Why does linen make the best dishtowel?
Flax linen is one of the oldest natural fibers, made from the stalk of the flax plant. It has many attributes that make it an excellent dish drying towel. Linen absorbs 20% or more of its weight in water, for starters. It also sheds dirt very well and easily, and is naturally resistant to bacteria. The strongest of the vegetable fibers, Linen is two to three times stronger than cotton - and even stronger when wet, yet it softens on repeated washings and will last years.
Linen dishtowels love to be used! The material comes to life with repeated use, and gets softer and softer the more often it is used and washed (without losing any of its durability). 28”x 19”. Imported from France.
