Our Blueprint tea towel is inspired by the cyanotype technique which dates back to the 1840s. This process was used to create ‘blueprints’ for use by engineers and now lends itself to adding these gorgeous shades of blue to our pure Italian linen range. The motifs shown on the collection have been inspired by nature, added using a mix of techniques such as hand-painting and block printing.
Add a touch of elegance
If you like your kitchen to look beautiful and attractive but also incredibly functional, then our range of Italian linen tea towels from the Blueprint range will add a touch of elegance and charm. Blue and white has always been a much-used colour combination, loved by many, particularly in kitchens and dining rooms. When on display, our cyan blue and white tea towels make carrying out everyday chores a pleasure, no matter whether your kitchen interior is ultra-modern or traditional.
Easy to care for
Our tea towels not only look stunning but are incredibly practical to use, being ultra-absorbable. Using the blueprint process, we add colour to the cloth using natural dyes. The shades of blue created are just like those seen during the cyanotype process, which is why you will see shades of cyan blue. Customers also love our Italian linen range of tea towels because it is so easy to care for; wash as many times as you like and forget about ironing. This is linen that gets passed down through families, losing none of its brilliant colour over time.
Because each Blueprint tea towel is made by hand, no two are ever the same. If you are buying a set or co-ordinating with our Blueprint tablecloths, remember that beauty is in the uniqueness of the print. The patterns and colours vary, resulting in a vibrant and stunning arrangement that makes the most of the colours of nature.
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.
