Fittingly named Harvesting (Sadonkorjuu), this design by Elina Helenius features onions, peas, carrots, and other garden goodies. Let this inspire you to use fresh produce in the kitchen, where it will serve useful in drying hands and dishes as well as lining bread baskets. It can even be framed as textile art, or simply displayed by the hanging loop or folded over and oven door handle. The white and coppery cinnamon-colored threads give the backdrop a soft pinkish-beige appearance from afar, and a closer look reveals the beautiful detail. Made from a blend of bio-organic cotton and linen in Finland, it is woven with quality and expertise. In fact, Lapuan Kankurit is the only Scandinavian weaving mill qualified to use the European 'Master of Linen' logo on its products because of the fine materials and refined skill put into each product.
Care: Machine Washable. Follow instructions on tag.
Four generations of weavers unite to create the heritage-strong brand of Lapuan Kankurit, currently ran 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 Kankuri... More Lapuan Kankurit
This is a beautiful tea towel, organic cotton and linen. It is both elegant and sturdy. In my house, I do not have purely decorative tea towels, but Lapuan Kankerit towels would be an excellent finishing touch or a gift. Made in Finland, this is an excellent product, and a classic Scandinavian item though people may be more familiar with Ekelund linens. In my humble opionion Lapuan Kankerit is even better it terms of quality, and I don't mind that the designs are a bit more austere. I'm happy to be able to order it domestically, especially as I cannot currently travel to Finland!
Quality and materials, plus excellent packaging and shipping.
