Basque kitchen towel 'Anchois de Fontarrabie' by Jean-Vier
The Jacquard kitchen towel 'Anchois de Fontarrabie' (Anchovy of Fontarrabie) is named after a small Spanish costal fishing village near the French border, also know under the name Hondarribia. The anchovies play an important role for the local economy, so much that there was even a conflict known as the war of the anchovies, between France and Spanish fishermen in the early 90's. You will find delicious dishes with anchovies in all of the restaurants in Fontarrabie.
Tradition and 'art de vivre' go hand in hand in the French Basque country. Here is the home of Creations Jean-Vier, the manufacturers of the famous cotton linen. The extremely high-quality cotton thread produces a fabric which is very absorbent and soft, but nevertheless hardwearing. The very precise and tight weaving process at Creations Jean-Vier produces fine precision motifs in a great variety of designs, minimises the risk of shrinkage and guarantees colours that stay vibrant. The kitchen towel is woven using 100% natural cotton and with its extra large size of 55 x 88 cm it can also be used as a table runner, a small tablecloth or an attractive wall decoration. It has undergone a specific treatment called finishing, which consists of a prewash and a drying and guarantees a remarkable quality and longevity. It won't shrink nor fade, is highly stain resistant and will stand up to years of use and washing.
