Three’s a charm.
When it comes to tea towels, you can never have enough. Hang these rust-dyed artisan towels in your kitchen or bathroom for a decorative way to dry off wet hands. Our founder’s favorite use? Lay them out on baking sheets as a stylish base for fresh pasta creations in lieu of parchment paper. The linens will keep the pasta from sticking to the tray.

Natural cotton. Dye is made following an ancient recipe with three simple ingredients: vinegar, flour, and rust.
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.
About the Producers
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.
