Matching perfectly with the Fleure Sauvage tablecloth, here we have a traditionally designed block-printed tea towel from the same range. Elegant and sophisticated to look at, this is a superb Italian hand-printed tea towel made using vintage Stamperia Bertozzi hand-carved blocks made from pear wood. An eclectic and fine mix of old and modern, the cloth is meticulously hand-printed using these rare wooden blocks. With no two being the same, the result is a tea towel that adds a real touch of class to your home linen collection. Whether you use alone in the kitchen or dining room or along with the Fleure Sauvage tablecloth as a set, these stunningly crafted linens will add style and panache.
Not only is the pattern applied via the wooden blocks using dyes made from natural minerals and vegetables, but the colour will not fade. Because of the way that they colour is applied and set, no matter how many times you wash, you will not lose this gorgeous pattern. The linen is hand-woven on looms; a process which is slow but very worthwhile. Once the linen is ready to work with it is cut and then has the block pattern applied, finally being stitched by hand. The craftsmen rely on the processes created by Italian designer Stamperia Bertozzi, using a mix of steam and water, all driven by solar power. The result is a range of linens that are not only highly desirable but that provide long-lasting durability as well as being ecological sensitive.

Since 1920, the Bertozzi family have been creating the most wonderful hand-printed and hand-painted fabrics. Using traditional techniques, these master craftsmen hand-carve blocks of pear wood to produce the stamps they use to print their own designs onto the fabric. The rich and vibrant colours they create come from closely guarded family recipes that are passed from generation to generation.
Variations in finish or appearance are not considered imperfections, but are the mark of a unique handmade item.
