the opposite colorway peek out when you hang this by its cloth tab or fold it over the oven handle. Made from an equal-parts linen and cotton blend by the "Masters of Linen" at Lapuan Kankurit's weaving mill in Finland, it will be just as functional as it is beautiful for baking, drying dishes and dressing up a table.
