Embroidery really does add a touch of magic to fabrics and textiles, and can bring something special to your towel collection. While our range of luxury plain towels lends itself to a classic yet cosy and homely feel, the range of embroidered towels has a delicate appeal that is really something.
The towels can be purchased in a variety of combinations, including sets of hand towels, bath towels and bath sheets – all embroidered. A great addition to your home or a nice gift idea, embroidered towels have a timeless quality and an historical feel.
And that makes sense – embroidery has been part of many different cultures for centuries. It is considered an art form. The earliest evidence of embroidery comes from China in around the 5th century BC. It has also been a big part of Turkish and Middle Eastern culture, and continues to be today with exquisite crafts being famous in the region. Ancient civilizations of South and Central America used intricate embroidery in their clothing, while in medieval England embroidery was a way of making records – the most famous example being the Bayeux tapestry.
Today, embroidery is a hobby many people continue purely for fun – to express themselves in an artistic way. Such admirable creativity can be combined with the art of interior design and home making to create an environment that is a pleasure to be around. Our embroidered towels will give your bathroom a cultured, maybe even ancient feel. The designs are rustic and traditional, such as the Roma Leaf or the Laura Leaf designs. The colours are similarly rustic in gold, brown or whites.
They are made with 100% cotton yarn and at 500 GSM are absorbent, soft to touch and luxurious in style, yet efficient and not too difficult to dry.
