Swedish Dishcloths

The Swedish dishcloth was invented in 1949 by the Swedish engineer Curt Lindquist, who discovered that a mixture of natural cellulose and cotton (70% cellulose and 30% cotton) can absorb an incredible 15 times its own weight. The cloth is fully compostable and machine washable. Made in Sweden.

Dishcloths have long been a staple product in the kitchens of homes in Sweden. Not only are they useful for everyday cleaning, they are also artwork that is suitable for framing.
