What better than evergreens to adorn these eco-friendly, bio-degradable dishcloths? Save trees when you use these instead of paper towels to wipe down surfaces, from countertops to dishes. Made from a unique cellulose material, these cloths are firm when dry but soften when wet, holding many times their weight in liquid while remaining durable. When it comes time to replace your cellulose cloth, it is entirely compostable. With colored trees on one cloth and black and white on the other, Maija Louekari's "Spruce" pattern is perfect for the holiday season but is lovely any time of year.

I first used a dishcloth like this while vacationing in Finland and I knew I wanted one of my own, so imagine my delight when I found these from Marimekko! They work wonderfully AND look great. I love that they stiffen after a few hours of not using them but then soften up right away again under water. The trees on the one with color are a bit more pinkish/purplish than the photo indicates - not really red. I love them and they make great gifts!
