Brahms Mount

We have just returned from a short visit to Maine, where we bought some great vintage stuff for the shop. We also had a chance to stop by the Brahms Mount textile mill, where they make some of our very favorite and most luxurious items: linen towels and linen day blankets.

Here is a short video of the 1930s shuttle looms:

Pictures of new vintage items to follow soon. Meanwhile, here are some more photos of our trip:

Hamam Towels

We have just received a beautiful range of hand loomed Hamam Towels. These are the towels traditionally used in Turkish Baths such as the Çemberlitaş Hamam in Istanbul. They are still woven in the traditional manner on a metiers a tisser, or hand loom.

Our Hamam towels are 100% cotton and become even softer and more absorbent after they have been washed. They are also the perfect size for a lightweight throw, tablecloth or shawl.
