*UPDATE: Whoa! We love that you love this round of calendar cloths. We have temporarily sold out of a few styles and will do our best to get more.
17 September 2020. Every year, a box arrives at the shop that looks perfectly normal, cardboard and scuffed from travel. But this box is different from all other boxes. It's full of calendar cloths, the once-yearly, limited edition cloths that arrive to a waiting list and our collective bated breath. Though the kitchen cloth is the workhorse of the kitchen, the calendar cloth can live as a casual wall hanging, clipped to a piece of twine or pinned to the wall throughout the year. Each cloth features an artist's unique design that conjures a mood or sentiment to usher in the new year. This year, we welcome the work of two artists: Isabelle Boinot and Mayumi Kuchihiro. With illustrations ranging from classic French pastry and flowers and fruits, to a watercolor place setting and café still life, they offer us a snapshot into the simplicity of day to day life, reminding us to live well and mind the passing of each day. At the end of the year, the calendar cloth can continue to hang on the wall or it can have a Cinderella moment, changing back to a workaday cloth.
