These all-natural flour-sack cotton towels are soft, absorbent, and infuse tropical flair to any kitchen or house. All of our tea towels are made with high quality flour sack cotton and printed with water based inks. Additionally, all towels are washed and pre-shrunk prior to shipping, allowing the size and shade of each tea towel to vary slightly, and making each towel unique. Each towel comes folded and banded, including a story relating to the art, per below: “As steady as the stars that guided them, Polynesian voyaging canoes plied the vast Pacific Ocean, searching for new worlds. Without modern instruments, ancient navigators relied on the sun and stars, ocean currents, swell patterns, and the activities of birds and sea creatures to chart their path into the unknown. Hōkūle'a, one of the brightest stars in the northern hemisphere, travels directly above the latitude of Hawaii, and was instrumental in finding the island chain. Use of these methods required constant awareness of your surroundings- you cannot know where you are unless you know where you came from.” Full size: (w) 18” x (h) 31” Folded size: (w) 4.5” x (h) 9” Printed on natural flour sack cotton towels.
