Traditionally, linen tea towels were designed to commemorate coronations and celebrations. We love them today as modern heirlooms –– wrapped around gifts, they become special keepsakes. Packaging a gift with a tea towel is simple and impressive, not to mention environmentally kind. And the thoughtfulness is always appreciated by the lucky recipient. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
