Our organic cotton herringbone weave tea towels are designed to be incredibly absorbent and durable. They make a stylish addition to any kitchen. The herringbone weave is a distinctive V-shape, getting its name because it resembles the skeleton of the herring fish. This makes the towels incredibly absorbent and perfect for drying dishes or spills in the kitchen.
Many of us don’t realise our tea towels are made out of microfibres, which are a kind of plastic. Every time you wash this synthetic fabric, millions of microfibres are released into the waters, these fibres are too small to be filtered out by waste treatment plants, so they end up in our waterways and oceans, where they wreak havoc on marine animal health and our environment.
These microplastics make their way into the bellies of marine animals, seriously harming not only our ecosystem but our planet.
How should I wash these tea towels?
Simply throw your tea towel into the washing machine on a hot wash. You can put your dishcloths into the tumble dryer but avoid fabric softener as it will reduce their absorbency. If your cloth has a smell, soak them in warm water with vinegar before you wash them.
