We are so pleased to welcome Studiopatro back into the shop - we first introduced this beautiful line to our customers in our Granville Island shop! These exquisite linen towels are made in San Francisco and remind us of our years spent living there, where we learned to appreciate good food, wine and living.
Stripes are one of Studiopatro's favorite things. They are energetic, have endless design possibilities, and just make everyone smile. They're one of the reasons they love the work of architect Gio Ponti, a master of the stripe. His architectural, furniture and interior designs inspired this Ponti Tea Towel.
This printing on Oatmeal linen in Noir ink (almost black) pairs well with Ponti in Blanc.
This linen is durable, naturally resists dirt and stains, and is a stronger, more long-lasting fabric than cotton. It will stand the test of time through years of everyday use. Easy to care for, just wash in cool to warm water, air dry or tumble dry on low and remove while damp. Ironing is totally optional - your choice!
Studiopatro handprints each towel one-by-one using water-based inks, working in small batches in San Francisco. They pay attention to the details, and each piece is tied with a twill ribbon and a wash + care tag. (We even think this one would be lovely framed and displayed.)

Linen Wash and Care Instructions
- Machine wash in cool to warm water.
- Use a mild detergent, no bleach.
- Line dry or tumble dry on low heat; remove while still damp.
- Ironing is optional. Some people prefer linen crisp and flat, others like it soft and natural.
