The perfect hostess gift, housewarming or omiyage (gift). Reminiscent of Hawaii's plantation era with Hawaii inspired designs. One of our favorites for sure! 

During the plantation days, flour was purchased in 100 pound sacks. Once the sacks were emptied, washed and bleached, they had a variety of different uses such as: kitchen towels, cleaning and polishing cloths, diapers and underclothing. They were even sewn together to make sheets and pillowcases in homes that could not afford regular bedding.

Since flour sack towels (100% cotton) are super soft, completely lint-free, absorb like a paper towel and dry faster than normal kitchen towels, they add sparkle to dishes, glassware, and windows. All the nubs, imperfections and shadings are characteristics of this fine towel. They are pre-washed, pre-shrunk and resistant to unraveling.

Hand-screened with water-based ink to retain its softness and absorbency.
