During the Middle Ages in Europe, linen was a popular cloth which began the use of the term “linens” for household goods. Both linen and cotton are commonly used for such linens. Tea towels are known for their flat fabric that is woven which differs greatly from absorbent terry cloth bath towels.
Tea towels were used as drying cloths in 18th century England. They were special linens used by the mistress of the house to dry her expensive tea related fine china. This work was considered too precious and delicate for servants to be trusted with. Additionally, tea towels were a way for ladies to show off their delicate embroidery skills. While still used for drying, printed tea towels are also used for novelty, home decorative items.
