These SPECIAL EDITION towels were woven live on camera at the Peter's Valley Virtual Craft Show in May. That footage was also compiled into a short video showing my process for handwoven kitchen towels, you can watch it here: https://kellywoveit.com/pages/peters-valley-event
These kitchen towels are handwoven from 100% cotton yarn. They are durable and absorbent, but still bright, modern and fun! They can be machine washed and dried because they're meant to be used and enjoyed, and make time in the kitchen even more fun. The towels are 16"x25", large enough to keep up with everything you do.
About all my items:
This item was handwoven by me on a floor loom, mechanically identical to ones used in the 1800s. The art of weaving is considered one of the oldest technologies in the world, and the fundamentals have changed very little in that time. Each item is constructed entirely by me, and begins its journey as loose thread eventually transformed into whole cloth. Every strand of yarn is carefully threaded into the loom, and every inch of fabric is created by building one thread on the next, interweaving them to create intricate patterns. I love weaving precisely because of how tactile it is, and how much time I get to spend touching the yarn and enjoying the colors. Because of this, every textile I weave is a pleasure to touch and look at, and is a unique creation that represents hours of a labor of love, years of study and practice, and centuries of culture and technology.
