Lineflax & Roving's rustic linen goods are made of canvas-weight raw linen, rich in texture and integrity. Our aprons and dish towels are made to endure the most rigorous kitchen experiences. All of our raw linen products have been washed twice and line-dried to prevent further shrinkage. Avoiding the use of a dryer will help maintain the wonderful crisp hand this sturdy textile has to offer. Raw linen lightens slightly with repeated washes over time to a beautiful soft gray.
