Vintage flour sack towels have remained the cook's favorite kitchen textile for well over a hundred years. Early adopters used salvaged fabric from old flour or grain sacks which they bleached, washed and trimmed to size. Modern methods have facilitated mass production and beautiful graphics while maintaining the practicality of the originals. Nothing can beat the towels' absorbency, softness, and virtually lint-free performance, making them perfect for drying everything from everyday dishes to crystal stemware.
Mary Lake-Thompson studied art at the University of Colorado and the San Francisco Art Institute. She and her husband, Richard, met in the 70s and began a journey that has taken them from selling original prints at local art shows to a nationally recognized brand. Her namesake company has designed and produced soaps, aprons, bath products, drawer liners, sachets, napkins, hats, and, of course, her signature flour sack towels. The production studio is located in Oroville, California, and employs about 50 people. Mary's daughter, Sara, continues the tradition with her modern take on classic housewares called Montgomery Street.
