The original design for these hand/kitchen towels came from a Danish woman who would hand knit these along with other knitted kitchen textiles. Her granddaughter, Dorte, learned the technique from Grandma and carried on the tradition and so many people were requesting to purchase them so when Dorte could no longer meet demand, she found a supplier in India and now the same patterns are knitted on a loom with super soft 100% certified Organic cotton. The luxuriously soft yarn is impeccable and the array of colors is endless. You will find the quality is excellent. Perfect for wiping hands in the kitchen or bath and for drying surfaces or dishes. Wash before first use as surplus color may occur. Each one measures 12.5” x 18.5”.
