While Ikea is our go-to source for dishtowels, we wont turn our noses up a something a bit nicer. French linens are our dream kitchen towels, but we've never found a cheap source for the vintage ones that have the best texture. These are a nice compromise between the two.
At $16 for a set of three we wouldn't be afraid to use them. The three different patterns in a rusty red color, instead of the blue we see more often, provides a nice bit of variety.
