Printmaker and Designer Cassie Bouton's House of Bouton line is a great option for replacing disposable paper towels and napkins with beautiful handmade textiles. Her designs are inspired by everyday images and printed using non-toxic methods on USA-made unbleached 100% cotton flour sack towel.
Cassie has created a series of classic designs for practical items by drawing inspiration from memories of the decaying Victorian mansion she grew up in, 1930s and 1940s color palettes, and a love of cooking. The House of Bouton line is a wonderful balance of raw rustic fabric combined with vibrant vintage-inspired graphics.
House of Bouton products are wrapped in 100% recycled paper, tied with hemp twine, and shipped in recycled mailers. Pricing for these pieces range from $14 - $50 and can be purchased from the House of Bouton etsy shop, Terrain in Philadelphia, Queen City Emporium in Springfield, MO., Bloom Shop in Serenbe, GA., Sugar Kiss Boutique in San Diego, CA, and Molly's in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.
"I use this quote by William Morris often as it speaks to simplicity and utility and of avoiding excess and frivolity. If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.
