Whether you’re entertaining guests on the weekend or enjoying a routine meal on the weekdays, these linens can make any occasion feel special. Bees, a symbol of abundance, are in flight against the evocative colors of the Umbrian landscape with a honeycomb pattern that extends around the border of the towel. Also makes the perfect gift presentation wrapped around a bottle of wine.

The weaving of textiles has been done in Umbria since the 12th century by the tessitori or weavers guild. Artisan loomed in the Jacquard style with patterns and styles that compliment any setting from the most formal to casual and are used on a daily basis in the kitchens and baths of my Umbrian friends as well as in many of Italy's most refined hotels and country houses.
