Handwoven towels are very versatile and make lovely hostess gifts that can be used to dress up a bread basket or a wine bottle or even serve as a table mat to complement a bowl of fruit while protecting the table.
Ann Robinson Textiles has been designing and weaving towels made of cotton and linen (cottolin) that offer a soft finish with a lovely, subtle texture. They are perfect for both the kitchen and bathroom and, for that reason, they are usually spoken for while they are still on the loom! Contact Ann with your choice of colors, and she will weave a set for you to give as a gift or to have for yourself.
Need a clever wedding gift? A handwoven 3-piece placemat set is your ticket: one for each, and one for the salt and pepper. When ordering larger quantities, consider complementing the patterned mats with solid colored mats to create a table that is interesting without being overwhelming.
