A brief history of the Pano De Prato

Tea towels have a rich tradition dating back to the 1800s, originating from the repurposing of tightly woven flour sacks used for storing various food items. Initially employed for diverse purposes such as clothing, diapers, curtains, and cleaning towels, tea towels played a significant role as a household fabric.

In contemporary times, tea towels are cherished for their homely and simplistic aesthetic, coupled with high absorbency and lint-free cleaning capabilities.
