These wonderful Euro Cafe kitchen towels are made from 100% Pure 2 Ply Ringspun Cotton on Luxury Towel Looms. The waffle weave construction limits the lint and makes these highly absorbent. You will find these in high end European cafes, restaurants, and luxury homes. We recommend you wash them before using. These will instantly soak up any water without too much shedding or annoying lint and fibers. The 2 ply construction is very helpful for drying dishes, glasses, or just about anything in your kitchen. The size is so versatile that they may be used as hand towels as well.
