  • Product Details
  • Fun Facts
    • Each towel is 100% cotton and measures 22" x 30". 
    • CARE: Machine wash with warm water on gentle cycle. Do not use bleach or fabric softener. Wash dark colors separately. Tumble dry on low heat. Remove while still damp. Use a steam iron as needed. 
    • The Cape Gooseberry is a close relative of the tomatillo, a staple of Mexican cuisine. 
    • The fruit, a member of the nightshade family, is mildly sweet when ripe (and toxic if eaten unripe). Similar in size to a cherry tomato, the fruit contains edible seeds that give them a slight crunch. The taste is described as similar to a tomato with a finish of tart cranberry.
    • The term "tea towel" originated in England in the early 19th century and was the linen of choice for Victorian ladies. They often used tea towels to ensure that their expensive teaware wasn't broken by a careless servant.
