Toiles de cuisine. Dish towels made in France.
Strong, undyed linen yarn of a fineness
of Nm 6 is used to produce these robust
dish towels, which are woven in
plain weave; the edges, with their checkered
design, have been Jacquard woven.
The weaving mill that produces these
towels has had its premises in Armentieres,
on the border to Flanders in the
heart of one of the most traditional flaxgrowing
regions in Europe, for more
that 100 years. Charvet specializes in
the production of fabrics out of linen
and cotton; to their product range belong,
amongst others, the robust linen
from which previously French working
wear (e.g. the “Vareuses“ or pea jackets
for fishermen) and utility wear for bakers
(bakery towels) was made – not
only that, but also dish towels.
