Butterfly Milkweed Tea Towel


Hand-printed tea towel featuring a burnt orange flower design. As part of the Woodnote Pollinator Garden Series, the flower is inspired by butterfly milkweed and began as an original, hand-carved block. We love how these have a slight vintage feel and would look great on a holiday table-top, but also can be used year-round!

This design was originally created for the 2022 Eat Drink Lucky Tea Towel Subscription.

  • Made of 100% organic flour sack cotton
  • Measures rounghly 18 x 24 inches
  • Screen printed with eco-friendly ink
  • Fast-drying and durable
  • The natural fabric helps hides stains for a longer life

Woodnote tea towels are individually hand-printed so slight variations in color and design are to be expected.
