Traditional French tea towels add warmth to a French country kitchen

Country cottage essential. French tea towels for as little as $25!My kitchen has been undergoing something of a transformation. In addition to all new stainless steel appliances, the entire room was just painted in a crisp white with a navy backsplash. This is an extension of the recently completed navy and white dining room and adjacent den, still in process. (My husband fears that soon everything in the house will be blue and white. And, just between us, he’s not far off the mark!)

 

To add a bit of warmth to all of that white, I’ve been incorporating fabulous textiles — new dining chair covers, toss pillows, drapes and now kitchen towels. And, finding stunning kitchen essentials is easy at one of my favorite on-line retailers, French Fixe. 

This is an incredible resource for all things that are both French and oh-so-chic. Most of the products come from small, family run companies in France, some of which are centuries old. In addition to gorgeous gift baskets and boxes, delicious food and drink, kids’ items, must-have accessories, and table runners, French Fixe offers an amazing assortment of classic French tea towels.

According to a the Wall Street Journal, “… in France, tea towels have a special tradition. As with so many other mundane items, the French have raised kitchen towels to an art form. These beautiful examples look as if they should be framed—and often are.”

Although I won’t be framing mine simply due to lack of wall space, I am quite tempted! The cheery cotton jacquard kitchen linens and great graphics simply light up the kitchen.One of my personal favorites is the Jean Vier French Fish Tea Towel.

This towel depicts three types of fish that feature prominently in Basque fishing: sardines, anchovies and “merlu” or hake, in various shades of (you guessed it!) blue. 23 x 35 inches. 100% cotton. Retail: $25.00.
