Foxes and owls and bears, oh my! Fun, forest-dwelling animals live on the Lapuan Kankurit Metsäpolku Green/Black Tea Towel among leafy trees and sprouting mushrooms. Bring your kitchen to life when you cover warm pastries or dry dishes with this towel, or use it as a table linen for some woodsy dining décor. Expertly woven from cotton and linen by the 'Masters of Linen" at the Lapuan Kankurit mill in Finland, the high quality of the towel's natural fibers can be seen and felt in its texture. Meaning forest trail in Finnish, the Lapuan Kankurit Metsäpolku Green/Black Tea Towel will bring a cozy cottage feel to any home.
Care: First wash separately in abundant water. Gentle spinning. Reshape and iron whilst damp. Linen shrinks about 5%.
Price is for one towel
Four generations of weavers unite to create the heritage-strong brand of Lapuan Kankurit, and it is now run by Esko Hjelt and his wife Jaana. The family business began as a wool and felt boot factory in 1917 creating quality wool textiles. Today, the same heart and soul goes into Lapuan Kan... More Lapuan Kankurit
The tea towel is exactly like the one I bought from a vendor in Tallinn. Estonia, last year; friends admired mine so much that I bought this one as a belated wedding gift surprise for them. FinnStyle got it to me in record time, so I'm very pleased with both item and service. Sorry to have missed out on the sale price, however.
Love the reversible design

Wonderful dark animals depicted in a forest green setting, with the opposite on the other side-- green animals against a dark background. In weaving, we call this flip flop duality "Summer and Winter" -- one side light, the other dark. Skillful technique... and families of hedgehogs, too!
Folkloric and friendly critters add a natural, woodsy touch to wherever you need to wipe your wet hands. These linens are fun, clever, and heart warming with their love of animals.

A thick and substantial towel that has a beautiful weave.
