Cotton Tea Towels

If you need a basic type of fabric that is not too heavy or thick, our thin flour sack towel fabric is just the thing. The soft fabric is absorbent and lint-free, cleaning up spills or messes without leaving anything behind. Craft Basics cotton tea towels are comparable to a thin handkerchief or cheese cloth. They are soft enough to use for drying hands yet sophisticated enough to print designs. These thin cotton towels come in a small napkin size up to a classic, rectangular shape that is perfect to hang for display. Tea towels are very soft in your hands, and do not feel starchy or rough. The thin fabric is woven a bit looser in this towel to allow for breathability and flexibility, but they are very low-lint making it a wonder in the kitchen or when dining and working outside. The towel is pre-washed, dried and is food safe so you can use them right when they arrive. Use for baking, hosting or crafting… this tea towel is just what you’ve been looking for!

Out-of-the-Box Crafting

As much as adults love reusable tea towels, kids like them, too! The thin flour sack material is more fun to use when crafting than regular white paper, plus you can get tons of towels for a super low price not available in big retailers or craft stores. How often can kids draw and paint on white cotton fabric? Never! This is an amusing opportunity for kids to work and create with fabrics that they can use in their everyday life.

Your kids’ flour sack tea towel crafts will turn into functional items, customized gifts, and can even be used for school experiments. The smaller square and rectangle sizes are super versatile and can be used as reusable napkins to bring in their lunchboxes, keep in their sporting bag, use at Scouts or mark their place at the dinner table. This is also a neat idea for birthday party craft activities or ice breaker activities during camp! If your kids like graphic and digital design, check out our online Design Station and help them create a one-of-a-kind printed towel. With lots of fonts and effects, they can create something high-quality and super cool. You can even add a photograph of them, their favorite sports player or movie character to make it extra special.

The cotton flour sack fabric that we construct our tea towels with is highly absorbent. The cotton weave holds well to paint and permanent markers, tie dye, fabric glue, ink and stamping, iron-on appliques and even hand-stitching. No matter what supplies you’re working with, tea towels are a blank canvas that works with almost anything. When kids work with their hands to create functional items, there is no telling what masterpieces can come alive.

Encourage your kids to explore their creative thinking with tea towel crafts. You can save money on boring craft supplies while also giving kids the joy of creating something they will actually use instead of putting on the fridge. Keep tea towels handy for any sleepover, rainy day, class project or holiday gift idea. Handprints, stamps, finger puppets or tug-of-war, these towels will fit the bill for any craft or child’s imagination.

The Difference Between Napkins, Tea Towels and Flour Sacks

A customized tea towel with fish on it At Cotton Creations, we offer high quality linens available in a variety of sizes and shapes to best fit your needs. We are proud to offer the most comprehensive line of flour sack and tea towels in the industry. While you are navigating your options, it helps to know the difference between the linens we offer. The main difference between napkins, tea towels and flour sack towels are the size dimensions! All of our Craft Basics towels are constructed from top-quality 100% cotton material, but our product offering is set apart by our wide range of sizes. Choose from napkins, tea towels and flour sacks in light-weight, medium-weight or heavy-weight cotton.

First, napkins are the smallest group of towels we offer. Mostly smaller squares meant for handheld and smaller tasks, napkins are ideal for drying your hands or wiping your face during mealtime or keeping in your pocket to dust off your glasses. Napkins are perfectly suited for large custom orders, like customized wedding napkins or linens for your hotel bar. Flour sack napkins are handy, absorbent and reusable towels that are meant to be put to use.

On the other hand, our flour sack tea towels are mainly used as home or event decorations. Tea towel fabric is traditionally lightweight with a rectangular dimension for neatly folding or hanging. Not too large in size, these cotton linens work to cover your lap during a meal or even as a placement under your silverware. Whatever your purpose, bright white or natural tea towels will surely add a sense of elegance and style to your space. These crisp towels are perfect for a tidy presentation, but can certainly be used for cleaning and baking as well. Tea towels have a breathable structure that is key while prepping food or handling delicate desserts. They are also a very modern and charming gift when customized! Add a family name, business logo or sweet song lyric to make your towels stand out.

Lastly, we have the famous flour sack towels. Made from the same flour sack cotton material as our napkins and tea towels, the traditional flour sack is a large square or rectangular piece that can be fashioned into just about anything. The larger utility sizes are ideal for working with your hands indoors or outdoors. The strong cotton weave resists tearing and pilling even after lots of scrubbing and trips in the washer. Great for custom digital or screen printing, the flour sacks have a large surface area for elaborate designs or covering big areas. Use untreated or customized flour sack towels as window curtains, table coverings or runners, decorative kitchen décor, business branding material and more. Add our flour sack products to your arsenal of sturdy, reusable and top-quality cleaning and decorating supplies.

A Wonderful Cooking and Baking Companion

We have lots of pricing options so you can get bulk tea towels without over-stocking your inventory. Always have a stack of clean, food-safe towels to rest over bowls of food to keep away bugs or heat, or place over bread dough while it proofs and rises!

Lay out on the table as a minimalistic serving trey or include in a kitchen-themed gift basket. These are truly the best cooking companion!

These can be used for fancy occasions, like afternoon tea, or for casual outdoor fun, like at a picnic! Keep a handful in the car, too, just in case. When you’re done in the kitchen and ready to host, you can put out clean, soft tea towels as dining napkins or to print your special menu on. These light-weight cloths add a touch of elegance to any wine and cheese party or dessert tasting you host. You can use the larger size as thin, flowy drapes or as a towel to dry off your dishes. The smaller sizes are perfect as gentle napkins during mealtime or even as basic placemats.

Particularly, these are great to use in high-class tearooms or to include in a house-warming present! Add a monogram or floral image for a bridal shower or birthday tea party. They make wonderful party favors! What makes these so essential is they last for such a long time, even after cleaning, cooking and washing.
