For anyone who is less familiar with flax linen bath towels, they may be surprised to hear how comfortable and soft natural linen bath towels really are. Not only do they feel soft to the touch, but linen bath towels are also highly effective. This is because linen is a highly absorbent fabric, instantly drawing water away from the skin without any need to rub the material over your skin. This makes linen bath towels both very relaxing and pleasingly easy to use. This towel has been crafted from Italys finest, organic, naturally crumpled linen.
It really gives a bathroom a lift when you introduce the fresh, modern style of this Italian bath towel. In fact, when you hold this lovely creation you can see that the artisan allows the design to land on the fabric in a slightly different way with each press of the printing block. It is the details like this which you only see when you look more closely that make our artisan craftworks so special. They are handcrafted with pride and an authentically Italian look and feel.
For this design, the artisan has printed the fabric a number of times. On the second layer of printing, they have overlapped the print over the first layer giving a sense of motion to the design. It can look quite like the waves on water. This approach to laying out this beautiful design gives rise to the name of this bath towel Ellisse sovrapposto translates as overlapped ellipse in English.
Since 1920, the Bertozzi family have been creating the most wonderful hand-printed and hand-painted fabrics. Using traditional techniques, these master artisans hand-carve blocks of pear wood to produce the stamps they use to print their own designs onto the fabric. The rich and vibrant colours they hand-mix come from closely guarded family recipes that are passed from generation to generation.
Variations in finish or appearance are not considered imperfections, but are the mark of a unique handmade item.
