Passion for Handmade and Sustainable.
Since childhood, my favorite pastimes have been sewing and dreaming up designs for my own home. From the start, I wanted to make my passion my career, but that did not happen and I ended up studying engineering. However, my love for sewing did not go away and I opened my etsy shop where I sell home decor items such as towels and blankets that I make myself. I found my favorite fabric to work with and how I would like to share my passion for handmade sustainable linen goods with you.
Living a more sustainable lifestyle sure feels good, but it doesn’t always look cute. It’s hard to opt for eco-conscious products when you can’t find much that reflects your personal style and looks good in your home, and buying items that you don’t love – no matter how good for the environment they are – isn’t truly sustainable.
I think that home necessities should be equal parts utility and style, so you can fill your home with items you love and feel good about! My collection of handmade kitchen towels offers just that: environment-loving flax linen goodness paired with unique designs in bright colors, so you can get the best of both worlds!
Linen or Cotton?
You might be thinking that sure, linen is cool, but what’s so amazing about it anyway? Cotton towels are all the rage and cotton is natural, biodegradable, and therefore must be just as good for the environment…right? Well, not quite.
Cotton requires a bouquet of pesticides to cultivate, not to mention an absurd amount of fresh water, and its production is, more often than not, stained with unfair employment practices. Minimizing your use of cotton is one of the best things you can do to lower your environmental footprint.
Flax linen is a superior textile in every capacity:
Linen Is 2x stronger than cotton
requires very little water to cultivate
flourishes without pesticides
is durable and long-lasting
is absorbent and fast-drying
Flax linen also boasts some amazing health benefits and is gentle on sensitive skin!
Lint-free and free of static electricity
My towels come in a variety of colors and feature beautiful, original designs. The designs are not printed but actually part of the weave!
This is called Jacquard.
Jacquard weave designs are not printed, they are woven in a double-sided, fade resistant vibrant colors, unique designs unlike anything you’ve seen before of this quality, washing machine safe and fade-resistant.
My linen kitchen towels are both high-quality and affordable.
Why choose my linens? I offer many unique and colorful designs to choose from.
Jacquard weave produces woven-in, reversible designs that won’t peel or fade in the wash!
All materials are natural and sustainably sourced.
Durable and long-lasting flax linen will keep your hands dry and your skin happy for years!
Great quality at low prices! FREE SHIPPING to Canada and USA on all towels!
Risks and challenges
There are few to no risks associated with this project.
I make my towels on demand quick and easy. And I also have a bunch of them sitting ready to be shipped.
I funding my new sawing machine because the old one has to go:(
We are shipping all items via Canada Post and the USPS. Our campaign ends in November, that gives us plenty of time to mail out the towels in time for Christmas.
Overall, the risks are very low.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
