Dishcloth / Tire Ste-Catherine


Dishcloth that wipes! Screen printing, the type of ink chosen ensures that the image is integrated into the fibers of the fabric, thus retaining its absorbent qualities. Linens What a History! are therefore incredibly absorbent and resistant, in addition to maintaining their beautiful color.

La Tire Ste-Catherine: Launched on the occasion of Montreal's 375th anniversary, this linen tells the story of what is arguably Quebec's most famous candy. It would have been invented by Marguerite Bourgeoys, the first teacher of Montreal who would have created this treat to attract in its walls the young French and native people. We will also remember that it is on Sainte-Catherine, patron saint of girls to marry, that taffy is traditionally made. Who will be surprised that this feast is celebrated by Marguerite Bourgeoys, she who was responsible for the education of the Filles du Roy, who came to the Colony to take husband? - Complete history and recipe of Tire Ste-Catherine to discover on your laundry!
