The torchon Bistro by Charvet is made from linen, which is very absorbent and lint free, combining durability with softness. The torchon is traditionally known as a dust cloth that has become fashionable for any rustic table setting as a traditional style country napkin. Its large size makes it ideal for other uses in the home such as a dish towel, bistro towel, placement or guest and hand towel.
Linen is also a green product of nature - renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. Since the Middle-ages the city of Armentières in Northern France has been known as the cité de la toile (city of the fabric). It is here that Charvet has been part of the industry for more than a century creating linen products with its noble and natural character perfectly mixing tradition with modernity.
