About RUSHdesign

 Old Friends Are Sometimes the Best

The homemakers of yesteryear cherished their used flour sacks. Over time, they transformed them into everything imaginable: quilts, aprons, dresses, baby clothes, sunbonnets, undergarments, even bathing suits!

Technology has not been able to improve upon the qualities of the old fashioned flour sack towels: their absorbency, their ability to make glassware and dishes sparkle, their durability.


The Original Flour Sack Towel!

Our Flour Sack Towels blossomed into beautiful works of art, as it was discovered we could inspire our family of artists to draw, watercolor, and dream their pictures onto the soft cloth. Most of our design ideas come from collaborations between the Rushes,our extended family, the shopkeepers and our customers (whom we always encourage to approach us with designs they'd like to see!)

RUSHdesign was the first to offer these original designs on 100% cotton towels, which are printed with environmentally safe lead-free inks on a generous size of 38" x 22".


RUSHdesign Today

In addition to this website, our towels are sold in kitchen shops, nurseries and garden centers, country and folk shops, museums, and specialty shops across the US.

(We have also sold our towels via the big web stores but we've become uncomfortable with some of their business practices. As a result, we no longer sell our towels via those big web stores.)  

Our customers use these towels in their homes much the same way as our grandmothers did in the kitchen  and also as curtains, place mats, pillowcases, bags and sachets, children's clothing, and gift wrap. Below is a video of Linda (our founder) discussing using our towels as gift wrap.

We are grateful to all of our customers, and thank them wholeheartedly for their patronage: they've truly made us what we are today!

We at RUSHdesign are intent on carrying out the same kind of legacy in our business as in our product: Quality, Beauty, Longevity, Integrity. We hold these values up as a commitment to you, our customers, and old dear friends.

We'd love to hear from you!
