Textiles | Kitchen Linens
A variety of reusable household textile products made from high quality hemp fiber, including coffee and tea bags, drink sleeves, table linens, washcloths and bath products, garden gloves, hats, yarn and twine.
A variety of useful aprons for adults and children, in designs you won’t find everywhere. Included are the basic standards plus a loose pinafore with pockets, a japanese smock, and an artist tunic with or without long sleeves. Organic hemp or linen that is sustainably grown, produced, and dyed. All pieces are handmade to order.
Though the name says “woolen mill,” today Amana makes and sells high quality 100% cotton products for the home: blankets & throws, table and kitchen linens. Plus heavy duty totes made from reclaimed cotton yarn and fabric with full grain leather handles. “We are a community of families, farmers and artisans that are nearly as old as Iowa itself. Quality craftsmanship isn’t a coincidence, it’s second nature. Our textiles are woven in the same building that was first used more than a century and a half ago…The exacting methods used today were brought from the old world by Amana’s first settlers, while the pioneering spirit of those first families continues to drive new innovations.”
Simple, colorful kitchen linens, “big + handy, elegant + everyday, fresh + modern.” Aprons, towels, napkins. “Our linen is the finest medium-weight linen available, and is naturally sustainable and luxurious. We test for absorbency and sturdiness, and these aprons and towels work beautifully. They remain strong and actually get softer with lots of use. Each tea towel is handprinted one-by-one, using ecologically friendly water-based inks.”
A unique collection of cotton and linen kitchen linens inspired by the deep-rooted tradition of Japan to create beauty in the everyday rituals of life. Cloth napkins and kitchen towels have a myriad of uses, aprons are designed for function as well as protection. Cloth lids to cover dishes and utensil rolls to carry your own are among the other lovely reusable and renewable items to help you live a plastic-free life.
Oh wow! Here you can just replace much of the disposable paper/plastic in your house with reusable organic linen—paper towels, coffee filters, sandwich bags, facial rounds—and of course, towels and washcloths.
100% linen towels for bath, kitchen, beach and travel. Why a linen towel for your body? Fast drying, exfoliating, absorbent, antibacterial, long-lasting, and they just get better with age. 90% unbleached, undyed fibers with 10% colorful stripe. “When I found myself washing three full loads of cotton terry towels each week for a family of four, we tried linen bath towels. For the first time, my children reused their quick-drying towels, reducing the bath towel laundry burden to under one load a week.”
Plain and simple 100% linen towels, tablecloths, placemats, napkins, aprons, in natural linen color and darker grey. Handmade in Colorado.”Most items are made one at at time and are hand cut, sewn, washed and air dried with great attention to detail and pride in craftsmanship. The end result is soft, clean linen that will not shrink further and is ready to use.”
Big aprons that really cover made from cotton or linen. Plus “gathering” aprons to wear into the garden, some with big pockets for vegetables, one with twelve individual pockets for gathering a dozen eggs :-). Also linen Christmas stockings!
Beautiful, simple products for daily use made from linen. Created by a Japanese designer, the pieces have a an Asian sensibility, made from western fabric. They have everything from table and kitchen linens to bed linens and bath towels, plus loose linen clothing and even linen slippers! Mostly neutral colors, some patterns, some colorful surprises. “We just want to design and distribute an honest, beautiful, and long-lasting product. Our motto: Live with linen. Every day.
A small collection of simple linen napkins, dish towels, drawstring bags and aprons, mostly made-to-order. But the great thing is the linen comes in colors, so you can mix and match fabrics and threads to make your own unique napkins. They have a purple linen that took my breath away.
Linen aprons in various colors and styles.
Lovely organic washable linen household items, mostly the natural color, but woven in patterns I don’t often see. Mostly tablecloths, but also blankets and towels of various sizes, including bath towels.
Rustic textured 100% linen made into products for kitchen, table, bedroom and bath. “Simple, natural, comfortable.”
Handcrafted housewares made from certified organic cotton using vintage patterns: pot holders, coasters, wash cloths, scrub clothes. “As a young girl I lived in a small fishing village on an island in the Azores. My mother had very few opportunities to make money because culturally she was expected to stay home and provide free labor to support the family. Her only source of income was embroidery…When I married and became a homemaker myself, my mother-in-law introduced me to knitted dishcloths she received from her cousin Claudia, better known as “Toockie”. I very quickly became dependent on these “Toockies” to clean my home, my kids and my car. Soon I started thinking everybody should have these amazing Toockies® that lasted for years because they out performed most of the disposable cleaning products I had to keep buying every month…I began to think about how I might start a home business, with the help of women who could use a bit of extra money like my mom did…”
Gorgeous handsewn 100% bedlinens made from four different weights of linen. Plus linen curtains, tableware, and some small things like little sachet bags. “I found this homespun, hand sewn linen pillow slip while I was clearing my grandmother’s cottage in Scotland. It was made by her great-grandmother, in 1840, and was in regular use for three generations. When it came to me I used it to store lavender. Years later, by good fortune, I found a natural linen with the same wonderful texture and feel, and I decided to make bedding in this simple, elemental tradition. I wanted the feeling of connection, appreciation of good materials and handiwork which is part of my heritage, as part of my everyday life . I hope you love it as I do. With care, it should last a hundred years.”
