Moutet Eiffel Tower Tea Towel

Moutet Eiffel Tower Tea Towel

$24.00

 "L'heure bleue...

...the blue hour, that magical hour between daylight and night when the sky's luminosity draws artists out of their studios to see light's last glimmerings..."

Beautifully woven by the highly skilled and creative Moutet weavers of France, a tea towel designed to capture Paris' most iconic monument at that magical twilight hour. 

The Eiffel Tower is silhouetted against the wonderfully evocative shade of blue. The tree branches frame the tower and birds fly home to their nests, as a girl on a scooter and a lone cyclist enjoy the last moments of light. An embroidered yellow heart is in the center of the tower almost like a moon rising in the darkening sky.


100% cotton.  Machine wash cool with like colors. Tumble dry low or for best results line dry. These densely woven jacquard towels will become even more absorbent with each wash.  27" x 20".

Learn More About Moutet

In 1919, Jean-Baptiste Moutet founded a small weaving mill on the banks of the Gave du Pau River in the town of Orthez in the Basque region of France. Working alongside other small industries, Moutet has acted as a leader in Basque weaving since its origins.

Renowned for weaving traditional Basque patterns on sturdy linen fabrics, the original linens Moutet produced were used as blankets for his oxen to protect them in the fields. Adorned with seven woven stripes, each representing one of the seven Basque regions.

Expanding the mill to 40 employees, Jean-Baptiste’s son, Georges Moutet, carried on the second generation of weaving after he taught himself the latest mechanisms in looming. Carrying on from generation to generation of Moutets, the third and fourth generations acquired jacquard looms, allowing for more complex weaving and patterns.

The fifth generation continues the legacy to this day. Reviving old patterns and sustaining the high-quality linens behind the name Moutet, the factory still stands in the Basque region and is proud to have received the honorable "Enterprise du Patrimoine Vivant" title - an award by the French state to recognize French firms for their excellence and tradition, making Moutet an official living heritage company.

With over 1,000 color options at their mill, each linen is cut by hand, meticulously inspected for quality, and finally labeled with the name Moutet - a nearly 100 year old name in French linen tradition.

For a fascinating, behind-the-scenes glimpse at what goes into the creation of a Moutet towel, please take a moment and watch this beautifully produced short video. The music and images are captivating and the love and care that goes into each towel is clearly evident. The very last two people that you'll see in the video are the current owners of the company, Catherine Moutet and her son, Benjamin.
