Idaho Dish Towel by Catstudio

This original design celebrates the beautiful State of Idaho. Terrell Swan, one of the owners of catstudio, spent his summers on his grandparents ranch in eastern Idaho riding horses & eating spuds. He insisted that this design be a beauty to reflect Idaho's natural bounty - it does!

The design is silk-screened, then framed with a hand embroidered border on a 100% cotton dish towel/hand towel/guest towel/bar towel. Three stripes down both sides and hand dyed rick-rack at the top and bottom add a charming vintage touch. Delightfully presented in a fab organdy re-usable pouch!

  • 100% Cotton
  • Machine wash cold and line dry
  • Packaged in organdy pouch
  • Measures 20" x 29"
