Jean Vier Sardine Tea Towel

Jean Vier Sardine Tea Towel


Napoleon Bonaparte was the first to can Sardines and these little soft boned oily nutrient dense fish are the inspiration for this red, white and French blue aquatic patterned towel.

Adorable used to dry pots and pans, it is equally wonderful as a towel on which to have on hand to wipe up spills during an New England Clambake gathering. 

Each tea towel is oversized with the pattern woven into the fabric on antique jacquard looms. The colorful Basque countryside on the borders between France and Spain provide the inspiration for the beautiful and charming designs found on each tea towel.

In the spirit of the French Basque tradition, Jean-Vier tea towels bring style and innovation together to create linens that are an alliance between man and nature. The history of Basque linen is intertwined with the history and culture of the Basque region. Originally woven for peasants who needed to protect their cattle from the harmful effects of the sun, the vibrant Basque linens of today are elegantly hard wearing and represent superior quality.
