Made in partnership with the Wren's Nest, the historic Atlanta home of the legendary author Joel Chandler Harris. This illustration is from Arthur Burdett Frost's original illustrations of Harris's Tales of Uncle Remus.
Every towel in this collection benefits the Wren's Nest and its mission: to preserve African American folklore and slave narratives.

These 100% cotton Down South House & Home dishtowels come in two varieties: Workhorse for $10 and Fancy Pants for $15. Both measure about 30”x30” and are screen printed by hand in a tiny red barn in Georgia.
Here's a question we get all the time. What's the difference between our Workhorse and Fancy Pants towels? Both are great quality and are hemmed on four sides. The Workhorse is a light, loose weave. The Fancy Pants is a heavier, thicker weave. We give the Workhorse to people who are going to get them dirty making memories. We give the Fancy Pants to people who like to iron their tea towels and display them in their kitchens. Stock up your gift closet with our towels for unexpected occasions.
