Make a charming gift out of this gorgeous illustrated kitchen towel!
For the past hundred years, flour sack towels have remained the cook's favorite choice for towels. Originally they were salvaged fabric from old flour or grain sacks. After the flour was used, the cotton sack was bleached, washed and trimmed. Over time it became the flour sack towel we know and love today. Flour sack towels are famous for their absorbency and softness...great for drying dishes.
Machine wash cold gentle. No bleach. Air or tumble dry. Iron on reverse side to refresh color after washing.

Mary’s vision drives every Mary Lake-Thompson Ltd. design, guiding everything from initial concept to each finished product. Mary started drawing and painting from the time she was a young child and never looked back.
Her daughters Sara and Abby served as inspiration in her first paintings, along with the wildlife and landscapes of rural California. In the early 80’s, Mary landed an art show at The Nut Tree in Vacaville, where she sold 60 paintings. After that, she began selling prints to local galleries, as well as door to door throughout California, working out of the trunk of her car. Following the success of her prints, she launched a greeting card company, using her own artwork on the cards.
Eddie Bauer then placed an order for gift baskets, soaps and lotion, which gave Mary the idea to design gift items and packages featuring her original artwork. Since then, Mary Lake-Thompson, Ltd. has designed and produced soaps, aprons, bath products, drawer liners, sachets, napkins, hats and of course, its signature flour sack towels. Mary has been able to use her own unique designs on all of these products, as well as reproductions of handpicked vintage art.
Mary Lake-Thompson, Ltd. is now a large small company, employing up to 50 people. All off Mary Lake-Thompson Ltd.'s products are designed, printed, packaged and shipped in the USA.
