Copenhagen native Liv Berg creates these beautiful knit washcloths in Paris, drawing inspiration from traditional Scandinavian cloths and cleansing mitts.
Made with 100% organic cotton (GOTS certified) that is unbleached, Berg’s knitted face cloths are naturally dyed with plants. They are knit in a seed stitch pattern, which gives the cloth a gentle texture, useful for exfoliation. A crocheted hanging loop is convenient for air drying.
Several natural plants are used in the dying of these cloths, including weld and cutch (acacia)*. The ratio of plants used varies from batch to batch, resulting in cloths that range in color from rich, golden mustard to a deeper rust color.
Colors may vary.
