We believe that the most-used item in your kitchen deserves both utilitarian strength and timeless style. Our Beekman 1802 "Keeps on Ticking" Kitchen Towels are handwoven heirlooms intended for every-day use. Both designs are inspired by early mattress ticking designs: "Light Stripe," and "Cross-Stripe." ¬†The Cross-Stripe towel is 80% cotton and 20% linen. The Light Stripe towel is 100% cotton, and can be machine washed on gentle, and tumble dried. The "Light Stripe" is woven in a twill structure, thus is a slightly thicker cloth. Color: Natural with Beekman Deep Charcoal Stripe.
