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: We salute big wave surfing from it’s beginnings to today through the lens of Waimea Bay, a place with a sacred reminder of Hawaii’s mixed cultural history. In ancient times Waimea was known as “valley of the priests”, ruled by powerful Kahuna and flanked on both sides by hei’au (temples). As missionaries arrived with a new religion, the bay became home to the iconic Catholic Church you see today. And where past and present collide, the ancient Hawaiian art of surfing continues its reign at Waimea Bay, where perfect conditions create giant waves that lure the surfing elite of the world to this day.
