- Linen tea towels become softer and more absorbent wash after wash due to their hollow fibers. Linen is also lint-free, so won't leave any bits of fluff on your glassware, and is 30% stronger than cotton, making it lovely and durable for use around the home.

- Tartx linen towels continue to increase in absorbency and will become softer with use. They will also maintain their color integrity wash after wash.

- Waterbased inks are not only better for the environment and for our health, they also get softer with every wash and will not crack over time.
- Printed in Colorado, USA.
What to say of all this Tudor business? A real live Shakespearean Soap Opera if there ever was one. And there were. As with so many of the subjects I end up building my pieces around, my interest in the Tudor history began with books. Oftentimes I listen to audiobooks while I work on the pieces themselves, finding inspiration to create something completely original or re-imagining centuries old pieces. As with so many great stories of dynasties, the stories about the Tudors are oftentimes most interesting when they are most personal.
All of the individuals in this enormous and oftentimes confounding family tree had and led such interesting lives (some of them dramatically shortened), that I have enjoyed paying a kind of tribute to their stories. For Anne I have her holding The Tudor Rose and collaged with pieces of an antique anemone botanical and ornamental papers and bookplates. I choose the anemone flower for one of its symbolic meanings "forsaken".
