Dishcloths like this one are the traditional Swedish go to cloth for cleaning up tables and kitchen areas.  This whimsical Bengt & Lotta designed dishcloth is great for cleaning, but also adds nice decoration when not in use.

Klippans dishcloths are made of FSC certified 70% cellulose/30% cotton. The materials and the water-soluble coulor used makes the dischloths compostable.

Plus, you can be environmentally conscious while using it...

Sweden was the first country (in the entire world) to pass an environmental protection act (1967), and is well known for seeking creative solutions to be a leader in regards to well-being (including that of the climate and environment).  So it makes sense that the beautiful designs of Swedish Dishcloths disguise the hard working and environmental consciousness behind them.

Key attributes:

  • Super absorbent (15 times their weight in liquid).
  • Reusable.
  • Washable.  (In your washing machine or dishwasher).
  • Sanitary (quick drying makes them a better choice than moist sponges which leads to bacteria growth).
  • Waste Reduction:  Reduces waste created from paper towels [according to the EPA:  Tissue paper and towels (not including bathroom tissue) amounted to 3.8 million tons of waste in 2018]. 
  • Compostable/Biodegradable.  Nothing lasts forever (at least that should be the goal), and neither do Swedish Dishcloths. Simply add them to your compost when they have completed their use cycle.
  • All Natural.  70% cellulose/30% cotton.
  • Worth the price!  Great cost-per-use ratio.

Be part of the solution, not the problem, with these super absorbent and environmentally friendly Swedish Dishcloths.

 

About Bengt & Lotta:

Bengt Lindberg and Lotta Glave met in Stockholm at Konstfack (University of Arts, Crafts, Design) where they were studying graphic art and illustration.  Their playful Swedish inspired designs originally started with a cast iron candleholder and due to their popularity soon grew to an assortment of textiles and home accessories.

About Klippan:

Klippan has been a family run Swedish business since 1879; based in Klippan, Sweden in Skåne County in Southern Sweden.
 
Klippan is known for its high quality in both design and usage of pure fibers, their philosophy is to combine Swedish design with their long tradition of textile knowledge.  Klippan only uses natural material in their products and tries to use eco-material as much as possible.  Klippan is one of very few producers of this kind remaining in Europe.
