Ambatalia Dish Towel Furoshiki

I'm really excited to be able to share my work with you finnally with an amazing eye behind the camera. I first met Paige Green working with Fibershed and fell in love with how she captures life. If you want a visual and heart felt treat visit her web site.

There are many ways you can use a square cloth. The Japanese call it Furoshiki but its been used around the world for centurys. I like to call it a square cloth. I find it very simple and very useful.
I have created a dish towel square cloth to add many more uses to it. It all about the fabric. These towels are made of Hemp, linen and organic cotton. Great for kitchen use.
Ambatalia twill tape tag for hanging on a hook. I throw mine on the oven rod thingy.
This towel is natural linen.
Tying and carrying lunch, becomes a napkin or table cloth.
Tying two knots on top of each other. With this tin, I put the first one through the handle.

This towel is hemp and organic cotton.
Two bottle wrap.

Pull them up to center and tye the first knot.
Second knot, tada!
I use this alot, for carrying casserole, gifting or transporting bread and so much more.

Two books. great for gifting, but there is no reason why you wouldn't want to carry them back to the library like this. I use this one the least, but it is so sweet.

So endearing and orderly! I would really feel I had a handle on the grace notes of life carrying things like this (and NEVER in a *shudder* plastic bag!)...
