We have always been inspired by the simple elegance of French country living so it is no mystery as to why we are in love with Coucke tea towels. Created in 1931 by René Coucke, these quality tea towels are made in northern France with the traditional knowledge from the area, which has been a pioneer in weaving. Their cotton designs range from sweet to savory delicacies, Provençal, seaside, Paris, and animals. Add a touch of French style to your cottage kitchen or bring one as an inspired host or hostess gift for a warm weekend of fun.
Did someone say rustic chic? Created by skilled artisans, these beautiful and functional baskets are made from recycled rubber tires.
