French Tea Towels

I'm a sucker for vintage tea towels, especially those that hail from France or England in the white and red hues, with a touch of monogramming from the family of years long past who so lovingly used them:

Dried dishes with them....
...... Carried hot pots with them..... Wrapped bread in them...
...as part of their every day lives....



Vintage homespun with red monogramming varieties ABOVE (Style HS2 $66/ea)


Vintage with touches of red and yellow or sometimes green (Style RC3 $25/ea)


Vintage white with uneven monogramming probably sewn by a loving grandmother whose eyes were starting to go (Style WW1 $25/ea)



Burlap with the right touch of red. Newly crafted by our friends at Cote Bastide in Aix en Provence (Style CBBurlap $22/ea)

When combined, a lovely creation is born:


Vintage French tea towel patchwork pillow w/down insert ABOVE($300); 18" square made from vintage French tea towel w/down insert BELOW($80)



All available now at VINTAGEWEAVE.COM

I love tea towels, too. The older the better, the more red the best. I make my sisters and my husband wait while I barter away every time in France at a flea market. I just sent you a private email on some I'm interested in. Thank you for this post!
