Koira kitchen towel by Lapuan Kankurit is decorated with a human's best friend, a lovely artwork by Teemu Järvi. This is also where the name of the towel comes from: "koira" is Finnish for "dog". The tea towel is woven at the Lapuan Kankurit weaving mill in Finland using European Masters of Linen linen and organic cotton. The material makes the towel absorbent and quick-drying so the multi-purpose kitchen towel also works well as a hand towel – get a bunch of sympathetic furry puppies to your home, a few for the kitchen and another few to cheer up the bathroom!
