Take me on vacation!

Our don’t-travel-without-it towel folds up neatly to tuck in your suitcase or back pack for a vacation or day at the beach. These towels are incredibly multi-purpose. For the last 9 years Penny and I have not gone anywhere without one. In Africa we use our towel to wrap up in during the long flight. We use them as blankets to sit on. As shawls on cool evenings. A towel and hand towel are used everyday in our hotel bathroom. Because they are absorbent, generously sized and dry so quickly, they are our go-to travel pieces. Below is a photo of our Omo towel/hand towel collection. Go to products and click on towels to see all of our offerings. Your customers will treasure them.

Omo towel and hand towels in gold, blue, sea foam green, gray, tangerine and raspberry.

Beautiful, sustainable Linen scarves and wraps are new this season

We are thrilled to offer this line of linen scarves and wraps for the 2017 spring/summer season. Our fine linen is sourced from Eastern Europe and hand woven into light and lovely scarves and wraps that have bountiful body. Give us a call or email us to place your order.

Linen is a luxury fabric because it is so labor intensive to produce. It is not at all elastic so weaving with linen thread is very difficult. But the end result is a product that will last forever with a natural texture that is stunning.
