Wyoming Dish Towel by Catstudio

The Cowboy State! This original design celebrates the State of Wyoming. Terrell, one of Catstudio's owners, has a great uncle who was the sheriff of Jackson Hole in the 50's!

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"
