Jacquard tea towel by Tissage Moutet "Pomme"
"Ceci n'est pas une Pomme" or "This is not an apple" is a nod to surrealist René Magritte featured on French jacquard tea towel from Southwestern France. Made of 100% cotton, it measures 20" wide x 28" tall (50 cm x 70 cm) and is navy and green. Since 1919, Tissage Moutet has operated their weaving studio which is now headed by the fifth generation, Benjamin Moutet.
The Basque fabric tradition dates back to the Middle Ages when Basque farmers began weaving sun-protecting capes called Saial to protect their cows. This high-quality fabric will not shrink and yarn-dyed colors remain vibrant after years of use. Machine wash and dry.
