The Collection

For centuries Europeans have been using flat weave bath towels. Inspired by the trousseau tradition of carefully selected heritage linens, each item has a red embroidered number to mark each style. This first unique collection of all white heirloom cotton towels have an almost monastical spirit that will bring an understated luxury to your home.
