What's a Swedish Dishcloth?
The original Swedish dishcloth material was invented by a Swedish engineer in 1949. Three Bluebirds dishcloths are made with this same material: 70% wood cellulose from FSC certified forests and 30% cotton.
All of our patterns are designed and screen printed in Connecticut, USA.
