The Product:

This chic, coordinated tea towel set is practical, but is also a cool way to enhance your kitchen décor.

  • 100% cotton
  • Hand-woven on bamboo looms by indigenous women weavers from Northeast India
  • Low-impact dyes
  • Lint free
  • Machine washable
  • Set of 2, in coordinated prints

    The Maker:

    "Sustainable Threads was born from our collective professional experience and personal interest in rural development, entrepreneurship and social justice. Among the various options, we chose to leverage our relationships in the development sector and start a fair trade wholesale enterprise. We currently work with over 10 artisan groups in India, with the goal of long term, deep partnerships. Our focus is on the people, not just the product. This model requires a significant investment in design and product development, factoring in the skill sets of each community. "
