Are Spoonflower tea towels absorbent?

Yes, Spoonflower tea towels are made from ​​a blend of 55% linen and 45% cotton. This combination of natural fibers makes our tea towels uniquely soft, durable and highly absorbent. While undeniably pretty, you can also count on them to catch drips, dry dishes and clean up the counter with a lint-free finish.

Will the tea towel fabric soften over time?

Yes, our Linen Cotton Canvas fabric features a natural slubby texture and medium weight. With continued use and love, Spoonflower tea towels will soften and become even more absorbent and charming. We recommend a cool and gentle machine wash and tumble dry on low for the best results.

What color will the topstitching be?

Our tea towels are sewn with a folded hem to prevent fraying. When your order is created, our in-house sewing team will use either white or charcoal topstitching to best blend in with your chosen design.

Can I hang my tea towel?

Yes! Spoonflower tea towels are easy to store and display with a subtle white hang tab across the back corner. We also offer all of our tea towel designs as wall hangings. These come with wooden magnetic framing kits to turn your favorite tea towel designs into amazing wall art.

Imagine the Possibilities

The first tea towels date back to 18th-century England where they were used to serve ceremonial tea and dry fine china. Today they're still used to wipe, clean and polish, but Spoonflower's creative community of makers and shoppers have found tons of uses for them beyond culinary chores.

Wrap up exquisite hostess gifts, line shelves and drawers, decorate the guest bath or turn them into cafe curtains or wall art. Available in over one million designs from independent artists around the world, these tea towels are made to spark creativity and joy in every possible way.

Embrace Sustainability

Reusable kitchen cloths offer a stylish alternative to wasteful paper towels. Better for the environment from the get-go, all Spoonflower designs begin with ethically-sourced materials, including eco-friendly fabrics and inks.
