This white cotton huck kitchen towel is hand embroidered with a classic design in warm, autumnal shades. A traditional folk design, this has a contemporary freshness that adds cheer to any kitchen. Perfect as a hostess gift!

Huck embroidery, or Swedish weaving, is a style of embroidery that dates back at least four hundred years and was prevalent across Europe. Repeating geometric motifs are common, and the embroidery is worked in such a way that there is nary a stitch or a knot on the back! If you look at Picture Two, you'll see that the back of the towel is pristine white. This takes a special kind of skill.

A sturdy cloth is necessary, and it comes woven in fifteen-inch widths with a wide selvage on both sides. The top and bottom of the towel are hemmed to prevent raveling. This towel is pure, 100% cotton, and so is the thread used to embroider it. The weave is soft and a bit nubbly, and absorbs water well. The towel is approximately 24 inches long, and the embroidery is a bit more than two inches wide.
