With its broad, 100% twisted cotton warp threads (maximum softness and absorbency) and slender wide-spaced double weft (pliable strength), this handy German towel is a jack of all trades. It's big too, 31" x 24". Wash and dry dishes, wipe up after spills, tackle the floors, polish glassware, you name it, this cloth does it. Dishrag, tea towel, cleaning cloth, chamois, shammy, schmatta...a rose by every name cleans so sweet. We love the simple contrasting stripe detail in the weft threads. It's the little things.
