A rustic touch.

Hang this beauty proudly in your kitchen for a rustic (and rust-extracted) touch of Romagnolo tradition. Following a 500-year-old technique, the artisans of Peromatto stamp each towel manually by dipping a wooden block into natural dye extracted from rust and impressing it onto the towel with the help of a mallet.

Description

Materials

100% natural cotton, rust dye. Dye is made following an ancient recipe with three simple ingredients: vinegar, flour, and rust.

Care Instructions

Machine washable. Rust-dye stamped linens are extremely durable! Upon first use, we recommend washing with a bit of bleach, which will help brighten up the color of the rust-based dye itself. For future care, gentle bleach treatment for stains will not affect the dyed patterns. Tumble dry low, or hang-dry and iron for best results.

Nota bene: Do not wash with hydrogen peroxide-based stain removers or color-safe bleach as these products will cause the color to oxidize and eventually wear holes into the fabric. Stick to natural Marseille soap, vegetable-based glycerin soaps, and regular bleach.

 

About the Producer

Located in Santa Sofia, a small city nestled within the Romagna region, Peromatto is a contemporary textile block printing workshop with roots in the age-old artisanal tradition of ‘rust printing’, stampa a ruggine, particular to the Romagna region of Italy. By combining modern laser technology with traditional wooden block stamps, they are able to carve out their nature-inspired designs with precision while still following the traditional method of hand-block rust printing. Each wooden block is then dipped in a natural rust-extracted dye and imprinted onto linen or cotton fabrics by hand with the help of a mallet. Learn more about the art of rust printing.
