VanCity Toile Tea Towel
VanCity Toile Tea Towels
For those who can't make up their mind... the Vancity toile holds all the landmarks to paint a picture of the Vancouver vibe.
In the style of the traditional French toile de Jouy, this pattern nods to textile history while holding the contemporary reality of our west coast cosmopolitan city.
This textile design includes my own renderings of the Kakaso'Las Totem Pole by Kwakwaka'wakw carver Ellen Neel, which is currently found in Stanley Park. It also includes a rendering of Skalsh rock, which has cultural & spiritual significance for Squamish communities.
Composition and Care
- 55% organic linen, 45% organic cotton
- Hand silkscreened with waterbased ink
- Machine wash warm, machine dry or hang to dry
- Iron on the highest setting
The ink I use has been wash tested to withstand the true life of a teatowel- they can be washed and dried without hesitation and will last for years. For best results, use a good stain remover but avoid bleach. Bleach breaks down fibres and causes fabric to deteriorate rapidly.
