Towels cut from cotton flour sacks were once used for all kinds of household tasks but have since been replaced by a variety of towels, cloths and paper products.

Last year, we brought in a line of gorgeous flour sack towels that  quickly became a favorite among our clients.  With seasonal designs by artist Mary Lake-Thompson, they are as beautiful as they are handy.

Spring brought lovely market produce motifs, summer brought horses and floral patterns, while Halloween saw witches legs and dogs in Halloween costumes.  The Christmas towels are equally enchanting, with Santa holding a Christmas Tree, cardinals in ice skates, cows in red antlers and Christmas cowboy boots.  With vintage appeal, these towels simply put a smile on the face of anyone who sees them.

So what can you do with your flour sack towels?

  1. Drying the dishes – these babies are super-absorbent.
  2. Polishing glassware – they are lint-free.
  3. Covering rising dough – measuring 30″ x 30″, these are bigger than regular kitchen towels.
  4. Dusting – use these for a quick once-over when a Christmas guest appears at your door unexpectedly!
  5. Decorating – what better way to bring a big of holiday cheer to your kitchen?
