Garnier-Thiebaut Caterina Ltd. Commemorative Kitchen Towel 22x30"
We celebrate our 14 years in business with this beautiful tea towel by Garner-Thiebaut. French blue with a dash of yellow against an ivory background, it portrays our lovely 140-year-old building as repurposed by us! At a special promotional price, it's a great gift for fans of the store! 100% cotton, made in France. Pretty enough to show off; tough enough to use every day.
For over a hundred years, Garnier Thiebaut has been weaving some of the world's finest jacquards. These yarn-dyed woven damasks use indanthren vat dyes to preserve color fastness against the effects of the sun and detergent. Their colors and designs are unrivaled. Available in a variety of sizes and colors to fit most tables. Call us for custom-sizing or by-the-yard pricing. Please allow 4-5 weeks for special orders.
Washable and colorfast, your Garnier linen is all cotton. We recommend that before the first use, you wash it in cold water. Thereafter, it may be washed in warm water in a regular household laundry machine (140°F/60°C); it is treated with indanthren vat dyes before weaving to prevent discoloration from sun or detergents. You will be pleasantly surprised at how well it keeps its color even after many washings. To avoid shrinkage, we recommend that you wash your linens in cool or warm water and that you dry them on "air fluff" or other low-heat setting of your dryer, or hang them to dry. High heat will cause the fibers to pull together and if you dry the cloth on a high heat setting you can expect about 4% shrinkage. To remove a stubborn stain, you may use hot water, but we still recommend low or no heat drying. Do not bleach. You may iron it with a warm iron or do what the French do: smooth your tablecloth over your bed to allow it to air-dry flat.
