Michigan Dish Towel by Catstudio

This original design celebrates the amazing State of Michigan in great detail - from Battle Creek to Holland (yes they have Tulips) to the Porcupine Mountains!!!

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!
