Swedish Dishcloth - Dalahorses and Kurbits - 7 7/8" x 6 5/8" - Wiping up never looked this good...absorbs 15 times it weight in water!

This marvelously absorbent Swedish Dishcloth - Dalahorses and Kurbits dish cloth from Sweden's a wonder in the kitchen. You'll never want to go back to sponges or regular cloth when you see how it works. It softens when wet & washes & dries like a dream. Kitchen surfaces are virtually streak free. Made of earth friendly 70% cellulose and 30% cotton, it's durable (just wash it in your washing machine). And the motif will give your kitchen a Scandinavian accent

From Wikipedia:

The kurbits is an invented, fantastical symbol of vegetal fertility based on a gourd or pumpkin of biblical legend, principally used for ornamentation in Swedish folk art and on painted furniture and domestic objects. Very popular between 1720 and 1870, particularly in Dalarna and southern Norrland, the paintings and murals have mostly biblical motifs, such as "The Triumphant Entry of the Queen of Sheba Into Jerusalem", and the people and buildings depicted are as was locally fashionable at the time of painting. They were done by itinerant painters, mainly from Dalarna, who specialized in the style and whose signatures are to be found in many localities. A Dalecarlian horse, from 1950, painted in the kurbits style. Today it is still used for decorating tourist memorabilia from Dalarna.

    Loved this design so I purchased it for myself before the Winter holidays. 10 weeks and counting of daily use and with several cleanings has kept it germ free. It works just as well now as it did the first day. Some slight pilling but still bright, clean and stain free. Think these are the perfect dishcloths for me :-)
